I second the recommendation for Affinity Photo. While they have yet to add DAM capability it has plenty of features and is easy to learn. Their tutorial videos and hardback book are very, very well done. We were so impressed with it that we also picked up their Designer product and I'm now beta testing their Publisher software. All great stuff. And no subscriptions required.

Photoshop. I know its not what you want to hear, but just learn the features you desire first. The program is just to powerful to pass up once you understand what it can do. There are lots of good tutorials for this application.

Adobe Lightroom 6.2 (non-subscription MAC version) has been my staple for years. I also use Affinity Photo and Luminar 2018. Lightroom on 2017 Mac Pro on external drives and Affinity on a lesser equipped MacAir.

On a Mac, I use "Preview" to resize photos.
Click on your image (I store mine in downloads)
Wait a couple seconds and Preview should open.
The toolbar should have an icon "Markup" which looks like a Acura Logo. That will open more tools, one of which is the "re-size".
It's super easy. It will tell you what the current image is in pixels or inches, and you just select a new number. Done.

I miss Photoshop from when I had a windows machine. I did simple stuff like changing my photos or removing telephone poles, etc. But I'm not paying hundreds for software.

There are no shortage of inexpensive image processing tools on the Mac App Store. I’ve been using Photoshop professionally since version 2.0 (read: a long time ago). The only reason I would suggest it for anyone now is if they did offset / professional printing or relied on it in a . For the money (and even notwithstanding money) it’s a pretty poor, bloated tool for most people’s needs.

A colleague of mine (also a designer) once said it best—there was a time in our careers when we would do anything to be able to afford Adobe software. Now, most of the professionals I know would pay anything to not have to use it.

Affinity Photo is more advanced but pretty great. I do 99% of my professional photography in Capture One other than prep for the art prints I make, which I do in Photoshop. I don’t do a lot of image manipulation (more global processing).

If you are on a Mac, look into Pixelmator and if your needs are more basic, Acorn. As previously mentioned, Preview (built into MacOS) and even Photos cover the basics quite well.
