I would think image editing could be done easily on classic machines.
The Onyx is well over 10 years old, and it runs the Gimp pretty well.
An Indy is about 10 years old and it will run photoshop 3 decently. And
there are, of course, the irix specific paint programs, if you can find
them. Like Matador, Amazon, Satori, or TV Paint. And let's not forget

A desktop publishing program would be harder to find, though Scribus has
been ported to Irix if you are willing to run a new OS on your classic
SGI. There is framemaker as well. I'm sure there must have been plenty
of other programs, but I have no idea what they are.
