For the Mac users among us.

Came across the following this morning, on macrumors:

GIMP is a popular and fairly powerful free image editor from the linux world that is basically like a freeware version of Photoshop, complete with many of the tools used for photo retouching and image manipulation that you’d expect. It’s a great free PS alternative, but Mac users have long had to install X11 to get it to run. But not anymore! The newest version of Gimp for Mac OS X is bundled as a self-contained native app, that means no X11 installations, no Xcode, nothing but a simple dmg download.

Available for download at gimp.org

Thought it might be of interest to some of you. Especially as its free.

Thank You, GIMP is a very ancient tool from Linuxworld, it can basically handle all the same stuff as Adobe PhotoShop can do, and as it is said in this article, it's free...

But You can actually use GIMP on Windows computers too, and as I say I have used it on Linux for at least 10 years... It takes some time to get used to, but once You get the hang of it, it's a great tool...

If Your demands are not as high, and only for rescaling and cropping or things like that, You should take a look at Seashore too (seashore link)
