I just want to try out some effects and was wondering what the easiest free software (for mac) was?

By the way, I'm getting aperture sometime soon, can it do merging of pictures?

Thanks.

I was an aperture boy for a while but moved over to lightroom which i feel is far superior, both cant paste images over each other, so try gimp or photoshop for that.

Try a lightroom demo from the adobe site.

I find gimp very hard to use, I'm a mac person. I don't like having to figure things out. :P Just kidding.

Where do you merge images on Gimp? (it's in freaking Norwegian so the Norwegian "photo-language" is confusing me)

I liked Light room though. Very mac friendly. :) I just don't get how I can drag/save the photo I edited in my documents.

Johanna, can you not download an English installation of Gimp?

Photoshop by far is the easiest method I've used. I've tried others but photoshop just seems to blend images better. It will almost never mess up a merge unless there's a significant amount of distortion and gap between photos. As long as you give photoshop enough image, it will piece it together flawlessly.
