Last week, I blogged about how Zoner Photo had gone to the dark side, and went Subscription only with their latest release that had finally included support for layers. I had, prior to that, heartily recommended them as an alternative to the Adobe Creative Cloud model of ‘renting’ software.
Well, there are still alternatives to renting.. one of them is Cyberlink PhotoDirector 8. It’s NOT rental/subscription. There will be a bit of a learning curve as there is when using new software. If you, like I, have a lot of photos, it will take some time to import their folders into PhotoDirector. Not copying them, just importing like other programs do.
The editing is pretty straight forward and clean. And it supports editing in layers.
I have only just installed the latest version, and am in the process of importing folders. I will take it through its paces after the import, and see just what it can do. 🙂
