It addresses one of the biggest shortcomings of Apple’s Photos by giving it the ability to use any image editing application as an external editor.

Affinity Photo - First Impressions

If you haven't come across it before, Affinity Photo is a Photoshop competitor from Serif labs, the same people who brought us the excellent Affinity Designer (an illustrator competitor). The software got a lot of attention when it was launched, and Apple named it the best Mac App of 2015.
