Design Programs for Mac

Hey guys, it has been a long time since I have posted any concept artwork here on the boards but I still surf the site quite a bit. My last computer which had almost all of my work on it crashed over Christmas break and I just purchased a MacBook for the first time. I've downloaded GIMP which was my main tool for concepts when I had my dell laptop. However, since I have none of my old files and I'm basically starting from scratch again, I thought I would ask what would be some good programs I could download and be user friendly for my mac? I'm tight on money so I doubt I'll be able to purchase anything like Illustrator or Photoshop anytime soon. I was just gonna ask if anyone here uses certain programs on MacBooks and if some are more user friendly than others.

 

Thanks for any help, Mike.

I'd suggest trying Inkscape, just have to download X11 to get it run as well. I have never had a problem with it.

One of the older versions of Adobe Creative Suite was free (CS2) for download, since it's an older no-longer-supported application. Illustrator CS2 is still a very powerful application, and should still be able to open many EPS and PDF documents. The use of the bezier drawing tools is not much different than the current Creative Cloud edition.
