Well there is one thing that I have to ask about Mac's cause I have only had one for about a week and a half now. Is there a program that I can use/get on an Intel iMac G5 17" for free that does things like putting pictures together, drawing over, and adding words in the picture. Pretty much, anything that does what Paint does on Microsoft.

Any input will be very much appreciated!! :mac:

It's all good.

Hmm...

Use GIMP. Google it, and download the OS X version. That's what I use, and it's AWESOME.

the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs

Sounds like you are doing low-end graphic work, so universal binary is not critical. Things will be slow, but not necessarily for what you are doing.

(I wonder how slow GIMP is on an Intel Mac compared with Photoshop. Anyone tested this yet?)

Well, I downloaded it, but it won't run cause when I try to open it a window pops up saying "You need to install Mac OS 11"

It's all good.

I believe that is referring to X11, which should be included on whatever install DVD came with your mac.

You need to install X11 in order for GIMP to run on your Mac.

Yes yes, the **** that came with the computer.

When you open the disc after it's mounted scroll down and look for a folder called something like Extras or something like that.

THANK YOU! I have been looking for a Paint replacement since I got my Mac! I had no idea that was what graphic converter did!

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.
