    I don't know Mac apps, but I think you can probably google for "gimp" and use it on the mac to make images like avatars and signature graphics.

    I hear GIMP is a whole lot harder to work with than Photoshop.




    Keep that in mind ace.

    Yeah I'd say photoshop. I don't know why it would be different for a Mac

    GIMP isn't harder than photoshop; it's just not as powerful. I guess people mistakenly see that as it being harder to use.

    That said, use photoshop if you can.

    Well I tried using gimp to see what it was about, and just couldn't figure out how to use it. So GIMP may not be "harder," but photoshop is a lot more intuitive.

    When was this?

    Last time I tried gimp was a couple weeks ago, and it was easy enough to do what I needed to get done.

    That's because you're used to photoshop. I started out with GIMP a long time ago and learned it in a day or two. When I switched to PS last year, it took me a lot longer to learn it because I wasn't used to anything. They're both pretty easy to learn if you're willing.

    Ha

    I suggested GIMP because it's a Unix program, Mac runs Unix, and it's free. PhotoShop costs money unless you steal it.

    Are you at a Starbucks typing a novel so everyone can see you're a writer? I mean, what's the fun in writing is no one can see you do it?
