There are tons of apps that allow you to manipulate images on your Mac. iPhoto and Preview are two from Apple, and there are lots more available from the Mac App Store and third-party software vendors. What you may not know, however, is that you don’t need a third-party app to do some basic image manipulations with your existing operating system.
