    Depends what you want to do. Macphun is worth a look to. The same people behind Nik Software.

    Any particular reason you're looking to replace Photoshop? What are your main uses and functionality you're looking for in a photo editing application? (Besides the general answer of photo editing, of course.) If you get a little more specific, we can be a little more specific with our recommendations.

    I'm looking to replace photoshop because i think it's simply too expensive.
    I would like a photo editing app that's not to hard to use, it doesn't need to have the most advanced photo editing features (I'm a hobbyist/beginner), but beside that it doesn't need to have the most advanced photo editing features, I want it to be great with the features it got. ;)
    I hope this is specific enough else tell me :)

    Are you trying to replace the full Photoshop program? If so, Photoshop Elements is a much cheaper alternative (although still more expensive than some of the options mentioned already).

    You can also buy the retail version of Lighroom. However, at $10 a month for both Lightroom and Photoshop CC, this is actually a very good deal.

    In the App Store Pixelmator is only $29. Learning Pixelmator is a $5.99 app that has over 40 hours of training videos.
