Image editing (even Photshop) on Windows always feels wrong! Rasp

You're right of course - if you need tools to handle tilemaps, better animation tools, more advanced dithering tools etc. then a dedicated pixel editor will make more sense. The lack of any decent ones available for OS X is a serious obstacle for a lot of us though.

@Frank C: thanks for the settings! Not having ever used Photoshop, I wasn't sure what I would need to do. Though the huge price tag scares me... maybe I'll need to upgrade to 10.6 after all.

@skyhawk: Graphics Gale looks awesome. Never knew about that program. Too bad it's PC only. So that won't solve my current issue with the antivirus always kicking in on the virtual machine and slowing me down. I'm trying to get away from Windows altogether.
