CyberLink PhotoDirector for Mac lets you import photos stored on your computer, edit them, and organize them into albums. You can also rate your photos (from one to five stars), which makes it easy to browse photos for printing or uploading to social media.
At around 228MB, CyberLink PhotoDirector takes a while to download. Nevertheless, the program installs quickly and opens up to a professional-looking interface. All image folders are easily accessible through the drop-down menu on the left side of the app.
PhotoDirector runs efficiently and edits images quickly. You can tag faces on photos, so you can easily locate a photo with a specific person in it. The slideshow feature lets you drag and drop photos, arrange them, add music, add titles, and upload your slideshow to social media. Uploading to social media took us about 10 minutes because of authorization needed for the social-media accounts. But once everything was linked, uploading took less than five minutes. Once you've edited photos, you can also arrange them into a collage and print them to make a custom postcard.
If you like to play with your photos and different photo effects, or if you like to make media presentations using still photos, then you will definitely enjoy CyberLink PhotoDirector. It is easy to navigate and gives you all the basic photo-editing features you may need, as well as some advanced tools.
