    "Cumbersome"

    June 30, 2011  |   By JCook236

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    Does a few cool things (if you can figure them out and find the right tools). Good for someone with expericence and not your average user.

    Cons

    File size is large and uses large portion of resources.
    Have to import folders/photos. Rather have it like file manager. With over 300 folders with 2.4 gb of photos would take a long time to import them all. Tools are scattered all over the page.

    Summary

    Uses too much hard drive space (program + duplicate folders and photos) and uses too much resources. Just seemed combersome.

    Cons

    don't have any

    If you are a home or small business user, this is a gem

    "Really Good and not overly complicated photo optimizer."

    June 29, 2011  |   By Attu012

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    A lot of great photo adjustment features.. Easy to share photos on-line. Non Destructive editing of your photos. Easy install and great price.

    Cons

    Created copies of all my photos when I imported them,? Maybe I need to tweak settings.

    Summary

    This is a great alternative to Lightroom.

    "A valuable and useful competitor to Lightroom"

    June 29, 2011  |   By AjWasHere

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    Slick, efficient interface
    Integrated slideshow features
    RAW image import
    Many useful adjustment options

    Cons

    Somewhat limited toolset
    Features sometimes feel "dumbed down"
    Cyberlink also produces the crapware that HP preloads

    Summary

    It's important not to compare this to PhotoShop, of which it is not a competitor. It is a competitor for Lightroom, a photo import and adjustment tool-and it does that job well.

    "VERY USER FRIENDLY AND INSTALLED IMMEDIATELY"

    June 29, 2011  |   By jamesgreen53

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    Installed immediatey on my Windows 7 system.
    Opens up and ready to use in 7 seconds - slow?, don't think so.
    I use various photosuites but still consider myself to be a novice.
    I want something that is easy and straightforward to use - this is it.

    Cons

    Cannot really think of anything.

    Summary

    This is my first ever review of any product and would recommend anyone to give it a try - particularly if you are new to photo editing.

    "Lots of fun and has all the tools I need"

    June 29, 2011  |   By tylersander

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    I really like how easy it is to use and the editing tools and really advanced. DirectorZone is also a great resource for presets.

    Cons

    Great first effort and just need a few more additions in future versions

    Summary

    A really good product and a great value compared to other products in the market.

    "Great app though not in a professional line"

    June 29, 2011  |   By ossian1961

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    Very good real-time photo adjustment (colors, tones, white balance and real black handling ect. Quite close to Aperture features control though not that expensive software. Excellent for people who starting to handle digital photos.

    Cons

    Library import of photos not fast to syncro new entry photos, but I think it could be fixed in next realese :)

    Summary

    I think Cyberlink could make more about Photo Director because there are some open source softwares that are quite powerful for free. Anyway the company has the chances to develope next realeses more powerful and more professional! :)

    "Well made and very easy to use"

    June 29, 2011  |   By Trelfaery

    Version: PhotoDirector 2011

    Pros

    Full features, and many options within those features. I have used a lot of programs, and this one is a favorite.

    Cons

    It's not made for power user pro's, but it's also not $1400.00

    Summary

    If you are a home or small business user, this is a gem, even a pro will find it usefull in many ways. If your looking to replace one of the big 3 with it,because they are not giving you what you need, don't. If your looking for an easier to use program, this one is a must.
