How do wish to use them : If you just want the data: You can download osm-data in a number of formats (shp, glm, file geodatabase) from . You edit those. QGIS also has a plugin that allows you to edit OSM-data. Merkaartor ( ) is dedicated desktop app that allows you to edit osm-data locally and export it if you want. With ( ) you can load, modify, export osm-data to svg of images.
