    I can vote against Pixelmator. Been using it for a variety of projects and it has failed me every time. Wanted to believe in it, but it’s no good. Stay away.

    It would definitely be worth adding Ribbet to your list:


    It is an excellent online photo editor based on the Picnik platform, and for a limited time all their premium features are free. Ribbet has thousands of effects, stickers, frames, and advanced effects like levels, clone and curves, and all uploads and edited photos are kept in an online history for registered users.

    There is no other photo editing software that is as great as Adobe Photoshop. I use it often on family pictures and the pictures i take when i am travelling abroad. Adobe Photoshop has so many great features.
