Now that we (almost) have Photoshop, I can't see why any digital photographer shopping for a computer would choose anything other than a Mac. And as you say, DV ain't so bad either. I use iPhoto, iMovie, QuickTime Pro, and iTools, plus drag and drop CD burning from the Finder, to satisfy my client's needs. And the best part, all those tools (except the $29.99 upgrade to QT Pro) came with the computer I was going to buy anyway.

  • OS X -- Photographer's Delight

    If you want to explore the new and fascinating possibilities opened up by the marriage of the Mac interface with UNIX, check out the free, open source "alternative" to Photoshop, GIMP.

    Installing and using GIMP is good introduction to the dark UNIX underbelly of OS X. You'll have to install a UXIX-based windowing system, and the GIMP application itself.

    You can find step-by-step instructions geared to people like me who were absolutely clueless about UNIX on the Mac OS X Hints website:

      I was wondering when we'd hear from the GIMP guys! ;-)
