    It depends on what you want to do. You may want to try iTunes and iPhoto, of course.

    For playing YouTube videos as they were songs, try CloudPlay. For composing music, try GarageBand. if you want to edit music, try Logic Pro X.

    For photography, you may want to try Aperture or Photoshop Elements or Pixelmator. Or the open-source GIMP.

    There are several apps available in both categories (Music and Photography) at the Mac App Store. Just take a look.

    Check out Lightroom 5. You can get a 30 day trial from Adobe to see if you like it.

    My personal favourite image editing software is PixelMator. Very close to photoshop but a heck of a lot cheaper, and is a native Mac App.

    Try Picassa as an alternative for iPhoto. It has some editing and sharing capabilities, but its not Photoshop
