I am looking for an image and graphic program, to work along side of dreamweaver. I just recently changed to mac so my adobe programs don't work (pc). Don't have a lot of funds to repurchase for mac, will do a dreamweaver cloud, but still need a image program, thx in advance.

What features do you need, and how much are you looking to spend?

Here's a brief list of low-cost and even free graphics editors that are held in high regard. Their capabilities vary.

Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/downloads/) (free)
Seashore (http://seashore.sourceforge.net/The_Seashore_Project/About.html) (free... based on Gimp)
Pixelmator (http://www.pixelmator.com)
Acorn (http://flyingmeat.com/acorn/)

Pixelmator is gonna be the best of the bunch, IMO. It is as close to a PS replacement, and very affordable.

How about Photoshop Elements.
Good choice if you are already familiar with Adobe products.

In some circumstances you can move your licence cross-platform. Details here:
