Since CS4 is getting a little behind now, I need to think about what I'm going to do...Can anyone recommend an alternate more economical editor that will do layers and "near PS" capabilities?

I think your answer is keep using CS4. The photo editing applications that cost significantly less than Photoshop generally do not approach the CS4 set of features.

If you do want to try alternatives, it seems like Pixelmator and the GIMP are the ones to check out. But again, CS4 will probably still be more productive. It might be different if you had like CS2 or older, but CS4 is still better than most other software out there.

A current version of Lightroom plus CS4 for the occasional touch-up is nothing to sneeze at.

I concur.
