Any recommendations for photoshop for mac? I'd like to avoid the sales-pitch from the stores and hear some user experiences.

It's a great piece of software, but in many cases photoshop is overkill. If you just want to edit your photos, consider Aperture or Lightbox together with filters like Color Efex or Viveza which you can find here:

I only have the PSE for Mac. It's a great piece of software. I like the precision editing and the ability to work with layers.

However, I have found that Aperture is really good, better actually, for enhancing the photo, to bring out the best in the shot. Aperture also does a good job of cataloguing the photos... and you also can get your shots on photo stream through the iCloud.

They both have their advantages.

The full PS version? That, I don't know.

I use preview.

Under "Extra", go "change colors"; and you´ll find a basic but effective menu.

I got 3 pictures accepted on another aviation site, and they are presently in the A.net queue.

Granted, it may be too basic for some……..but it works for me.
