Corel PaintShop Pro X6
"We're perfectly happy with all aspects of Corel PaintShop Pro X6 with the exception of the slow and constant processing.  The price is great for what you get. A full editing suite and two other image enhancing tools for £80. That's a tenth the price of Photoshop."

HDR Darkroom
"Whichever version you opt for, you can be rest assured that HDR Darkroom 2 will get you thinking about HDR a lot more. Unless you're already a HDR photographer of course. If your interest in HDR is on the wane, this program certainly could revitalise your interest. We've certainly had ours rekindled and can't wait for some annoyingly complex light to come our way."

Surprised you’re suggesting IOShutter over Triggertrap. Triggertrap’s app is way better, and available for Android.
