Everything can look better. Grab a handful of digital images and no matter how good they are, there's always room for improvement. Even if they are perfect photos, they may not be the exact right size for the website or blog you're posting them to. You can manipulate your image files with expensive proprietary tools, although that can be pretty expensive. Or you can use free apps to do your work, but even things like GIMP are fairly complicated, and require that you have X11 up and running on your system. Or you can go with a more "bare bones" solution: just enough tool to get the job done, but without all the bells and whistles—and dollar signs.

ToyViewer is a tool that lets you examine and tweak image files. It handles the standard Mac repertoire, including GIF, TIFF, JPEG and all; in addition it can work with many PSD and SVG files, as well as others. Use it to look at images, and also modify them for you. Functionality lets you flip, clip, and resize images, as well as adjusting color, brightness, and contrast. Save your handiwork off into one of several different image formats, allowing you to convert JPEGs to PNGs and more.

ToyViewer is a free download for your Mac. It runs under OS X 10.4 and later. If you're still using an earlier version (Panther, Jaguar, Puma), they've still got older down-rev versions that include much of the same functionality.
