Cyberlink PhotoDirector 7 Ultra - Instant Download for Windows (1 Computer)
When choosing between this and Photoshop & Lightroom it was real close, but ultimately not having to pay a subscription fee pushed me over to Cyberlink PhotoDirector. It has many of the same feat as Adobe, and I've found it fairly intuitive. Plus paying less than $50 for it made it a steal.
this program can do so much and I still have a lot to learn
Kind of steep learning curve, but does virtually everything to replace Picasa and more
Love this.It's easy to use and make my photos so much nicer.
hard to understand but good program
An intuitive and versatile photo editing application, PhotoDirector 7 Ultra from CyberLink is an all-encompassing program designed for retouching, adjusting, and sharing photographs. Enabling the ability to work in a non-destructive manner, layers-based editing is possible for producing creative composites or multi-step edits without affecting the original image. A series of both local and global editing tools lets you refine the look of photographs, including the basics like RGB curves and a series of one-click presets up to more creative features like Bracket HDR and gradient mask. Aesthetic blurs can be applied to imagery in a controlled manner or, conversely, lens corrections can also be applied to remove distortions and aberrations based on the lens in use. Portraits are benefitted by an array of dedicated retouching and content-aware removal tools and multiple image composites can also be produced using the Panorama and Creative Compositions modes.
In addition to the editing capabilities, PhotoDirector 7 Ultra also features a robust infrastructure that is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems, including 64-bit versions. Integrated cloud storage lets you seamlessly backup your work and partner mobile app lets you continue your editing on-the-go. Rounding out the rich set of features is extensive compatibility with most digital cameras, and their respective raw image file formats. Designed for photographers looking for a seamless solution for all aspects of digital post-production, PhotoDirector 7 Ultra helps to increase efficiency while offering extensive creative control for adjusting your photographs.
- Bracket HDR: Up to five bracketed frames can be automatically merged together to form a single high dynamic range (HDR) image that contains greater highlight and shadow detail, along with an extended range of mid-tones. Additionally, automatic alignment and ghost artifact removal technologies help to produce realistic results.
- Radial Filter: Helping to draw attention to a specific portion of your image, the radial filter helps to emphasize light sources, highlight subjects, or apply creative vignettes.
- Noise Reduction: Benefitting images made at high ISO settings, and particularly those made in low-light conditions, this noise reduction tool helps to eliminate unwanted artifacts for greater clarity.
- RGB Curves: Individual RGB channels can be adjusted for refined control over color, contrast, and tone, or for producing creative colored effects.
- Gradient Mask: Various gradient masking techniques allow you to produce creative tilt-shift effects to produce a "miniature" look.
- One-Click Presets: A range of dedicated photo presets can be used to quickly adjust the look of your imagery, and include creative styles such as HDR or Lomo.
- Linear, circular, and brush tools can be used to apply differently shaped blur effects to images to better suit a range of compositions.
- Four pre-defined shapes let you mimic the look of shallow depth of field imagery and adjust the amount and quality of bokeh in the photo.
- Zoom and motion effects can be added using the radial and focal zoom blur functions.
- The EXIF data from your files can be used to instantly and accurately correct for a variety of lens flaws. Support is available for current camera and lens combinations, as well as the ability to work with various raw image file formats.
- More than 100 supported lens profiles are pre-loaded, with additional profiles available at DirectorZone.
- Lens corrections help to alleviate the unwanted effects of barrel distortion, vignetting, and chromatic aberrations. Keystoning or converging lines can also be adjusted.
