more OSX help required!

I need an image editing tool! I have a great picture I want to use as an icon, and it's the perfect shape so I don't even have to crop it. It is, however, too big, and I can't find a way to edit its size. iPhoto doesn't seem to allow that, nor does the preview thing. Any ideas?

There's something called GIMP that's free.

Or you could download an old shareware version of Paint Shop Pro - Version 3 is pretty easy to use.

If you want to use GIMP, make sure you have the X11 server installed first (this is the standard way software written for unix systems displays graphics)-- if you have Panther/OS 10.3, it'll either already be installed or on one of the CD's. You can also download it from Apple. If you don't have 10.3, you may be out of luck, as they've stopped distributing the version for Jaguar/OS 10.2. However, you may be able to find someone with a copy with a bit of googling.

To install GIMP, first you'll should install fink. This is a good front end to a lot of open source software in general and stuff only available in source code form (like the GIMP) -- it handles getting needed libraries, compiling the binaries, the whole nine yards.

Try Graphic Converter - you should be able to get it from Tucows here.
