    I wanted to use Gimp, but I cant because of the X11. Does anyone have anything else that will be good to edit a few pictures.

    I dont need anything crazy, I really just need to blur my managers face because he is not supposed to hang out with the staff, lol... anyone in the waitstaff buisness can relate I hope.

    Thanks,
    -Mike

    GIMP is great. Do you need some help getting X11 installed?

    Funny, I was just looking for something like that too, and came across Seashore:

    http://seashore.sourceforge.net/

    I've barely played with it but it seemed to support my Wacom tablet for pressure-sensitive brushes pretty easily, so I'll be looking at it some more.

    It's based on the GIMP code, too. But no X11!
    Doesn't have all the features - yet.
    But I downloaded the latest Release Candidate (compiled it as an Intel only app, instead of the Universal that it's availabe).
    For my basic editing/graphic needs, it does just fine.
    Myself coming from the GIMP, it took take some getting used to (it's based on the code, not a direct port of the gimp).
    but it is very quick and I see lots of potential in it (I submitted a request to be added to the dev team)

    I use Seashore for it's simplicity ... I can't get my head around the other more dedicated image editing apps ....

    And if you are looking for other functionalities that aren't included in Seashore or simply want to try another app, take a look at these:

    SmallImage 2: "simple and efficient tool to batch process JPEG files, resize them, recompress them, remove embedded profiles and make them ready for the web or store them efficiently"

    CocoThumbX: Mac OS X Thumbnail Creator

    CocoViewX: Mac OS X Picture Viewer

    ImageWell: "small, but powerful, image editing application that lets you quickly
    resize, crop, watermark, edit your images and then upload them to the web, save to your computer or email them to a friend"


    LiveQuartz: "powerful free image editor. It is based on layers and CoreImage filters"

    Image Tricks: "free application to edit and generate images"

    Xee: "lightweight, fast and convenient image viewer and browser"

    Yeah, I agree- Get X11 installed off your installation CD and get Gimp installed. It's not exactly OS X interface compliant, but considering I use the same app on Windows, Mac and Linux for everything from screenshots to photo manipulation it doesn't do badly

    I really dont want to mess with X11 yet, considering I am not going to be doing anything crazy... I am going to give seashore a shot, and if I need something more powerfull, then I will have to go to Gimp. Thanks for the help guys.
