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.
