    At work (on a windows machine) I use photoshop on a daily basis.

    Not an expert by any stretch, I probably only use a tiny fraction of what it is capable of but I can do what do as it were. I basically take a photograph of a product (hi-res taken from supplier image library), scale it down (typically 500px sq), add some decent looking text, opaque the image, and upload to a website, nothing flash and not editing images in the typical sense.

    At home I've a MBP, I need a program that can do the same stuff on a mac. Is photoshop the best way forward, are there any alternatives people would recommend over and above PS, any decent free software out there?

    There's always Photoshop Elements, that's a much cheaper option which will give you a very familiar interface and allow you to do much that you can do in the full version.

    Pixelmator is very good, hear good stuff about Acorn as well. Both are aimed at PS users.
