CyberLink’s PhotoDirector started activity as a workflow addition to Adobe Lightroom. It has aback taken on functions begin in Photoshop and added hand-holding advice actualization like those in Photoshop Elements to become an all-in-one photo alteration appliance for photo enthusiasts. CyberLink always adds new accoutrement like acclimation layers, masks, painterly AI filters, argument kerning, and guided edits. The software matches Photoshop with AI sky replacement, bodies masking, GIF animation, and abounding added absorbing AI-powered effects. You additionally get banal media from Shutterstock—and now iStock by Getty Images, too—if you buy PhotoDirector via subscription. Both ancient acquirement and cable options are available. Admitting some adeptness see all this as feature-creep, the affairs charcoal absorbing in both its account and across of capabilities.
While PhotoDirector does absolutely accord Adobe a run for its money in agreement of photo workflow and angel editing, it lacks some able actualization begin in Lightroom and Photoshop, such as raw camera book Profiles and geotagged maps. Still, it goes aloft Lightroom with cartoon tools, face-beautification tools, and becloud effects. Unlike Photoshop, it additionally includes nondestructive workflow and accumulating alignment features. Face tagging, content-aware article removal, and added avant-garde capabilities are at PhotoDirector users’ disposal. There’s alike a body-slimming tool, which abounding of us will acknowledge afterwards abacus communicable pounds.
PhotoDirector is attainable for Windows 10, Windows 11, and macOS (10.14 and later). Both Mac and Windows versions crave a a 64-bit processor and at atomic 4GB of RAM. This non-subscription adaptation of the app is alleged PhotoDirector 13 Ultra, and it has a account amount of $99.99, admitting that’s usually discounted online. You can array PhotoDirector calm with our Editors’ Choice-winning customer video editor, PowerDirector, for $169.99.
The cable options are a little different. A $54.99-per-year cable alleged PhotoDirector 365 gets you the photo affairs forth with accepted updates and agreeable packs. Addition cable advantage is Director Suite 365. That’s a $29.99-per-month ($129.99 per year) plan that includes all of CyberLink’s media software forth with plug-ins, agreeable packs, and 100GB of billow storage.
By comparison, Photoshop Elements costs a ancient fee of $99. For Adobe Lightroom, you pay $9.99 per month as continued as you appetite to accumulate appliance it. ACDSee Pro additionally costs $79.95 one-shot, and Corel AfterShot Pro lists for a ancient amount of $79.99. The added professional-targeted DxO PhotoLab and Capture One Pro amount $219 and $299, respectively.
A absolutely activity 30-day chargeless balloon of PhotoDirector is castigation for the amount of your email address. Afterwards that time period, it converts into a bound adaptation of the affairs that lacks exceptional effects. It requires added than 1GB on disk, so accomplish abiding you accept some amplitude available. Agenda that the balloon is not upgradable to the accountant version, so you charge reinstall it if you adjudge to buy.
PhotoDirector is a 64-bit application, acceptation you can booty advantage of added than 4GB of RAM—something you’ll appetite aback you accept a lot of high-res photos attainable and are accomplishing abundant angel manipulation. It additionally agency it won’t run on an older, low-power 32-bit system.
When you aboriginal blaze up PhotoDirector, you see a burst awning agreeable you to attainable the appliance in Abounding or Accurate mode, forth with tiles highlighting new actualization and tutorials. On aboriginal breach the absolute program, you’re offered billow syncing for your photos, article Lightroom additionally offers. The ancient acquirement fee gets you 25GB for a year for storage.
After this, a third and final box appears, alms another plug-ins such as LUTs (lookup table filters), frames, clipart, and music for slideshow backgrounds. Activity the cable avenue aback you acquirement the software gets you all these goodies, too.
CyberLink is always afterlight this software, and subscribers consistently accept new effects, fonts, templates, and alteration tools. Aback my aftermost review, the affairs has benefited from new article analysis for silhouettes and masking, a bokeh effect, AI-powered blush enhancement, Getty iStock content, new band furnishings and management, a photo-beat music synchronizing aftereffect for activated photos, and Ablaze Hits effects.
Previous updates added photo activity tools, a atom burning effect, Canon CR3 support, and abounding audio and angel furnishings and agreeable packs. These accommodate LUTs, accomplishments music for slideshows, frames, sky replacements, annihilate effects, and fonts. Authoritative Shutterstock and Getty images attainable to subscribers should be a big draw for anyone who needs banal art.
Previous updates added avant-garde actualization including Photoshop-like band options, Rotate Cloned Objects, AI Deblur, Color Replacement, argument effects, blow art, and bigger LUT support.
The latest PhotoDirector adaptation doesn’t accommodate any desperate changes to the program’s interface, which was clear, functional, and adorable already. PhotoDirector bypasses Photoshop Elements’ abstracted Organizer app, too: You can import, organize, edit, and consign photos central the capital PhotoDirector application.
The affairs starts up bound and best alteration operations are snappy, but I occasionally ran into the capital agenda pausing on my PC afore appearing.
As is accepted amid pro- and near-pro-level photo workflow apps, PhotoDirector uses modes. That agency there are all-around tabs or buttons that about-face the interface amid altered functions, usually organizing, editing, and sharing. PhotoDirector has six modes: Library, Adjustment, Guided, Edit, Create, and Print. Like Lightroom, PhotoDirector lets you accept which of these buttons appears, admitting you get to the advantage by right-clicking on the appellation bar, rather than in Preferences.
Switching modes is as simple as it is in Lightroom Classic. Aloof tap the button up top. Aural anniversary of PhotoDirector’s modes, a left-side console offers mode-appropriate options. In the Library and Acclimation modes, the console is added burst bottomward into two tabs, Activity and Metadata for the first, and Chiral and Presets for the second.
The capital examination breadth is flexible, with a few options of its own. In Library mode, a ample actualization of the photo sits aloft a filmstrip-style attending at added pictures in the folder. Alternatively, buttons at the top let you see aloof the photo, a arcade browser of thumbnails or filenames, or a full-screen actualization of aloof the accepted photo. In accession to examination one ample image, you can additionally analyze two or several in Library mode.
The Arcade actualization can be filtered by photos you’ve flagged or color-labeled, or those you’ve edited. I’m blessed to see that you can clarify the actualization by camera archetypal and lens, as you can in Lightroom Classic. Hover the abrasion over a thumbnail in arcade view, and you see ablaze appraisement and abatement buttons for attainable appraisement and selecting. Aback you’re examination one ample image, the aforementioned choices arise forth the basal with blush labeling added. You additionally accept the advantage to add controls for circling and aback and advanced arrows.
In Acclimation mode, you can see a breach actualization assuming an angel afore and afterwards your edits. Flipping through images was abrupt and delay-free in testing, as was all-embracing affairs response. Like Lightroom, PhotoDirector lets you zoom alone to preset sizes—25 percent, 33 percent, and 50 percent, and so on—rather than alms a full-range slider like the one on ACDSee Pro. But a distinct bang switches amid zoomed and unzoomed, which is convenient.
I like the way adjustments are aggregate into Regional and Bounded groups, and the acclimation console is topped with Chiral and Presets tabs. I additionally decidedly like that double-clicking on a slider allotment it to the absence position and that you can acclimatize them with the abrasion wheel—Lightroom is inconsistent about the latter. And I absolutely acknowledge that (Lightroom-like) arrows let you collapse the ancillary panels.
Undo is able-bodied implemented, and an accomplished acclimation history console shows not alone all antecedent tweaks but additionally a thumbnail at the top announcement a mini actualization of those tweaks’ effects. Clicking on any history access applies that point to the abounding angel view. In all, PhotoDirector gets aerial marks for its interface. You can’t abstract the program’s panels to float anywhere on screen, as you can in ACDSee Pro, but I doubtable that’s not article anybody wants to do.
The photo acceptation chat groups zoomable thumbnails of images on the agenda by date. As with Lightroom, you can baddest photos for acceptation from these thumbnails. You can administer Auto-tone, Auto-Denoise, and alike aftereffect presets, such as B&W Cool, Faux HDR, or Fantasy Pink during import. You can additionally administer keyword tags, renaming, and a absorb notice.
The affairs can acceptation raw camera files, of course, in formats such as Canon’s CR2 and Nikon’s NEF. Raw about-face detail and blush are good, admitting Lightroom brought out added detail and truer colors in antecedent raw acceptation on analysis images. In the past, Capture One has led the backpack in raw acceptation quality, but I accept yet to analysis it in this annular of updates. PhotoDirector is somewhat abaft Lightroom in abutment for new camera bodies. For example, it can’t yet appointment with raw angel from the Sony a7 IV but or Canon EOS R3, but it does now abutment Canon’s adolescent CR3 book format, and I was afflicted that it let me acceptation RAF raw shots from a Fujifilm X-T4 and a Nikon Z fc.
I activated acceptation achievement with a accumulation of 146 raw images from my Canon 80D. The acceptation took 3:58 (min:sec). That’s commensurable with the industry-standard Lightroom Classic’s 4:09 and accepted customer best Photoshop Elements’ 5:29. I accept yet to analysis added photo software on my work-from-home setup.
Another blazon of importing, tethered shooting, is assuredly accurate by PhotoDirector. The affection alone works with some Canon and Nikon DSLRs for now, but you get a bang button, forth with the adeptness to change acid settings like f-stop, bang speed, and ISO.
The affairs offers all the accepted authoritative accoutrement with calmly attainable ratings, blush coding, and abatement accoutrement in the Library interface. And, as I’ll actualization in the abutting section, it alike offers face tagging, a able alignment apparatus that’s been attainable in Photoshop Elements for several years. Geotagging and maps, however, are still absent.
If you don’t accept a adequate photo of your own, a PhotoDirector cable lets you use banal photography from two of the bigger names in the game. A Shock Photos button at the basal of the larboard aftereffect opens a window abounding of evocative photos. You can chase for topics, baddest assorted thumbnails, and again hit Import. A analysis sample was 16 megapixels, and it was artlessly in my Library to adapt and consign at will. The latest adaptation adds iStock by Getty images. You don’t get the abounding archive of either banal service, but at added than 4 actor images combined, you’ll apparently acquisition article that works for you.
PhotoDirector offers all the basal adjustments you’d expect, including exposure, contrast, white balance, and sharpness. And the all-over fixers—red eye and birthmark removers—are added to the bounded acclimation brushes. Agriculture and alternating chase the ablaze access of Lightroom and Photoshop, assuming you the aftereffect rather than an outline of your advised crop.
PhotoDirector additionally has pro image-editing tools, such as curves and levels. The closing lets you dispense highs, lows, and midtones with controls on a three-color histogram, with another quarter-tone controls, too. The accent curves apparatus gives alone three ascendancy credibility if you accept the Tonal arena box checked, but if you uncheck this, you can add lots of ascendancy points. Addition absolute chic apparatus actuality is one that lets you acclimatize the accent by boring on the abode in your angel you appetite to change.
When it comes to pumping up or acid bottomward on ever aphotic or ablaze areas, PhotoDirector adds a brace of levels in amid the accepted brights, midtones, and darks. You get bristles sliders—Brightest, Bright, Midtone, Dark, and Darkest. This bureaucracy lets you use the histogram’s Actualization Over/Underexposed Areas apparatus and again absolute these areas with a added adapted slider. PhotoDirector’s Auto-tone abracadabra baton button, like agnate accoutrement in every photo app, formed beautifully for some photos, but not so able-bodied for others.
Another image-correction apparatus that formed able-bodied in testing was Dehaze. I begin that this did a bigger job than Lightroom, which tends to add a blush cast, usually blue. PhotoDirector’s Dehaze was about as adequate as DxO PhotoLab’s best-in-class ClearView tool.
The program’s geometry acclimation accoutrement let you fix the butt and pincushion baloney of telephoto and advanced lenses. The Keystone alteration tool’s vertical and accumbent controls let me align adulterated curve at the abandon of photos of buildings. The Auto Keystone advantage does a adequate job straightening out barrio attack from below, and it circumscribed the abstract abandon of the photo. A fisheye attack addled it, however, with its added distortion. There is a Fisheye Baloney adjustment, but it wasn’t able abundant to assuredly absolute my 8mm shots.
CyberLink has added some new blush acclimation accoutrement aback my aftermost review: the AI-powered Auto Blush Accessory advantage and Three-Way Breach Toning. The aloft opens a chat box with a slider for the backbone of the alteration and again applies it aback you abutting the dialog. An adverse ancillary aftereffect is that you can’t use the Before-and-After breach awning to see the aftereffect unless you accomplish a archetype of the image.
For the ultimate blush control, three-way split-tone blush acclimation lets you change the hue, saturation, and activity for highlights, midtones, and shadows. You move the cantankerous cursor about the blush caster for the three accent levels to acclimatize their blush settings independently. It’s absolute agnate to the Blush Grading console that Adobe alien in a 2020 Lightroom update. These accoutrement should be acclimated sparingly unless you’re activity for a heavily brave effect.
This access creates a archetype of your angel for creating, so that the aboriginal charcoal unscathed. In it, you acquisition the Bodies Beautifier, Photos Effects, Advance or Remove, Extract or Compose, Photo Merge, Frames and Watermarks, and 360° Photo Editor. It’s a adequate accumulating of tools. Featured in the access are Sky Replacement, Glitch, Dispersion, Sparkle, and Ablaze Rays. The Guided Deblur didn’t about-face a bleared photo into a altogether focused one, but it did advance it. A hardly bleared photo was alike bigger improved.
New for Guided Access is the Ablaze Hits effect. These add activated aglow overlays (a array of bokeh or sunstar) to accord the attack added interest. You accept a actualization arrangement for the ablaze article overlay, and you can again acclimatize the Fade, Softness, Brightness, and colors of the effect. You can additionally about-face off the activity if you appetite a still shot, and acclimatize the acceleration of the activity if you do appetite it. You can position the aftereffect by affective it about with the cursor, but I ambition you could additionally change the admeasurement of the ablaze orb. Flip the bury angular or angular to taste. It’s an absorbing charge-up to accord a characterless attack an impactful boost.
If you’ve apparent the Prisma adaptable app, you apperceive how fun it can be to about-face absolute cameraphone shots into artsy, painted-looking images. PhotoDirector’s AI Style Transfer, attainable in Adapt mode, does the aforementioned affair for your DSLR photos. You alone get 10 styles included with the affairs unless you subscribe to Director Suite 365. Otherwise, AI Style Packs amount $149 each, but they are absolute cool, abnormally the Chinese Painting pack. The furnishings took about 20 abnormal to administer on my photos.
You can acclimatize the backbone of these furnishings and abolish it for baddest areas of the angel with a brush. Bigger yet, the Being Another apparatus lets you calmly administer the art aftereffect to aggregate but a person. It formed instantly and flawlessly in my testing, bearing a arresting image.
Another advantage is Administer aboriginal color. It creates a blush palette for the painting aftereffect appliance your image, rather than appliance the palette included with the effect. I begin that appliance the arrangement blush arrangement produced a added drastic, apish result. I would like added controls, and remixing capabilities. For example, the canvas creases in the archetype aloft weren’t adjustable, and applying the aftereffect a additional time produced the exact aforementioned effect, acceptation it doesn’t recalculate the effect. A Reapply apparatus would be nice here.
In Guided mode, the Sky Backup advantage lets you instantly administer a added affecting sky than the arid one in your photo. It begin the brace in my analysis attack of the Vatican easily. A dozen preloaded skies are attainable aural the app, and you can download more. Some alike affection affective clouds for use in GIFs or video files. You can acclimatize the calamus and bound for the aftereffect and change the blush casting of the acreage or the acknowledgment of the sky.
Adobe Photoshop Elements afresh alien a photo activity apparatus that uses AI to actuate a photo’s accountable to breathing the background. PhotoDirector’s photo activity apparatus (on the Guided tab) offers a lot added control, admitting it’s beneath automatic. To get started, artlessly draw an arrow on an article in your photo in the administration you appetite it to move. You can ascendancy the speed, as able-bodied as pinning areas that you don’t appetite to move.
New for adaptation 13 is the adeptness to add accomplishments music that pulses to the exhausted of the animation, although that requires exporting it as a video file. This aftereffect is abnormally acknowledged with sports images, and I can see adequate use cases for it in amusing posts. You can save your aftereffect not alone as an activated GIF, but additionally as MPEG-4 or WMV.
Another air-conditioned activity is alleged the Burning effect, on the Actualize tab. It lets you baddest an article in your photo that will bark off and abroad into particles. You artlessly mark the breadth you appetite to disperse, accept a actualization for the particles (circle, square, and so on), a size, and direction. You can use this for either still or activated images.
The third activity blazon is Motion Stills, additionally on the Actualize tab. I had a little agitation accession out what aftereffect this was declared to produce, until I watched an allegorical video. The ambush is that your antecedent media needs to be all attack from the aforementioned viewpoint. Alternatively, you can alpha with a video (for added agency to do this, see Video-to-Photo, below). If you move the camera at all either during video or still shooting, the aftereffect is unconvincing.
In the Guided mode, the Annihilate Aftereffect makes your photo attending like an aesthetic misprint. Admitting that may complete unappealing, it’s absolutely a air-conditioned look, as you can see above. Controls let you about-face the aftereffect angular and angular and change the achromatize (or transparency). As with added Guided effects, you can automatically exclude the analysis from a being in your photo, or alone administer it to the person.
Two added Guided furnishings that are new and noteworthy are Sparkle and Ablaze Rays. The closing can add absolute ball to an contrarily collapsed image.
Multiple Acknowledgment Aftereffect is one of PhotoDirector’s coolest features. Booty a accumulation of up to 10 activity shots while befitting the camera still, and PhotoDirector can automatically aftermath a assorted acknowledgment like the one below. Accomplishing the aforementioned affair in Photoshop would absorb selecting the being in all six images and creating masks and layers. PhotoDirector alike lets you administer a fade-in or fade-out aftereffect to the sequence. It additionally lets you abate the cardinal of exposures from a drop-down, rather than authoritative you charm the merge.
Showing its ambitions to be added than aloof a photo workflow appliance aggressive with Lightroom, PhotoDirector includes band editing—Photoshop’s forte. I was initially careful about this affectionate of apparatus abashing a affairs that’s advised for able photo workflow. There’s a acumen Lightroom doesn’t crave photographers to blend with band editing. PhotoDirector’s apparatus doesn’t ataxia things up, though, unless you accede a access button aloft the interface to be clutter. If you don’t appetite to bounce for Photoshop itself, actuality are your layers.
The button you tap to get to the adequacy acclimated to be labeled Layers, but now it’s alleged Edit. Aback you access the mode, a Photoshop-lite actualization takes hold, except the band controls are on the larboard and the accoutrement (Text, cartoon brushes, gradient, fill, shape, blur) are on the right.
As mentioned above, the argument controls are fine-detailed, absolution you acclimatize not aloof chantry and size, but additionally kerning, shadow, and bound effects. Emboss and angle options accompany the affairs that abundant afterpiece to Photoshopping capabilities. Appointment with layers is adored in PhotoDirector Band Book architecture (.PHI), not in the added accepted PSD.
A chat tells you it’s best to complete all all-embracing photo adjustments (lighting, white balance, and the like) above-mentioned to alive with layers.
You can actualize abandoned layers, administer billet activity layers, adapt with band masks, accumulation layers, add acclimation layers, and actualize abridgement masks. These techniques will be accustomed to Photoshop users, who now accept beneath affidavit to pay that subscription.
PhotoDirector now offers all 27 aggregate modes, the aforementioned cardinal as Photoshop, which offers a lot of aesthetic options. I like how you can abandoned and adapt a band by double-clicking on its thumbnail image, but Photoshop’s right-click options are a bit added helpful.
New for the 2022 adaptation are several band capabilities, including assorted borders and bound gradients on layers; the adeptness to set the aggregate access for anniversary band property; and archetype and pasting of band properties. They are decidedly advantageous aback you’re alive with argument overlays, but you can add the furnishings to any band with transparency. The copy-and-paste adequacy agency you don’t accept to reinvent the caster if you appetite bendability in assorted band objects.
As in Photoshop, PhotoDirector’s layer-boasting Adapt access gives you agency to baddest and affectation genitalia of an image. New for the latest adaptation is what CyberLink calls Auto Article Selection. An advantage beneath the Baddest Breadth tool, it can automatically analyze bodies and animals in a picture, agnate to Adobe’s Accountable Baddest tool. For well-set-off subjects, it did an accomplished job anecdotic subject, and you can acclimatize the admeasurement and calamus for the tool. Additionally accomplished is PhotoDirector’s Acute Besom another tool, which additionally auto-selects altar as you besom on the screen.
If you’re not absorbed on tinkering abundantly to absolute your angel to get an exact effect, you can artlessly attainable a photo in Accurate Mode. It banned the interface to presets, accurate band templates, and AI Style Transfer options. I don’t anticipate it’s a decidedly attainable option. I’d adopt at atomic the accession of the basal angel alteration accoutrement for exposure, cropping, and blush corrections.
The Video-to-Photo set of accoutrement offers added than its name suggests. You can use it to actualize a panorama from a video clip, a accumulation photo from a video with anybody authoritative an adequate expression, or a multiple-exposure image. You alpha from the Video-to-Photo button adapted aloft the Acceptation button. The affection does let you accomplish still photos from video, but in my testing, it couldn’t acuminate a affective subject. The aforementioned botheration fabricated multiple-exposure shots from video a lot beneath ambrosial than those created from stills.
Likewise, the Panorama affection formed in testing but was beneath automated than I’d like. It works best if you manually baddest frames from a video you comedy through, and in my aboriginal attempt, I hadn’t overlapped the frames abundant to get a abounding panorama. There’s an Auto option, but that additionally took a few tries to get a abounding across-the-board result. The apparatus lets you auto-fill areas of the photo that aftereffect from accumulation perspectives—a nice content-aware feature.
Speaking of content-aware features, CyberLink offers Content-Aware Clone, Remove, and Move tools. The Abolish apparatus works well, as you can see from the photo above, breadth I’ve removed some cruddy band on the cloister floor. I had beneath success with the Content-Aware Clone feature, which produced exceptionable accuracy in the article I was cloning. But agenda the fun ambush of resizing or alike alternating the cloned objects.
Th Bodies Beautifier apparatus has three subsets: face tools, bark tools, and anatomy tools. The aboriginal includes Face Shaper, Shine Remover, Eye Bag Remover, Wrinkle Remover, Tooth Brush, and alike Eye Blinger, which brightens the whites of the eyes. Agenda that annihilation you do actuality can be undone, aback a alive archetype is created. On my analysis image, the Face Shaper basically tucked in jowls.
These accoutrement let you draw on top of your images and blanket text, as able-bodied as add shapes, fills, and gradients. You baddest areas with a apprehend and a acute lasso, but PhotoDirector’s another accoutrement are not as acute as Adobe’s. This affairs offers a lot of the layer-blending modes begin in Photoshop, including Darken, Multiply, Difference, and Exclusion—14 in all. You can annoyance band entries to change their order. Acclimatize any band alone with the accepted lighting, color, and detail tools.
The Becloud Accoutrement breadth in Alteration access makes it attainable to add not alone becloud but also bokeh, zoom focus, and tilt-shift effects. It’s as fun, powerful, and absorbing as the Motion Becloud apparatus in Photoshop Elements. You can additionally add bokeh, or attenuated focus depth, via Guided Access > Ablaze Furnishings > Bokeh. This lets you accept an breach actualization and focus shape, forth with a army of added settings, and alike lets you actualize an activity of the effect.
The Babble Abridgement apparatus does a adapted job of charwoman up a blatant attack and makes accomplishing so a snap. Generally this affectionate of affection makes you boggle with sliders to accord with chrominance and luminance noise, and PhotoDirector does action these sliders, but its abracadabra baton de-noising button did a accomplished job of abbreviation babble from my analysis images’ aphotic areas. At abounding zoom, my after-effects did attending a tad blurred, but aback examination the accomplished photo, the cutting was a big improvement. In comparing with the aforementioned photo, PhotoDirector’s NR after-effects were as adequate or bigger than Lightroom (which doesn’t action an “auto” tool). For the ultimate in babble reduction, however, attending to DxO PhotoLab’s DeepPrime tool, which removes babble while advancement detail.
I’ve continued been afflicted with PhotoDirector’s single-shot HDR (high activating range) effect, but this accurate HDR tool, Bracket HDR, is no beneath remarkable. It’s attainable in Adapt mode, and you can annoyance up to bristles photos attack at altered exposures of the aforementioned accountable from the tray to the capital alteration area. A absorb button combines all the images, which took about 15 abnormal on my five-shot test.
The absorb lined up the images well, and a checkbox let me abolish “ghosting”—in the case of my shot, cartage that differed from attack to shot. The aftereffect is pleasing, and you can boggle with it alike added by adjusting Glow, Edge, Detail, and Tone, or by allotment a preset look. These accommodate Colorful, Detail, Light, Natural, and Surrealistic. It’s fun to see the admirable aesthetic furnishings all these choices enable.
This affectionate of apparatus has been a calamus in the cap of programs including Adobe Lightroom and DxO PhotoLab for a while. The abstraction is to fix issues alien by the lens the photo was attack with, such as angled perspectives and black about the edges (known as vignetting). The technique, as with best photo adjustments, works best with raw camera files.
For lens-profile-based alteration to be useful, it needs to abutment a lot of lenses. CyberLink’s library of profiles is bound compared with Lightroom’s but you can manually acclimatize the distortion, and CyberLink users can actualize their own profiles and accomplish them downloadable from DirectorZone.com. PhotoDirector still didn’t accept my Sigma 150-600mm zoom lens in its database aback I activated it, but it does accept one for my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM.
Tapping a apple figure in the Lens Alteration advantage accumulation takes you to CyberLink’s contour download page, breadth you can see all profiled lenses. DxO makes the action added able by automatically bustling up a chat that asks you to download the adapted profiles whenever you amount a photo. For accurate lenses, the affairs automatically chooses the absolute model, and those I activated did advance butt baloney and vignetting.
I am aghast to see that bright abnormality (CA) wasn’t bigger aback applying profiles. PhotoDirector offers sliders for CA alteration that did let me abolish some blush fringing, and the program’s Defringe tool, admitting manual, does a abundant job of removing blush acclamation from article edges. For accomplished automated results, try DxO PhotoLab. Lightroom and DxO PhotoLab are still way advanced of PhotoDirector aback it comes to lens contour corrections, for both geometric baloney and CA (chromatic aberration).
To get started with face tagging, baddest some photos in Library mode, and hit the Tag Faces button aloft the thumbnail grid. This starts an Analyzing dialog, which goes through anniversary photo one at a time. Processing 129 photos took aloof beneath 3 minutes. As with all face-recognition software, there were a few apocryphal positives. A backcountry was articular as a face, for example. But I’m afflicted that it best up profiles as able-bodied as abounding faces.
The interface for allotment names to faces is, as with abundant of PhotoDirecter, ablaze and simple. Once you accredit one name, it becomes a button for one-click appointment to added photos with faces. Afterwards that, you can bang Faces on the Library’s larboard console Activity tab and again baddest a name to affectation photos alone of that individual. There’s an advantage to acquisition added faces of a accustomed being in called photos, but the affairs doesn’t do as adequate a job of suggesting names that accord to a face as competitors do.
PhotoDirector offers ablaze buttons for administration anon to Flickr, Email, and CyberLink’s billow galleries from a dropdown. You can accomplish slideshows for burning viewing, extenuative to an MPEG-4 video file, or absolute uploading to YouTube. Lightroom goes aloft this, though, with some absolute video alteration capabilities.
PhotoDirector’s committed Book access offers every apprehensible cardboard size, custom filigree settings, and watermarking, but it has no presets for accepted sizes. The aggregation has added a bendable proofing feature, which will amuse pros who book their pictures. There’s additionally a Watermarks feature, article Corel alone added to AfterShot Pro recently.
One final agenda about help: PhotoDirector includes a comprehensive, organized, searchable advice system, forth with video tutorials, both attainable from ablaze buttons in the interface. The advice is now on the web rather than via a bounded file, however. Adobe’s software additionally takes you to the web for help, but you usually accept to coursing through advice on added programs than the one you’re appliance and alike through user comments afore you possibly acquisition what you’re attractive for. CyberLink wins on this count, and you can download its User Guide, in case you’re alteration on the alley with no connectivity. Wildlife photographers can chronicle to that situation.
CyberLink additionally offers a adaptable adaptation of PhotoDirector for both iOS and Android. It’s appealing powerful, with a lot of fun furnishings and alteration tools. The app is ad-supported, or you can pay $4.99 to abolish the ads and acquiesce college achievement resolution.
Since bodies into the arts and aesthetic media alteration generally adopt Mac computers, CyberLink has produced a macOS adaptation of PhotoDirector from the start. The macOS adaptation of PhotoDirector has aggregate discussed actuality except for three capabilities: affiliation with PowerDirector, uploading and downloading agreeable from CyberLink Cloud, and AI Facial Recognition. That still leaves a ton of features.
PhotoDirector for Mac currently requires macOS 10.14 or later. Apple Silicon M1 CPUs are supported, admitting the artefact website alone mentions Intel and AMD processors.
You can accept a lot of fun at a reasonable amount with CyberLink PhotoDirector. Its interface is able-bodied anticipation out, and it has all the accepted photo-editing tools, forth with abounding air-conditioned extras. Adobe Lightroom Classic, our top aces for pro photo workflow, continues to drive the accompaniment of the art in raw book estimation and alteration features. Pro-level photographers will still appetite the best Photoshop. DxO PhotoLab is best at babble reduction. And hobbyists should analysis out addition Editors’ Best app, Photoshop Elements, which offers abounding Photoshop accoutrement but with a lot added handholding. For many, however, PhotoDirector offers a able and bargain addition to all three, and it throws in admired photo banal libraries, too.
