"Cyberlink PhotoDirector is a stand alone photographic work flow tool designed to make editing and storing pictures a lot easier. 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 £80 / $100 for the 2011 edition."
We have highlighted Cyberlinke's PhotoDirector 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!
