I downloaded the trial of Photo Director 4. What an interesting piece of software. Quite robust, smooth, and lots of options. Sliders move fluently and are very effective. I plan on spending some time with this. Will give further impressions later. I can say though that I am initially quite impressed.

I too have been looking at it but I did not see any layers functionality and I have not been able to find any real shadows lifting functionality. I have seen brightening controls, but nothing that would allow me to specifically lift shadows.

The noise reduction functionality seemed OK and I liked the distortion functionality, but it is not clear to me that the adjustments are non-destructive in the sense that I could step back a couple of adjustment steps.

Still looking at it, but what it does have seems to work well.
