Alien Skin Software has announced Exposure 4, the new version of its photography effects plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Photoshop Lightroom. Exposure provides film simulation and a range of creative effects in a simple interface.
Exposure brings all the creative tools of film photography to the world of digital, such as discontinued films, dark room tricks, and lo-fi camera quirks, according to Tom Welsh, the designer of Exposure. Popular classic films are accurately simulated, like Kodachrome, Polaroid, and Panatomic-X, he adds. Exposure reproduces the ethereal glow of black & white infrared film, and now color infrared.
New texture overlay effects are built from high resolution photos of light leaks, dust and scratches, and borders. This helps add detail to new presets for alternative photographic processes like cyanotype, lith printing, and wet plate photography.
What’s more, Exposure 4 has a completely redesigned user interface and new controls designed to help you quickly explore its wide range of effects or develop your own custom looks.
Exposure 4 will be available in February at http://www.alienskin.com for US$249. Owners of any version of Exposure may upgrade for $99. Free upgrades will be automatically sent to everyone who purchased Exposure 3 directly from Alien Skin Software in November 2011 or later.
