I've been using this for years now and it is a fantastic photoshop replacement. This is a great deal, highly recommended.

Looks like this is available at this price directly from their website ( https://affinity.serif.com ) too and includes a bonus:
BONUS - JR Macros: Channels
Switch up the light and colour in your images using these 12 Channels macros designed by James Ritson.

I've previously gotten screwed buying through the Apple (cr)App store when a developer stopped using it for publishing apps and had to buy them over again. Going directly through Serif for this. Thanks OP!

I feel the same way. Paying one time for this is really enticing, but Lightroom is still so much stronger for anything more than a few photos at a time.

Luminar is your anwser to the Lightroom replacement for a non-subscription based product. Plus or has some unique features that don't exist in Lightroom. They also use A. I for a lot of the editing modules that help with quick edits.

I use DxO Photolab. The big attraction for me is the auto correct for lens aberrations. On full auto, it usually gets me 90% adjusted to what I want.

Free trial:

I'm just not interested in any more monthly payments.

For what it is worth the Windows and iPad versions are also on sale, $24.99 and $9.99 respectively....correction, looks like they are running the 50% off sale across the board on their products., including Designer, which is also a pretty good Illustrator alternative.

Don't beat me up too bad! I use Photos on my iMac for editing, and typically edit a few pics at a time. I don't feel need for Adobe series yet, is this an upgrade from what I'm using? Thanks!
