Sorry for all these tedious questions, I'm new to Macs :-)

What is the best alternative to Picasa for Windows - I don't really like Apples Preview software and I don't fancy paying for a .mac membership?

iPhoto should be included with your mac that's pretty much Picasa for mac. There are some differences, but the basic concept is the same. There are some others, although I can't remember what they are - I just use iPhoto.

Irfan View, ACDSee, Gimp...all good image viewing/manipulating software which are a mix of Freeware/Shareware.

I would say iPhoto. Great app, included for free with new Macs.

You may wish to consider QPict. It is an excellent viewer and organizer. I tried lots of them when I came to Mac (only a few months ago) and settled on this shareware item.

Go to www.qpict.net

Qpict is shareware, not freeware, but in my opinion, more than worth it. Coming from Linux, I was adverse to paying for ANY software but I found QPict to be good enough to be worth paying for. It is now one of a very few paid applications I have purchased.

If you feel like installing Apple's X11, and then DarwinPorts, you can run two of the Open Source world's best alternative, F-Spot and DigiKam. Both are very, very good at this sort of thing. I bought QPict before I realized that DarwinPorts existed or else I might have done the same thing. Having paid for it now though, I use it vs. its Open Source equivalents.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
I was on the Mac-Forums honor roll for September 2007
