Favourite App #2: Pixelmator
I used to use old versions of Photoshop, but I found it overwhelming and rather bloated., and I hardly touched many of the features. Pixelmator is less than 10% of the cost of Photoshop, and does everything I need it to (and an awful lot more). There’s even a version for the iPad.
A lot of my image manipulation work is basic cropping, sizing, and optimising for web, with the occasional overlaying and effects., and this a great alternative. Add to that, it’s a lightweight piece of software and opens very quickly. Plus I can import and export PSD files!
