What's your Mac image editor of choice? Lemme know in the comments.

GIMP for semi-serious photo editing. Skitch for adding arrows and text boxes and such. ThumbsUp for batch resizing ( All free.

I use Acorn but I’m not in love with it–I might even try Pixelmator based on your recommendation next time I need that level of power.

However, I use Skitch several times a week, and love it. Not only is it good for arrows and text boxes and such, you can also use it to scale and crop images.

i got acorn during macheist3 and then found out that unlike every other app from macheist, NO FREE UPGRADES to 2.0 ……..

i use picturesque (also from macheist) and skitch for web upload stuff

picasa for management

I use PhotoShop Elements 6. It was pretty cheap, and is pretty full featured (at least for what I need it to do.) It also comes with Bridge (although not the whole thing) which is much better than the organizer with the Windows version of PhotoShop Elements.

I got PhotoShop Elements 6 with my Wacom tablet, as well as Corel Painter Essentials 4. I vastly prefer Painter, but that’s for image creation rather than editing so much. I think GIMP would have to be one of my favorites, though, since it’s pretty customizable (never mind that I can’t make plugins work!).
