Newly released photo editing app enables users to intuitively apply one-touch, creative enhancements to personalize their photo collection

Taipei, Taiwan - June 5, 2013 - CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a provider of innovative media creation solutions, today launched PhotoDirector Mobile - an easy-to-use, yet powerful photo editing application for touch-enabled Windows® 8 tablets. Building on the success of CyberLink's popular PhotoDirector photo editing software for PC and Mac, PhotoDirector Mobile was developed to provide users with the convenience of comprehensive photo editing on the go.

A robust solution, PhotoDirector Mobile provides users with more functionality than the standard photo editing features usually available on mobile devices. The application comes with innovative tools such as magic content-aware removal, instant presets with time-saving batch editing, portrait beautifying tools and HDR effects for stylizing scenes. All these features and more are included along with the basic tools users will expect, such as tone adjustments, cropping and orienting, and quick sharing options to upload photos to Facebook and Flickr.

"Our PhotoDirector desktop version, which recently received over 150,000 downloads in 48 hours, continues to be very popular with our users," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "With the rapid emergence of the mobile digital landscape, however, PhotoDirector Mobile now brings many of the same features and intuitive functionality to Windows 8 Modern UI. Users can edit and share their photos at any time without the need for a keyboard or mouse. Furthermore, PhotoDirector desktop users will now have a convenient on-the-go editing companion."

PhotoDirector Mobile also delivers additional features for photography enthusiasts and advanced users, including RAW image format support, selective color tuning and a touch finder window to precisely track finger movements, all operating within a non-destructive editing environment. Personalization options will also soon be available to users through a free update that will include many options for photo collages, a large selection of photo frames and customizable text bubbles.

PhotoDirector Mobile is available now on the Windows Store.
