3.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly Close to Excellent, Frustrating overall February 18, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I first noticed Cyberlink PhotoDirector 4, I was hopeful that Cyberlink had produced the first must have photo editor since the advent of JASC Paintshop Pro 8.

In some ways Cyberlink Photodirector is a great program and in some ways it is a frustrating program to use.

Why frustrating?

PhotoDirector is very good for making adjustments to photos (white balance, tone, HDR, Clarity, Vibrance etc..)

Where PhotoDirector is weak is in the editing department.

PhotoDirector is missing a true clone tool. This is a major oversight. Cyberlink essentially copied Adobe Lightroom tools. However, If Cyberlink wants to win business they have to be clearly superior to the current leader. Currently, PhotoDirector is not. A true clone tool with selectable brush styles, angles and sizes would be a good start.

The need to import photos is a pain, I already have my folder structure established. I don't know why the latest photo programs insist that they also manage your photos. None of them come close to the free Google Picasa for this task.

Finally, Photodirector prompts you to save every time you switch from the Editing Tab to the Adjustment Tab. Why? Instead remind me to save when I am finished editing and and ready to move to another photo.


Cyberlink is a good company with a history of improving their products. I am hopeful they will fix these issues and produce and must have product.

What is a must have product?

A photo editor that combines a mixture between the adjustment features of PhotoDirector 4 or Adobe Lightroom with the photo editing abilities of PaintShop Pro or Adobe Photoshop elements. Clients have been clamoring for a program like this for years. Come on Cyberlink, make it happen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great program - beginners to advanced will enjoy! December 3, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This demo was a just in time program. My youngest daughter was in a ballet recital but a few days before the recital she fell and cut open her head. That left a nasty wound that the ballet instructor asked us to cover with a minimal band aid. Needless to say, we could not find a band aid so we tried to brush her hair to the side to cover. It worked a little but in all the pictures this larger than life cut showed up very prominent.

It just so happened that the software arrived the day before so I loaded it onto my MacBook Pro and without reading through the instructions started playing with the program to see what it could do. It was very easy to load and I was up and running in about 10 minutes after registering. I loaded in my pictures and began to work with them, consulting the 114 page user's guide as I was going through the pictures.

After two bad starts I figured out which aspect of the program fixed images and wiped away blemishes and such. In about 5 minutes I had figured out how to remove the wound from the image and place exact skin tone right over the spot. I touched it up with a brush feature and then went about brightening their eyes and whitening their teeth, both of which were very easy to figure out without using the guide.

The final product was fantastic and my wife an I can't be more pleased and out daughter loved looking at her image without the cut. For a program to load, be up and running and finish in less than 30 minutes is wonderful. The smart patch is what I used along with the eye fix and teeth whitening. I then spent some time going over other aspects of the program, such as body shaping, coloration, sharpening and blending and have to say I am very, very impressed with this software.

It will certainly be my go to software of r my pictures when I need to edit, fill in, remove or clean up something taken digitally. I highly recommend this software!

4.0 out of 5 stars Super easy program to use November 25, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was very excited to have a chance to try this software; I've been using photo manipulating software that's at least ten years old and this promised to do new, exciting things. I found that some aspects of it were great, others I was disappointed with.

On the up side, the interface is very easy to use. Every button has a label (you have to hover to see it) and each process has instructions right there on the screen, no need to keep `help' open. This is great, because the program is set up very differently from PhotoImpact or PhotoShop. It has a set of tools exclusively for shots of people- which is probably the most popular use of photo programs. It has the usual red eye, but also a tooth whitener, a wrinkle remover & skin smoother, and an `eye blinger' (Really? Really? That's the best name you could come up with?) that brightens the whites of eyeballs and darkens lashes. It has a one step tool for making a photo black & white, sepia or color tinted. What I love about this tool is that you can then take a brush and brush items back into their original colors without having to make a mask. This can create some dynamite flower and jewelry photos! The program also contains a tool for removing unwanted items from photos easily- you draw around the object, then drag it over to a section you'd like to replace it with. The place you put it duplicates over the unwanted object. I do a lot of photos of plants and flowers for articles, and there always seems to be an electric line, weed, old step ladder or something in the photo and this is much easier for dealing with that than PhotoImpact is. Despite having these super easy tools, it also has ones that are a little more `pro', like histogram, masks, white balance, HSL/color etc.
