CyberLink PhotoDirector 3
Polish and correct your digital photos with this powerful yet easy-to-use editor

CyberLink PhotoDirector 3 is a new release of the company's image editor and organiser, which introduces some high-end editing features while maintaining its general ease of use.

One headline addition this time around is a new object removal system. If your shot is being spoiled by an unwanted person, tree or other inconvenient object, then PhotoDirector 3 now gives you at least a chance of removing this, just by drawing around the object and choosing a replacement background area. This doesn't always work, but it's quick and easy to try and is a useful inclusion to the package.

The family and friends you choose to leave in the image can now look much better, too, courtesy of PhotoDirector 3's "People Beautifier". A "Wrinkle Remover" works much like the object remover (draw around the unwanted lines, and get rid of them); the Skin Smoother provides a smoothing brush to reduce skin imperfections; an Eye Blinger brightens the eyes to impressive effect, while the Tooth Brush enables you to paint on a whiter smile in seconds.

A handy Watermark editor allows you to create watermark templates with your own choice of lines, frames, pictures, images, even data taken from a few of the image tags (Copyright, Date, Camera Name, Aperture, Focal Length, ISO, Shutter speed). These templates can then be applied to as many photos as you need, so if you'd like an entire folder full of images to have your name and their date added, then you can do it here in just a click or two.

And a new Lens Correction section can help you compensate for fisheye distortion, vignetting and other problems. This isn't as sophisticated as the high-end competition (there are no presets for particular cameras, for instance). It's not exactly easy to find (click Adjustment, then scroll down in the left-hand panel until you get to the very bottom of that section). And even once you've got there, this is one of the more difficult sections to understand (not everyone will understand the important of vertical and horizontal "keystone"). In operation it's just a matter of moving sliders backwards and forwards, though, so even if you don't understand the technicalities you'll soon figure out what the controls do, and again these are a positive addition to the program.

And elsewhere, of course, are the excellent features which PhotoDirector made available last time. The powerful image library, comprehensive photo adjustment tools, slideshow creator and much more.

Verdict:

PhotoDirector 3 adds some powerful new editing and retouching tools, yet for the most part remains easy enough for anyone to use. Well worth a look.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
