    Decent Graphics Program for Mac

    I know, I know Windows vs Mac blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada.....

    Until now, on the Windows, I've been very happy with a product called "Ulead PhotoImpact" I think the latest version I have installed and paid for is #11 Of course this is not made for Mac. I know that Adobe PhotoShop is kind of the standard, the yardstick, but it is not cheap, and I'm sure I'd never use even a small percentage of it's capabilities, and I understand the learning curve is quite steep.

    Thus, before I go and spend $200 or $300 on PhotoShop, I'm looking for some other options.

    Sure FREE would be great, but I don't mind paying for a good, easy to use piece of software. In the end, if I cannot find anything to fill the need, I will shell out for PhotoShop.

    Cheers!

    iPhoto is basically a program for looking at your photos, you can so some "VERY" basic editing, but nothing that really counts, what the heck, it is free with the OS after all

    I'll second the Elements recommendation. Also do look carefully at iPhoto. It does an amazing amount of editing and the price is not bad!

    Thanks guys, that looks like it would fill my needs, but Amazon won't ship that to me here in Japan, and I bet the Amazon Japan only sells the Japanese version of it....

    I'll have to look around and see what it what.

    Cheers!

    Hi Stu

    I have bought software from these guys before. Pretty cheap usually it might be a version or two out of date but hey most of the time i dont get to use the full features anyhow.

    Take a look here for $37 bucks you get Elements

    http://www.royaldiscount.com/adphel7oem.html

    Best of luck in this endevour.

    Edit" Oops just checked the shipping polcy and they only process non us orders of $1000 so i guess if you want it from them we can purchase it here and ship it to you. I find that strange cause i bought from them and I have yet to buy $1000 worth of software in one package.Very weid they accept Canadian credit cards.
