Gimp is free - www.gimp.org

Indeed - GNU Image Manipulator Program is quite sufficient for most image editing tasks, its scary name notwithstanding. –  Piskvor Jul 12 '10 at 17:11
    
hopefully I will not get any viruses. Could this also be used for logo design? –  dotnet-practitioner Jul 12 '10 at 17:20

+1, GIMP is an excellent program but isn't easy to use by any means. gimpology.com is an excellent site for some various tutorials –  DWilliams Jul 12 '10 at 17:47

Also check out Inkscape. It's a free vector/image program, good for logo work and design.

I find Pixelmator a great application for image editing. Has a lot of great features for a rather low price. http://www.pixelmator.com/

Another freebie Paint.net:

Rather good and easier to get going with than GIMP - but probably not as powerful.

Paint .Net is for Windows only. The question states that it's for Mac OS. –  spong Jul 12 '10 at 20:25
