James asks…

Mac Program Help?

I need to download a free program like Photoshop or Paint.NET for my mac but I don’t know what to download (Something small. Photoshop is over 500mb)

Thanks!
I know, Photoshop is over $600, I meant like photoshop…

Administrator answers:

Photoshop is not free. Far from it, in fact.

The best FREE photo editor for mac is Seashore: http://seashore.sourceforge.net/download.php
Only 8MB.

You could also run GIMP through X11, but that’s tedious.

Betty asks…

are there any other programs like word?

that i can download of the internet free
they have to be for mac

Administrator answers:

If the free built-in MS-Word compatible TextEdit doesn’t do it for you:

Try the free, and M$-Office 2007 compatible (and OS X, without X11), latest version of Open Office instead, from:

Included: Writer (like Word), Calc (Excel), Impress (PowerPoint), Base (Access), Draw (M$-Paint) and Math (neat!).

Just make sure that if you want others to be able to view the documents using M$-Office Word, for example, save them using “Save as…” in .doc format, instead of the default “.odt” format. Or use the built-in PDF creation feature.

TIP: NeoOffice was my first choice, until now, they’re very similar and it’s just a matter of personal choice.
