PhotoDirector 8 Essentials is a cut-down free version of CyberLink's powerful photo editor, PhotoDirector Ultra.

It really is cut-down, too. Here's the official list of all the Ultra features which Essentials leaves out:

  • Face tagging
  • Photo stacking
  • Editable Exif - Capture date
  • Spot Removal
  • Brush
  • Selection Brush
  • Gradient Mask
  • Radial Filter
  • HDR effects
  • RGB Curves
  • Split Toning
  • Levels
  • Auto Denoise
  • Lens correction
  • Edit Tools
  • Layer Editing

Fortunately there's still quite a lot left: a solid organiser, slideshow creator, a capable viewer and a useful set of general image adjustment tools (even if you can't remove background objects, there are all the usual adjustments for colour, brightness, contrast and more).

Verdict:

CyberLink PhotoDirector Essentials leaves out all the most interesting and powerful editing tools, but if you just need an organiser with basic image adjustments then it works well enough.
