    Regarding the Window’s version of the setup file, the “Download file 2: (Windows Download Mirror)” link downloads a larger file than the “Download file 1″ link. The file sizes are shown below:
    File Size from Download file 1: 141,859,720 bytes
    File Size from Download file 2: 141,876,896 bytes (Windows Download Mirror)

    The second link’s file has 17,176 more bytes in it than the first links file.

    Also, the two files are named differently as well, as shown below

    File Name from Download file 1: PhotoDirector_4.0.4317.47441_GM5_HE_PTD140217-03.exe
    File Name from Download file 2: PhotoDirector_4.0.4317.47441_GM5_HE_PTD131121-03.exe

    Would someone please explain why there are these differences in the files?

    Thought I would get back to you again and says thanks again for this offer. After you put the mirror link, I had no problems at all. This program offers so much more than what I thought it would be. Now I can remove several other programs regarding picturing editing as this program has all of them including removing objects! I depend so much on your site, so please ignore the bad comments or simply don’t read them! Keep up the good work.

    [@mardel53] I just added a download mirror of the full installer (not the downloader), so hopefully that should work. I’m not sure why CyberLink’s downloader is not working. Try using the download mirror I just added.

    I also will state that I did try to go to the to download the trial of this, but naturally the version 4 is not there only the ultra 5 version. I guess cyberlink needs to be notified as this is not a good giveaway at this time.

    the download link for windows above simply puts a shortcut to same on my desktop. I am getting notifications that the download is not available and to try again later. The link to my desktop was put there after clicking on what was downloaded from your link above. CyBerLinkPhoto\CyberLink_PhotoDirector_Downloader.exe A popup window appears and it gives me a window asking me to save the file that is to be downloaded from cyberlink. After selecting a folder, (which is where I downloaded from your link above) it then states “The Photo Director Trial link is currently unavailable. Please try again later. If this issue persists, please go to and try downloading it again. Then you click on “Ok” and it disappears showing that shortcut link on my desktop that started all of this.
    Thought you would like to know this.

    [@Syl] If the installer is running, that means your download probably isn’t corrupt. Try downloading this, it is the full installer instead of the downloader:

    [@Ashraf is Pathetic] The sad part about your attempts to attack me is the fact that ghudak and I have solved the issue we had. As far as we are concerned, the spat is over and dealt with. Yet you have a need to come here and try to antagonize me. I really don’t give a rat’s ass what you think about me and it is my “hiding behind freedom of speech” that lets you still post comments here.

    As I said, the door is —> day; you can take your racism and hatred elsewhere.

    [@ghudak] Try using a download manager to download — it is a large 135 MB file. If you don’t already have a download manager, see

    [@Nina] Unfortunately, I can’t help with issues with the program itself — that is out of the scope of my knowledge. I’d suggest contacting CyberLink. Sorry!

    Reply to this comment#287OLD COMMENT

    Hi Ashraf, I’ve posted here before once or twice when I’ve had issues with other programs offered here, and you’ve always been very gracious and helpful (and patient!). I’m hoping you’ll be able to suggest something in this instance as well. Here’s my problem: I’ve downloaded PhotoDirector, installed and registered it. So far, so good. However, when I try to import photos or files, I get a cropped Import window that doesn’t allow me to access the Import button, thereby preventing me from working on anything. Frustrating. I suspect that there may be an easy fix to this, as no-one else seems to be encountering the same issue. I’ve checked that my screen resolution is within the parameters accepted by PhotoDirector, so that isn’t the cause. I’m stymied. Any suggestions?
    Thank you in advance, Ashraf. :)

    [@ghudak] No problem, and my apologies for replying in kind.

    If I remember correctly, running as admin can be done by right-clicking or long tapping -> Run as admin. If that still doesn’t work for you, then try downloading the following:

    That is the full installer for PHD4 instead of a downloader; make sure you download it fully and then try installing it (you can use a download manager if you can an unstable internet connection).

    [@mishasin] Welcome!

    [@ghudak] When you send over a check to help pay my bills, I’ll gladly be a slave to your whim. Until then, stop behaving like a stuck-up, entitled asshat — we all have lives, we don’t owe you anything to sit here and provide you with free tech support. If someone helps you, you should be grateful — we don’t have to help you.

    And, by way, when you have a problem, you need to describe it more than “won’t install” if you want assistance. There could be a thousand reasons as to why it won’t install, such as corrupt download, incompatibility, etc.

    [@Bill] It is just part of the giveaway model. The end goals of giveaways are to spur sales, somewhere down the line. Updates/upgrades are often a reason to entice people to pay. Sorry :-(

    [@Suze] [@ken cannaby] Welcome!

    [@Don Smith] Glad you like it!

    [@Neil from Ohio] Picasa is a nice program but it doesn’t compare to PhotoDirector. Nonetheless, thanks for the suggestion :-)

    Reply to this comment#263OLD COMMENT

    I have been using this software since it was offered here at an earlier date. I find it more intuitive and it has a much more appealing interface than Picasa. This is from the point of view of an amateur with a lot of photographs to sort, collate and organize. I still use Picasa for re-sizing and emailing photos. Nice thing about PhotoDirector 4 is that once you have it registered, it can be uninstalled and re-installed at any time (without hassle). Registration was easy and the advertising is not aggressive. It is easy to opt out of mailings as well. thanks to Ashraf and Cyberlink for making it available. Brian


    Reply to this comment#262OLD COMMENT

    [@J Neal] Just an FYI, if it even matters. I’ve had Photo-Director # for over a year & it is a x32, I am running Win 7 PRO x64. I’m pretty sure that x32 is all that CyberLink produces. They do have a Huge Following & a pretty good Users Forum, where you can get a ton of ideas and they actually Trade things they make back’n forth like it was baseball cards! They have tons of contests and a large number of categories where you can compete with one another. Anyway, I just wanted to advise mainly that all aside, the program itself, is a very nice one. No, its no Photoshop, but your not spending $300-$500 either, & it does photos just as well!!…..Thanks again Ashraf “Bossman”

    I’ve had PhotoDirector 4 for awhile, and it’s a pretty good program, with a few flaws IMHO, and a few good things. Hopefully version 5 corrects a lot of the weaknesses. But for the price for version 4, it’s a definite keeper! Unless you want to upgrade to version 5 (please do so via SharewareOnSale), It’s fairly pricy for a home user, but might be worth it.

    Someone mentioned that once again, this giveaway downloads an install downloader rather than the full program. In my opinion, avoid all installer at all costs, I’m not even that crazy about downloaders from Microsoft rather than the full offline downloads. That especially goes for Adobe flash updates as they try to install toolbars and other things.

    I think someone here posted the full download file link before from Cyberlink and this is it:

    There’s also a full download of the program here:

    Hi nice Shareware on Sale team
    Thank you very much for your great efforts to make all those wonderful programs available for free. The most important thing about your giveaways is that, unlike in any other site, the setup file, once downloaded, can be used to install and re-install the software for whatever times the user needs or wishes which means that the program will never be lost even when Windows needs to be re-installed.
    As for today’s giveaway:
    -The downloaded file is not an installer but rather a downloader, something to worry about. However, download speed is very fast, 105 kb/s on a 1 GB ADSL connection, unlike what happens with other programs which use the same way for installation. Moreover, CyberLink respects users well enough to make the downloader gives us the opportunity to chose the location of the downloaded setup files, which means that I can close the downloader after download finishes and install the program manually by myself.
    For other programs installation occurs automatically after download finishes or you will have to chose “Yes” when you are asked whether to install or not because you do not know where the setup file is located and you can’t even do a search to find it because you do not know what its name might be.
    -On a Win 8.1 Pro x64 OS, the program is installed in “C:\Program Files (x86)” not in “C:\Program Files” which means that it can run in both x64 and x32 operating systems. So, neither those using this nor those using that should worry about this or that!
    -The program registered smoothly without any error messages or the like.
    The program itself is wonderful, nice and beautiful skin and interface and the most important thing of them all is that the icon is not smudged with that nasty, irritating, ugly, repulsive, nonsense, useless, depressing, poorly designed shield (blue and yellow) mark that Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 spit on every icon!
    Now, is that a nice comment?
    I wish I could have written a much nicer one that could befit your generosity and hospitality.
    Do not worry though, because there will be, may our God wishes, a plenty of time(s) and I am not going to go anywhere, are you?

  71. Suze

    Reply to this comment#250OLD COMMENT

    Many thanks, Ashraf! I particularly like this: “Can be installed or re-installed whenever you want, as long as you get your license key and download the installer before the offer is over.” In the past, it could only be downloaded & installed before the offer was over . . .

    Open Dialogue to SOS Software Vendors & Developers:
    As a Programmer, I don’t understand why Software Vendors & Developers do not include Updates for their Free Software Offerings. Updates are different than an Upgrade. Updates fix problems with the Code and Functionality of the current version of the software, whereas an Upgrade is a totally new Version which incorporates new features, consolidates all previous updates, and corrects all known errors in the
    software. What if the Update is a Security Update? Who wants broken software? Vendors should always include updates? If you are using and testing the Vendor program, and it does not function properly why would I want to buy an upgrade; especially for a commercial purpose?

    This program is not worth downloading if you want the ability to be able to scan photos from a flatbed scanner because this does NOT have the option to do that, as it can only import files from other folders or from a camera!

    I could proceed normally now too. Unlike yesterday when I got this key error like all other non-US citizen.

    Why is it taken off here, when it is still available on the Cyberlink website?

    Mac Version
    Product key: ULJY4-AS3X6-2VL8L-WAFMJ-Z679X-M4JET
    Windows Version
    Product key: HEVQQ-V39LF-QXYJX-829F5-5JWNG-HAUT7

    Still works.

    Reply to this comment#222OLD COMMENT

    On this Sale page for PhotoDirector 4, the price of the software titled seems to indicate that the version is PhotoDirector Ultra, but the title doesn’t specify that. There is (or was) a PhotoDirector Deluxe 4, which has no price given. The “box” pictured, however, says Ultra. But does the pic refer to version 4 or the upgrade to version 5?

    I found a CyberDirect comparison page that compares four PhotoDirect versions…
    PhotoDirector Suite 5, PhotoDirector Ultra 5, PhotoDirector Suite 4, and PhotoDirector Ultra 4. See:

    According to the page, neither version 4 shows as having 64-bit OS support, though such support is attested to on the Shareware On Sale page for the Active Sale page for CyberLink PhotoDirector 4. It isn’t clear whether the 64-bit OS support indicated is strictly for 8/8.1 or includes 7 (or XP). Does the featured item support 64-bit or not? I run Win7 64-bit and don’t want to go through install and find support isn’t there.And is or isn’t the featured item the Ultra version? The download doesn’t say Ultra, nor is it indicated in the install, at least not very far into the install, which I halted. Can we get an answer as to whether the download is the Ultra 4 version and whether the Windows version truly supports all 64-bit Windows OS?

    I appreciate the offering, but I like to know what it is that I’m downloading and installing (whether the software is full-price, discounted, or free), and like to have the correct information also so that I can determine the degree of benefit of the upgrade choices.

    Worth a mention also for some who may confuse approval of the software for business use with approval for commercial use: Though home and business use is listed under the terms and conditions given on the Shareware On Sale active sale page for the featured product, the EULA during install clearly indicates that approved use for the software does NOT include commercial use, so be aware of that.

    As I posted when it was offered last month (OLD COMMENT #122) it installed and registered without problem on XP SP3, but slows the whole system down and the display is distorted to the point that the program is useless to me. Can anyone here or at Cyberlink please tell me what is wrong and how to fix it so I can make use of what seems to be a useful program? Thanks!

    Windows users get a download-link not for the software itself, but for a small downloader, which – once started – didn’t do its job at all but freezed my system. So, if you managed to get the serial using the hints given in the comments, but can’t download the real program, here’s a link I figured out for direct download:

    Vereinfachte Anleitung (nicht über die Shareware on Sale Webbie, und keine Mail benötigt):

    a) Wer kein Chrome hat:
    b) Hola AddOn für Chrome:

    Das AddOn schaltet nur einen Tab um, nicht den ganzen Browser. Sehr bequem.

    1. in Chrome laden, Hola auf US setzen. Seite läd erneut, ggf. die URL nochmal einfügen wenn die Seite sich ändert.
    2. Formular ausfüllen. Name und Mail egal (kann alles fake sein). Redeem Code: PHD4CNET

    Serial und Download für Mac und Win Version werden danach sofort im Browser angezeigt.
    Dat war’s.

    After loading and installing this program and getting no registration number due to “wrong” redeem code, I tried entering the code given below by our French friend and it registered straight away – no problem.

    Just one observation; As soon as you have registered Version 4 you are asked to upgrade to Version 5 for a 40% discount! Whether this applies to us, who received this version free, I would not dare to speculate!!!
    Version 4, in the meantime, will suffice to see how the program behaves and get an idea of what functions are missing.

    For fellow dottechies/SOS followers that are still using Win XP w/ service pack TWO… save yourself the grief and disappointment and don’t try to download this offering. (You have to have SP3).

    I went through a big mess by recently by downloading an offering for Hornil StylePix Pro, only to find out later, that they required SP3—SP2 would NOT work. I wish that when companies list system requirements, they would list COMPLETE requirements. Often times, one has to search high and low to find out this info.

    What are the minimum system requirements for CyberLink PhotoDirector 4?

    The system requirements listed below are recommended as minimums for using the CyberLink PhotoDirector program in Windows Platform.

    - Microsoft Windows 8 (32 bit and 64 bit)
    - Microsoft Windows 7 (32 bit and 64 bit)
    - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise (32 bit and 64 bit)
    - Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 3

    Like for the offer of 15 February 2014, the exact name is always PtotoDirector HE 4.0.4317.0. But the value indicated as “Number SR” is past from “PTD131121-03″ to “PTD140217-03″. The acronym “HR” is still a mystery. This version 4 is an older version and the price of $99.00 is for the actual “PhotoDirector 5 Ultra” version. But the offer of upgrade allows this time, a comparison between several commercial versions and this non commercial version.

    Installed and registered fine on Win XP SP3. When I try to run the program, it takes a ridiculously long time (like most of an hour and it still doesn’t seem to be finished) to load while it slows everything else on the system down to a c–r–a–w–l, and when it does seem to finally load there is a large picture of a sunflower and some thumbnails at the bottom (I presume those are sample pics) but everywhere I would expect text to appear there is some white vertical hatching, and if I try to click on one of the aforementioned thumbnails I get more of that hatching, some of which looks like a stretched & distorted greyscale version of one of the other thumbnails (not the one I clicked and not the sunflower, either) crossed by raster scan lines. Anyone else get anything like that? Do I need to change some setting, or is it telling me my graphics card or some other hardware or software on my system is inadequate for or incompatible with the software?

    Looks like it might be a nice program if I could get it to run properly. Can anyone help me get it to do so?

    Would have been a potentially great product if I can only get it to install successfully. I must have downloaded the Windows version at east 6 times from both main and alternate servers, and they all appear to be the same identical file. I have tried to install six different times, each time unsuccessfully midway. Each time I use the latest version of IObit Uninstaller to uninstall it and then tried to re-install without any success. Ashraf, am I one of the few who are having this problem?

    [@BearPup] You can try another download but if the program successfully installed, then I don’t think the installer is the issue. I would do this: a) Uninstall it b) Run CCleaner on registry (be sure to back up) c) Restart computer and d) Reinstall as admin and run as admin after reinstall

I have run CCLeaner since then, but a) did not target Cyberlink, and b) did not follow it with a restart. Do you think those two steps are critical? Maybe I should try a new download?

    I downloaded the program, ran the install as an administrator, but when it sets up after a successful install it loads but there is no writing anywhere. The window sets up normally, as in everything is in its place, but there is no writing (directions or labels). When I pass my mouse over any boundary area, the screen becomes a solid color; and the only way out is through Task Manager. Is anyone else experiencing anything similar?

    Mais sur le site, la comparaison ne peut se faire qu’entre trois autres différentes dénominations: PhotoDirector 5 Suite; PhotoDirector 5 Utra; PhotoDirector 5 Deluxe.
    Le programme est par contre en disponible en français.

    This is an earlier version of this program, and tech details do not list Win8 support. Latest (paid) version (5) probably does.

    I don’t understand why some or anyone is ever having any problems with downloading, installing or activating this excellent program. SOS’s instructions couldn’t anywhere else be clearer if you only paid less-than-too-excited attention.

    [@quiddity] Yes, CyberLink recently released v5 this past Sept, which we actually had on sale for $49.99 recently.

    When installing I got the error that RarSFX0 was not accessible. So I made that directory, but then was RarSFX1 not accessible and so on, #2, #3….Anyway, I could not install the program, and removed it. Sorry, it looked so nice.
