CyberLink has launched PhotoDirector 365, a new Windows program that is effectively a subscription version of the company's PhotoDirector Ultra image editing software. The new option provides customers with unlimited access to the software's premium add-ons, new style packs that are released quarterly, templates, and all new feature updates as they become available.

PhotoDirector 365 includes the new features found in PhotoDirector 10 Ultra, including AI Style Effects and tethered shooting. Other PhotoDirector tools, such as Layer Packs, Keystone Correction, and HDR, are also available. With the addition of all the add-ons, CyberLink says PhotoDirector 365 subscribers get access to "hundreds of dollars' worth of unique tools" over time.

Whereas PhotoDirector 10 costs $99.99 USD for new customers to purchase, PhotoDirector 365 is available with a monthly cost of $14.99 USD, a quarterly cost of $29.99, or an annual cost of $54.99, depending on which plan the customer signs up for. PhotoDirector 365 joins CyberLink's Director Suite 365, which bundles PhotoDirector with three of the company's other software products for an annual cost of $129.99 USD.
