Super Easy Editing: www.picnik.com

The free site ?http://www.picnik.com provides easy access to the most common photo editing tools, making it extremely easy to Resize, Crop, Color and otherwise edit images.

Resizing and Cropping on a Mac

Apple's Preview program (on your computer at Macintosh HD -> Applications -> Preview) is a simple, but very capable program for not only viewing files, but for performing some basic graphic editing, too. A good help link from Apple is at:

On this page, under the "Viewing and working with images" section:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2506#images

You'll find instructions for resizing and cropping a graphic file entitled "Resize an image" and "Crop an image" under the "If you want to - Do this in Preview" table.
