I have only just moved over from PC to Mac.
Paint shop pro 8 was the last program that I used.
I don't know much about image software but you could try Gimp. Or photoshop.
The obvious inexpensive alternatives would be Pixelmator or Adobe Photoshop Elements.
The Gimp isn't really a native Mac app - and whilst it's powerful you may find it rather unfriendly in use. It does, however, have the advantage of being free. Personally I use the full version of Photoshop, but if I had to compromise, Pixelmator would be my choice.
Try pixelmator (around£49), GIMP (free) or perhaps Artweaver (free)?
I switched from a PC to a Mac earlier this year and Paint shop Pro 6 was my image editor of choice. You will be surprised to learn that there aren't any affordable Mac alternatives to PSP8... there are a few options that are reasonably priced but don't offer all of the features that PSP8 (or even PSP6) offered.
The two that I have are Pixelmator and Photoshop Elements. Pixelmator is the one that "feels" more like Paintshop Pro. When I absolutely need a function from Paintshop Pro, I fire up PSP6 within Parallels.
Oh, for vector illustrations, I use InkScape. It is free and does a very nice job.
GIMP and Photoshop Elements are not replacements for the latest versions of Paintshop, which fully supports 16-bit images.
I think Pixelmator doesn't support 16-bit.
For a free alternative, you still have to look at Cinepaint.
