CyberLink has released PhotoDirector 10, the newest version of its PhotoDirector image editing and design software. The latest installment brings a number of new features, including tethered shooting and an AI Style Engine. CyberLink has also made a number of improvements to layer editing.

PhotoDirector 10 brings users workflow improvements, according to CyberLink, that are designed for "advanced photographers." The inclusion of tethered shooting enables users to directly connect a camera to their PC, shoot images, and instantly preview them on the computer.

The newest upgrade also brings Soft Proofing for previewing a printer's tone and color rendering, as well as improvements to layer editing. The latter change includes the ability to add empty layers to projects, use clipping masks, and group layers together.

Other features include the addition of integrated Express Layer Templates, additional template packs that can be purchased through CyberLink Store, AI Style Packs that use deep learning to be "more than just photo filters," one-clicked keystone correction, advanced layer text editing, adjustment layers, and content-aware editing for moving, removing, and copying image elements.

PhotoDirector 10 is available now from CyberLink's website for $99.99 USD for new customers, or starting at $69.99 USD as an upgrade for existing customers.
