TAIPEI, Taiwan -- June 13, 2013

With Father’s Day in North America fast approaching, photo and video
enthusiasts are preparing to capture hours of video footage and thousands of
images to preserve their family’s special moments. To help them create and
share the highest quality photos and videos on June 16^th, CyberLink—a
provider of innovative media creation solutions—today unveiled a list of
useful editing tips. Based on frequently asked questions from the company’s
social media channels and the three million members in the DirectorZone video
editing community, CyberLink has compiled easy and effective ways for
photographers and videographers of all levels to make their personal photos
and videos more impressive and polished without having to pay for professional
enhancement.

“Today, everyone can take and share professional-quality photos and videos
that dazzle friends and family—this is no longer just the domain of
professionals and those who can afford expensive third-party services,” said
Alice Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “With our easy-to-use, affordable software,
consumers of all levels can create the most impressive photos and videos all
by themselves without spending hundreds or thousands of dollars.”

As people gather for Father’s Day cookouts, pool parties and beach
celebrations, they will be eager to capture and share fun and special moments
with others. To make the best summertime moments shine as brightly as
possible, follow these five tips to make photos and videos look their very
best:

   Tip 1: The right lighting makes all the difference
      Whether you’re taking photos or video, there’s perhaps nothing more
      crucial to achieving a great shot than good lighting. Fortunately, with
      CyberLink software there’s now a way to salvage poorly lit, but
      otherwise good shots. For a quick fix, both PhotoDirector (for photos)
      and ColorDirector (for videos) provide a White Balance dropper that can
      instantly remove color casts from shots, along with exposure and
      contrast sliders to repair under/overexposed areas and achieve the exact
      look and feel you want.
      
      Tip 2: Give Dad the gift of youth
      Each year that we celebrate Father’s Day we look that little bit older.
      Why not turn back the clock by using the innovative wrinkle remover and
      skin smoother functions found in PhotoDirector? An easy-to-apply brush
      tool quickly smoothes away wrinkles and evens out skin tones to leave
      your photo subjects with a realistic looking youthful appearance.
      
      Tip 3: Shape up for summer without diet or exercise
      We all like to look our best in photos, and with the unique Body Shaper
      feature in PhotoDirector, now we can. The Body Shaper is able to reshape
      and contour torsos, limbs and faces with a selection of four intuitive
      distortion tools that can taper and enhance the right areas to achieve
      flawless, professional-looking portraits.
      
      Tip 4: Eliminate that hard-to-watch video shake
      Most people don’t use a camera stand when shooting videos and, as a
      result, the final videos often contain shaky footage, creating a
      distracting viewing experience. PowerDirector’s one-click TrueTheater
      Stabilizer feature automatically eliminates the shaky effect creating
      smooth, flowing scenes—perfect for action shots in the car or cycling.
      
      Tip 5: Use presets to set the mood
      One of the most frequent complaints from consumers is that their photos
      and videos all look the same and seem dull in comparison to
      professional-quality counterparts. Both PhotoDirector and ColorDirector
      contain built-in presets that can be applied to photos and videos with
      one click to give a unique look, establish a specific mood or to emulate
      film-styles. Hundreds more presets are available for free download from
      DirectorZone.com.

CyberLink’s popular PhotoDirector (photo editing), PowerDirector (video
editing) and ColorDirector (color grading) software—used by millions of
consumers worldwide—regularly earn the highest five-star ratings from the most
respected media outlets that review consumer media software products including
PC Magazine, Popular Photography, Videographer and C/NET amongst many others.
