By far the best, lightest, and cheapest visual design tool.

Wow, that's a LONG product page. Well done though. Relevant: @liveink shared Sketch, a vector-based image editor a while back - http://www.producthunt.co/posts/162
It's long been my go-to on OS X.
pixelmator is legit as well
A good, low-cost alternative to Photoshop. Interface is fairly intuitive, and performance seems pretty good. I'm a web and app developer that just needs to create custom header graphics with some text and images some times and Pixelmator works great for that.

Adobe photoshop is a great software but has become, over the years, a huge dinosaur. Obviously it has tons of feature, but in the real world of developers ho needs to create and change assets, pixelmator comes to the rescue!


It is straightforward and powerful, and has lots of tutorials and learning resources straight from the developer's site


It has maybe too many windows for all its tools
