    Affinity Designer

    Vector art & design • Imagined by designers, created for Mac

    Affinity Photo is a great alternative, its easy to learn if you already know photoshop and can even open PSD files

    You can try Affinity Photo. Still, Lightroom is my favorite tool when it comes to photo editing.

    Probably it's the best option. It has a lot of functions - from brightness/contrast to fragment correction. You can also combine several pics into one. As for color correction, there's still nothing better than VSCO app:) But it depends on what you want to get, there're many more options

    Gravit

    Design better, collaborate faster

    After looking for a new software for graphics to do vector I settled for Gravit. It's free, well featured and very fast! I absolutely fell in love and can't suggest it more. Sketch is also good and has a lot of resources but it's paid and I'm not a huge fan of subscriptions. GIMP used to be my go to but the UI is starting to show it's age.

    I have been using GIMP for years on Linux and OSX and I like it. But I'm not a professional designer and use GIMP for a very limited set of picture manipulations.

    We use Sketch at Forest (www.forestadmin.com) with Zeplin (zeplin.io). Great combo.

    Sketch is really a gem for the interface design. You can add plugins to make your life easier and there are no excessive features. It also doesn't take a lot of storage on devices and works much faster than PS.

    For interfaces & visuals: it's as powerful as photoshop but much simpler (and cheaper)

    Figma 1.0

    The first interface design tool with real-time collaboration

    *Disclaimer: I work at Figma If you're using Photoshop for UI design, Figma is a great alternative. It's free, based in the browser so you can use it on any computer, and offers some unique features like collaboration, vector networks, prototyping, and more. :)

    I like the application easy and fast, but missing the animation effects that are given in other tools such as invision and sketch.

    Biased since I help build it. But we're on all major platforms (iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Chrome and even your web browser!). It's focused 100% on photo editing.

    it can be used to edit light and shadow effect in simple way, not as almighty as photoshop. But i think it is enough for our daily use. it also get basic color correction and hsl adjustments.

    Sketch App Sources

    Provides free and premium design resources for Sketch

    depends on what are you trying to do . Honestly nothing compares to photoshop if you do lot of work with images . Sketch app version 50 or latest is the next best thing . Remember thou its roots are for vector assets & is not as powerful & versatile as photoshop when editing images . Gimp is an another open source alternative but i never personally liked it.
