Review: Cyberlink PhotoDirector 10, a powerful photo editor

More than a decade since the first version was introduced, PhotoDirector 10 gains features as tethered shooting or complex layers in a package that can also solve your photo indexing problems.

If you said Photoshop, Lightroom, ON1 Photo RAW, Affinity Photo or Luminar you’re probably right, but you left out many other names that also offer similar features. In fact, we tend to keep to the same names, over and over, and forget that the market has more options to choose from.

A short while ago I had the great pleasure of taking the stage at the Seattle Interactive Conference with my dear friend and creative superstar Cal Mcallister (Founder, Wexley School for Girls + Paper Crane Factory) for a very pointed conversation on inspiration, unlocking your best creative work, and how the eff to stand out in today’s noisy, crowded market.  Hint:  it’s not what you think. IMHO this conversation oozes with value specifically because both Cal and I are:   a) lifelong professional creators who care deeply about making this easier for people who want to be more creative; b) Continue reading “Creative Cockroaches, Standing Out + the Truth About Your Best Creative Work”

This city flythrough was created entirely using After Effects, with the final composition involving over 18,000 layers.  I made this almost 7 years ago, at the start of 2012, and it was all created in After Effects CS5 running on a 2009 MacPro.  Just to clarify – there is no 3D here, only After Effects.  And today we’re looking at how – and why – I put it all together. Even in 2012, when I was making it I knew it was an unusual project, and I’ve been planning to talk about it for some time.
