Adds enhanced workflow tools Tethered Shooting and Soft Proofing, coupled with vast Layer Editing improvements and new AI Style Packs for users of all skill levels
Taipei, Taiwan—September 19, 2018 — CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the world's leading consumer multimedia software company, today launched the latest version of its leading photo editing and design software, PhotoDirector 10. The new PhotoDirector presents users of all levels with a host of tools to turn regular photos into stunning works of art. Professional-grade features such as Tethered Shooting and Soft Proofing have been introduced, alongside a new AI Style Engine and additional Style Packs to revolutionize the creative process.
PhotoDirector 10 delivers a host of improvements to layer editing, allowing more experienced editors greater creative flexibility while making this advanced technique easy to harness for novice users. The introduction of clipping masks, layer grouping and the ability to add new empty layers to projects opens a world of creative possibilities for users to explore. A range of stylish new Express Layer Templates are also available to users looking for quick creative solutions.
PhotoDirector 10 also includes a collection of built-in Express Layer Templates. In addition to these templates included with the software, more packs will be added for purchase through the CyberLink Store. Four Packs will be available at the time of launch including Lines and Shapes, Galaxy, Teenage, and Comic.
CyberLink's leadership in AI editing now extends to photos with the inclusion of the revolutionary AI Style Plugin and Packs for PhotoDirector. Introduced to CyberLink's PowerDirector earlier this year, the new AI Style Packs are more than just photo filters. While regular filters simply overlay a generic style on top of an image, CyberLink's AI Style Plugin uses deep learning to produce work demonstrating a much greater understanding of the thought processes behind how human artists create their masterpieces – right down to brush strokes and color tones.
"PhotoDirector has always aimed to demystify photo editing so that anyone, regardless of their skill level, can create amazing art from any shot," said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. "While we have included some more advanced editing and capture features in this latest version of PhotoDirector, we've held true to our mantra of making the seemingly complex rather straightforward."
PhotoDirector 10 also brings new workflow improvements for more advanced photographers. Tethered Shooting provides a means for those who need to instantly proof and edit their photos. Whether they are shooting in a studio or working on a timelapse in the field, by connecting their camera to their PC, photographers can shoot and immediately preview their shots all from within PhotoDirector. The addition of Soft Proofing enables those looking to print their work to preview the specific printer’s color and tone rendering and make any adjustment before creating the physical print.
