    Photo Director 5 is Still (Only Just) Available Free

    You have 7 hours 30 mins to get this at time of this post.

    I don't know anything about it, but I installed it today to try it out.
    Version 6 has just been released, and so they're giving V5 away
    But you do have to register it, and for that they want your name and email address.

    No Mac version.

    But given the feedback on the web site, It will be interesting to get your thoughts Am.
    Cheers

    You don't have to be dead to be a donor.

    Education is what remains after that which has been learnt, has been forgotten.

    I was sure I saw a version for Mac, Granville. (??? Unless I was seeing things???)...

    So I went and had another look and, alas! it looks like only V6 is available in Mac

    Update on Photo Director 5:

    I found it cumbersome, and worse, it had basic edit features missing, like Levels and a couple of others.
    You could get these by "updating" to the fuller version of 5. The "free" one was a cut down version.

    Well, that didn't do much for my interest in V6, either.

    Shortly ago I removed the program from the 2 computers I had installed it on, and on one I installed the latest GIMP.

    So, PD 5 - a lot of palaver!!

    I started off with Ulead photo express 2 which came with my first scanner, upgraded to v3 which came with a video camera and I still use this for some things, mainly adding text as it is very simple. After getting my first DSLR a 400D twin lens kit I got Photoshop Elements 5 and after upgrading to the 7D I upgraded to Elements 10, it does everything I need and was fairly simple to learn. I have never seen the need to go to the full version of Photoshop as I still only use a small part of elements capability anyway.
