I need to download a image editing program like Photoshop/illustrator, but it has to be free.
Can any one give me suggestions?

If it has to be free, then Gimp (https://www.gimp.org/downloads/#gimp-for-mac-os-x).

Hello and welcome to the forum! :) I'm not sure 'how many' imaging editing features you need, but Preview (a native app of OS X) is an excellent basic imaging editor (as well as a PDF file reader) - check this THREAD (http://www.mac-forums.com/switcher-hangout/320874-resizing-photos-send-attachments-email.html?highlight=preview+imaging) for some posts explaining a number of Preview's assets.

Before retirement, I used PhotoShop on a PC, and also played around w/ GIMP on a Linux laptop and found both had steep learning curves me, especially as a casual user - hope that you enjoy the experience and all goes well.

At the moment, I'm using Pixelmator (http://www.pixelmator.com/mac/) on my Mac computers which is quite powerful and easier than the others mentioned; however, there is a price. Good luck and let us know your results - this is an occasional question on the forum. Dave
