If you're not using them already, you can do quite a bit with either iPhoto or Preview. Advanced image editing requires more powerful software - and that costs - but you're aware of that.

Have a look:

If you are a student you can get photoshop CS3 Extended for 300 bucks. If you happen to be in the state of WI at a state school you can get it for 180.

GIMP is a good application, with plenty of help available online. Please be aware that it requires X11 (which is on your install disk and pre-installed in Leopard)

On your Tiger install disk you should find X11 which is required to run GIMP.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 can be had for $79.

Otherwise Gimp or Seashore which are free. Might as well give them a try!
