LiveQuartz

I want to let my fellow Mac-users know about a layers-based image editor I recently discovered: LiveQuartz. It uses CoreImage filters and it's faster than Gimp (on my system) and properly integrated into Aqua. It can't do everything Gimp can, but it does enough to replace Gimp in my regular day to day use. The only downside is that you need Mac OS 10.4 to run it and a recent Mac with a CoreImage-compatible graphics card to get good performance out of it.
