OS X Image App
Does anyone know of a free application for OS X to edit images? Crop, resize, etc. The only thing that I could find that came loaded on my computer was iPhoto, but that seems geared towards photo albums, not editing individual photos.

I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to do stuff like that myself using GD for something, but cropping without a graphical interface is kind of a pain. What I really want is just something simple like the paint program that comes with Windows.

I snagged ToyViewer for that purpose - have barely used it, so I can't really say much still, but it seems basic and reasonable.

That was pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Worked fine for me.

GraphicConverter is a great shareware program that lets you do a whole lot of things to images. It's also scriptable, and has its own internal methods of batch image processing. I found it useful enough to register.

Preview (which you have) lets you rotate images, but that's about it.

If you feel like dabbling with the Mac's Unix side, you can try installing ImageMagick with its command-line image manipulation programs, or even The Gimp, a full-on open-source Photoshop clone. However, I don't know how easy that is if you don't have admin access to the machine.

Yeah, I don't have admin access. If I get more bored than usual one day at work, I might try seeing if I can do it all from my directory, but, hmm, I kind of doubt it. Anyway, thanks for the pointers.
