Affinity has released a new photo editing App for the Mac and the buzz is that is a viable alternative to Photoshop. I'm glad to hear it, because the Adobe "Cloud" service is getting very expensive at over $50 a pop monthly and they need some healthy competition. Right now they offering a FREE beta download.
From the company website:

With instant redraw from its live tools and effects, Affinity Photo presents a refreshingly fluid editing experience, the highest quality retouch tools, deep and accurate colour, and great compatibility.
