You can edit 16b in OSX w/o Photoshop

You can have a look at Pixelmator. It is not as full featured as Photoshop (not surprising as it costs a fraction @ $15), but it is getting better with every update and it works the same as Photoshop, including keyboard shortcuts.

The fatal flaw of Pixelmator is no 16 bit image support. It's not a serious amateur tool. Paint Shop Pro is by far the most capable image editor. Unfortunately it is Windows only and I have no desire to  buy Parallels and a copy of Windows or edit back and forth between OS X and a Bootcamped Windows. Not having a viable alternative to Photoshop is all I miss about Windows.

You could always look at CinePaint (http://www.cinepaint.org/). Has 16-bit editing. And it's free. Or PhotoLine (http://pl32.com/index.php), which is shareware and also supports 16-bits per channel.
