Adobe’s Photoshop is a powerful graphics editing program. Its ability to edit, combine, and manipulate photos and bitmapped artwork has made it the industry standard. However, with all that power comes a mind boggling amount of features, complexity, and a high price tag.
Other Mac graphics programs are out there which can perform many of Photoshop’s functions at a lower price. Some even can do things which Photoshop can not.
In this presentation [+Steve Stanger](https://plus.google.com/113091634513165768886/posts) will take a look at the plethora of new photo editing apps available in OS X, many of which started life in iOS.
##About the presenter##

Steve’s interest in photography started when his Mother gave him his first Kodak Instamatic camera at age eight. This then led to his disappearance from many photos considering he was the one behind the camera (most of the time). Steve pursued photography through his teen and college years. At some point photography “got away from him” to be rediscovered a few years ago with the advent of better, more affordable digital cameras. Many of Steve’s photographs are shot in New Jersey. He believes that, “to take great photographs you don’t necessarily have to travel too far from home.” Visit Steve Stanger’s Website for to learn more about him.
