solution to opening images:

If you've tried opening images by going to FILE > OPEN and it hasn't work, try dragging your image from your finder to the app on the dock... That worked for me.

There's no undo button which is a pain; the alternative is that it creates a new window (layer?) every time you edit something..

Small tool fills niche

The Preview application that comes with MacOS is great, and can handle many image viewing functions. However, ToyViewer fills an important niche. The Effects menu provides many nice image filters. The File/Export supports a lot of formats not supported by Preview. While it does not do a huge number of functions, what it does it does very well. A great simple and free tool that helps me when other bigger tools fail.

This is a pretty cool app. And it's free.

What's not to like? It's free, fun, doesn't take up much space, and I made a pretty cool wallpaper with it in less than 5 minutes. It's a little a tricky at first, but don't let that discourage you because it's easy to use after a few minutes. You also don't need an undo option because it layers the effect in different windows in progresssion to one another for comparing and contrasting. So if you don't like the most recent edit all you have to do is click on the red 'x' located in the upper left corner where it should be and try again. And did I say this app is free?
