"Like Photoshop", the best I can think of is the GIMP 
(/usr/ports/graphics/gimp or I hear 
tell Photoshop is more capable, but I haven't used it in about 10 years 
so I don't really know.

For basic editing (crop, resize, gamma, change file type) xv works just 
fine for me (/usr/ports/graphics/xv or

BTW these are not part of FreeBSD, but developed and maintained by third
