Pho­toDirec­tor 7 helps you stream­line your work­flow and edit im­ages in a non-de­struc­tive way. You can use it to as­sign flags, rat­ings and la­bels to your pho­tos and then use cus­tom fil­ters to search for pho­tos that meet spe­cific cri­te­ria. There’s also a unique fil­ter that lets you search for pho­tos that have been ad­justed or not, which helps you eas­ily find files that might need pro­cess­ing to look their best. This is an ex­am­ple of how Pho­toDirec­tor 7 goes the ex­tra mile to help you take con­trol of your ever-grow­ing photo col­lec­tion.

Pho­toDirec­tor’s Edit mod­ule lets you ac­cess more ad­vanced re­touch­ing tools, such as the Con­tent Aware tool for re­mov­ing un­wanted ob­jects. You can change the mood of pho­tos with colour fil­ter ef­fects, or fake bokeh us­ing Blur tools. You can also use the edit­ing tools to com­bine brack­eted ex­po­sures and cre­ate an HDR com­pos­ite, or stitch a se­ries of panned shots into a panorama.

There’s also a new col­lec­tion of Por­trait Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion tools de­signed to help you get your por­trait sub­jects look­ing their best by re­mov­ing their eye bags and shiny hot spots. Read on to find out what else is new...
