For the past decade, at least, the dominant Photo Editor, especially among professionals and serious amateur photographers, has been Photoshop.
There have always been rivals, but recently two new progams have stepped up to present serious challenges.
Affinity has been available for the Mac, but has just launched a new version also available for Windows. Current Canadian price is $55.99! That is a onetime price, as opposed to Photoshop’s monthy subscription. There is also a free trial.

Another program making a serious debut is ON1PHOTO RAW 2017. This one is currently on sale for $99.99.
