Using powerful tools such as native RAW conversion for Canon and Nikon cameras, regional adjustments and non-destructive editing, PhotoDirector should be able to speed up your time sat in front of a computer to allow more time to get out and take pictures. After all, that's what photography is all about. Cyberlink PhotoDirector costs around &pound;80 / $100 for the 2011 edition."</em></p><p><img height="356" src="http://www.photographyblog.com/images/sized/images/uploads/cyberlink_photodirector_review-275x356.jpg" width="275" /></p><p>We have <a href="http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/f314/cyberlink-offers-photodirector-2011-beta-special-110940.html" target="_blank">highlighted Cyberlinke's PhotoDirector</a>&nbsp;previously, and here is a review on it. I personally love that Cyberlink took the trouble to implement Nikon and Canon's SDK, giving me the right colours from my Nikon DSLRs. Adobe Camera RAW is such a mess in that regard. I just wish it would handle larger libraries better; it does not like my current library of just 10,000 photos very much. Still, at US$100, it is a great alternative to Adobe's Lightroom, which costs quite a bit more than that!</p>

I tried out the beta and got a full version, but I haven't used it as much as I thought mainly due to that I couldn't find any option to change the default directory to be where my images are. Might be a case of RTFM, but I couldn't figure it out and that made it a awkward to use...
