Pho­to­shop CC Web www.adobe.com Price From £9/$10 per month

The mar­ket-lead­ing im­age-edit­ing pro­gram for Win­dows and Mac is much more af­ford­able than it used to be, if you sub­scribe to the Cre­ative Cloud Pho­tog­ra­phy plan.

Pain­tShop Pro’s sta­ble­mate is the de­fin­i­tive paint­ing soft­ware for Win­dows and Mac, with a su­perb ar­ray of nat­u­ral me­dia tools. Pain­tShop Pro makes a de­cent com­pan­ion pro­gram for artists want­ing to pub­lish their art in print or on­line.

Affin­ity Photo Web www.affin­ity.serif.com Price £40/$50

An ex­cit­ing 2015 launch on Mac, this pow­er­ful and af­ford­able im­age ed­i­tor is com­ing to Win­dows shortly, although at the mo­ment its photo ma­nip­u­la­tion prow­ess far out­strips its paint­ing tools.
