Free image editing software?

Looking for free software that can resize images, add background layer, add text, similar to Photoshop but without all the bells, whistles and cost.
Anyone have any luck with some out there.

Look up GIMP. It's open source, and free.

If you don't find something to do the trick, consider Pixelmator. It's regular $29.99, but is frequently found on sale at half-price.

Give Fotor a try, it's free.

It may not be as powerful as you require, but it's worth a look.

I waited for Graphic Converter to get added to a MacUpdate Bundle, and I really like it. But it's at least $40.00 by itself.

Saw an article on this software called PixelStyle (PixelStyle - Graphic Design Software for Mac), it's free and looked interesting.

Well, talk about timing. And luck. I wanted to ask this very question as I just upgraded to El Capitan. The upgrade knocked Adobe Photoshop right into the dustbin, and that's the only image editing program I have ever used.

ehMac, the last refuge of the technologically bereft?

Seriously - look at Pixelmator. It's polished, very inexpensive, and unless your Photoshop needs were 'advanced', it should fit your needs. Do check out the Pixelmator blog and read the comments from users. There is also a companion iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch version.

GIMP is good, free and was just updated in mid-July. It used to rely on the X11 Window System, but is now a native OS X app.

Hmmmm, I am still using Adobe Photoshop CS3 and it works just fine with El Capitan.

I much prefer Snapheal though, as it suits my needs perfectly athough it is now $69. I bought it way back when it was about $15.
