    I am looking for a basic, low cost photo editor for my current iMac (Yosemite) and have narrowed it down to Pixelmator or Acorn. Which would you choose and why?

    Owning both. But use Pixelmator exclusively. It's very extensive and easy to use (and ridiculously cheap). Can't go wrong with Pixelmator...
    Haven't used Acorn a lot though, so it might fill your needs as well.

    n.b. both are not "photo"-editors but image-editors. For photo-editors look at lightroom...
