Graphic editor (mac)

Oct 27 2009 | 8:08 pm

What programme (apart from Photoshop) do people use to edit / create the graphics for matrixctl and so on these days (on Mac)? I’ve been using Acorn instead of my now defunct copy of Photoshop for other graphic work, but Acorn won’t open .pct files!

I can’t afford to lash out on something as expensive as Photoshop, so cheaper suggestions please!

I’m quite taken with Pixelmator, which has a Photoshop-like interface (except in sexy shade of black!), high on features but lean in code, and a bargain at less than 40 quid.

If you have X11 installed, check out Gimp.

Thanks guys,

In the end I’ve gone for Pixelmator – simple, elegant, does the job!
