Photo Director 4 Review

I have to admit most of my photo editing is done online with free applications, I do have access to my Dad’s computer during the day while he’s at work if I want to use the programmes he has but at home of course that just isn’t possible. I shall admit now I’m by no means an expert at using any photographic programme but I do like to have a good mess about and see what they do. So when I got my mitts on Photo Director 4 I was really interested to see what it was like.

The first thing I realised about this programme was just how simple it is too use, everything is laid out for you in a really easy to follow setting, within in minutes I could work out how to remove objects from pictures, whiten teeth, remove wrinkles, make myself thin (first for everything right), change colours and make collages. In fact there is so much you can do with this I couldn’t go through it all with you I can really only start to touch the surface.

One of the things I really like about this programme is the ability to see your original ‘before’ picture next to one with all your changes in, if your changing a full picture you can even split it allowing you to see a half and half visual of them both – allowing you to easily make the decision of ‘does this really look better’.

I was messing around last night using some of the pre-set PC pictures (you know the ones that come on your computer when you get them) and if you look at the photo below you can see where I have removed the sandals on the beach picture, the option to remove them is inbuilt into the programme, all you need to do (as with most of the pre-set options) is select the area you want to remove the object from and tap go then wait and bingo it’s all done for you. I did find in some cases you do need to run it a couple of times over the area in question to fully get rid of the original image and replace it with the background but the finished product in only a few minutes is amazing. You can of course do this by hand using the programme as well – choosing the area you wish to remove and what you want to replace it with. Meaning there is such scope with this programme for both beginners and the more advanced.

All I can say is if you want a simple to use but far from basic photo editing programme then you really should look into Photo Director it is made to work with both MAC and PC – and costs £63.99 to find out more including its full specifications and everything you can do check out there UK website here.

  17. Zoe G

    Probably the smart patch, I have lots of pictures that have unwanted people or things on, but all the features are amazing, especially the body shaper, I could have airbrushed pics like the celebs

  18. Lamb

    I’d love to use the lighting adjustment features as my measly set up for my blog provides rubbish lighting and i currently use an app on my phone to edit all my pictures!

  19. colette smith

    the editing tools look top notch

  20. Lisa Day

    Content-Aware Removal
    Remove unwanted objects from photos automatically while allowing the program to intelligently fill in the background area. The powerful line tool also helps users easily remove unwanted wire lines in your photos.
    This would be the most handy feature for me as it takes ages usually to remove unwanted objects from a photo.I have so many photos where i’d like to remove an unwanted object.

  21. Rebecca Jayne Smith

  29. Cyndi Johnson

    The editing controls, a lot of my pics are nice but they really have an unprofessional look to them because I don’t know how to use all my camera features well, at least this would help to touch them up a bit.

  56. Isabelle Smith

    beautifier !!!!!!!!! :)

  57. Charlene

    I love the fact that I can adjust photos in a non-destructive environment, all edits to your photos are applied as simulations on the screen and are only applied as you output photos to final productions. This allows you to experiment the artistic effects with your photos fearlessly while your original images are kept untouched in the course of editing.

  58. Alison

    Light adjustment, my photos always look dark and gloomy

  59. Sue Bowden

    I’d love to remove objects from pictures, whiten teeth, remove wrinkles and make myself look slimmer, I’ve taken some horrible pictures in my time and I’d love to be able to muck around with them to make them look good.

  60. sarah clegg

    the Advanced Editing Controls i love to put my own touches to my piccys xx

  61. Lotte

    The adjustment tools x

  62. Celia West

  63. DENISE WILDEN

    Photo editing lots of things to have fun with thank you

  64. sweir1@talk21.com

    the eye blinger

  65. Jamie

    I think the White balance would be the most useful :)

  66. Maria jane Knight

    I’am a photograph nut, its a hobby that in time i’am hoping to turn into a career. I would certainly make use out of the Skin Smoother on the advanced editing – babies are often quite red skinned, so creating that creamy baby skin effect would be perfect for photoshoots.

  67. Wendy Tolhurst

    The non-destructive editing tool – I’ve lost count of the number of times I have messed up an original by trying to “improve” it!

  68. Joanne

    The beautifier would be great to use.

  69. DAWN TOTTON

    The beautifier would be fab…

  70. Alisa Moore

    Non-Destructive Editing

  71. stephanie mccafferty

    Would b great to win :)

  72. Charlotte Rawles

    As a photographer, i’d love to win this!

  73. The Brick Castle

    Noise reduction – I didn’t even know I needed it until I just read the specs!

  74. Hannah Whitling

    The Beautifier looks like it would come in great use to improve photos.

  75. Tobie

    Lots of nice tools – difficult choice. I guess the Comprehensive Frame and Watermark Tools would be most handy as they are not found in many photo editors.
