http://www.pixelmator.com/

Available in the Mac App Store, still on sale for $14.99, and does about 90ish% of what Photoshop does. An update is coming soon which will add more features, better shapes tools, layer styles.

Or The Gimp (sorry, do not have experience with that software).

Have you considered Photoshop Elements. Not the full Photoshop but still pretty good.

If you are still in school you can get a significantly discounted rate:

Otherwise, GIMP as suggested!
