If you want to use a powerful software to do image manipulation and do not want to use Photoshop then the open source alternative is called:

GIMP

No, not that type of Gimp....this one:

<a href='http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/' target='_blank'>GIMP image manipulation software (open source) website</a>

or you can get a ready to install version for a small fee here:

<a href='http://www.macgimp.org/' target='_blank'>MacGIMP website and forums</a>

One important caveat is that GIMP does NOT do CMYK which only Photoshop can do...if RGB is fine for you then look no further...if these don't mean anything to you then GIMP is fine (CYMK is a colour system for pro's)

Cheers,

Richard
