If you ever take photographs, there’s a good chance you’ll have hundreds of pictures on your Mac that need editing and tweaking at some point (if you don't already). But if iPhoto and Preview don't seem to be up to the daunting job, and you can't splurge on Photoshop, give the free GNU Image Manipulation Program (or GIMP, for short) a try. Here's a guide to get you started with this surprisingly robust program.
It hasn’t been quite a full year since Adobe last released a new version of its consumer-centric image editor, Photoshop Elements. During this time, the company has worked hard to incorporate more code from its big brother, and the impressive results are available now.
While Adobe Photoshop is the image editor of choice for many Mac users, its high price keeps it from being an option for many of us -- so the news that free alternative GIMP now comes with a Mac OS X installer is like music to our ears.
I love spending my afternoons peacefully lying in a field, staring up
at the sky and looking at the figures and formations my mind conjures
up from the clouds, from cats to dragons to my boss’s face asking me
what the heck I’m doing lying in a field and not in the office on a
Monday afternoon. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create your
own images within cloud formations without ever having to leave your
desk. We’ll use Phoenix, Aviary.com’s Web-based image editor, which is
akin to Adobe Photoshop but doesn’t require you to install any software.
