    Anything but Photoshop?
    Hi all,
    I am looking for another good image editor. I am not so keen on Photoshop (and it costs a lot of money). Any suggestions?

    The images I mostly deal with are bmp or jpg and mainly I need good color contrast and saturation, especially in the green channel. Most of the time I need to make judgements between very green, not so green and somewhat green.

    Gimp is really good, you can also look at Photoshop Elements 3.0 that retails for $99 (cheaper at some online stores) that I find is really good for photo editing/enhancing.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    Toy viewer may do what you want, the colour contrast tools are reasonable.
    Freeware so worth a try :-) Far more options in that little program than expected.
    Have fun

    Those are all great but graphiccoverter is more powerful and cheaper and continually upgrades. It is shareware and definitely a best buy for mac users.
