Seashore Simple Image Editor for Mac
Seashore is an open source image editor for Mac OS X’s Cocoa framework. It features gradients, textures and anti-aliasing for both text and brush strokes. It supports multiple layers and alpha channel editing. It is based around the GIMP’s technology and uses the same native file format.However, unlike the GIMP, Seashore aims to serve the basic image editing needs of most computer users, not to offer a replacement for professional image editing products. And the wonderful thing it is Free and you can download here here: seashore.sourceforge.net

PPC / Intel, Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later
Seashore has textures and anti-aliasing for both text and brush strokes. It also supports multiple layers, alpha channel editing and uses the same native file format as GIMP. And due to Cocoa, it sports a much slicker OS X friendly user interface that definitely looks better than GIMP.The beauty of SeaShore is that it’s a lot simpler than GIMP and feels a bit closer to Photoshop in the way the menus are laid out. Seashore replaces GIMP’s floating panels and nested dialogues with a friendlier single-window interface for each project. It’s 100 per cent Cocoa too, so is completely OS X native. A sidebar has layer and image data, while tools can be accessed from a menu bar at the top of the document. They’re the usual collection of image editing and selection tools familiar from other Photoshop clones.
