Only released in 2018, Pixelmator Pro has quickly become one of the best photo editing tools for the Mac. The user interface, especially the way layers are managed, makes it look and feel more like an Apple-developed application. Building on the functionality from the original Pixelmator application released back in 2007, they have added comprehensive vector editing tools on par with Affinity Photo (or even Affinity Designer), making it a complete image editing tool. It is a shame there is no iPad application, but there are rumours it is currently in development. The low one-off cost is the icing on the cake and makes Pixelmator Pro highly recommended.
