Old phone, new pix: Photo Director is a free photo editing app for aging devices


Those of you sporting an out-of-date Android device or a phone with less-than-stellar camera capabilities should count your blessings: There are plenty of apps in the Google Play store that can "fake" it all.

CyberLink, the company behind well-known PC applications like PowerDVD, released one such app today. CyberLink's Photo Director brings tools like smart object removal, easy HDR and preset effects, and one-click color adjustment to aging handsets. Photo Director also offers your choice of more than 70 preset photo overlay effects, including several Lomo, Artistic, and Vignette effects. For those of you still waiting for an upgrade, the app runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above, and it requires a mere 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM to work.

You can download the free app from the Google Play store
