Alien Skin Software’s Exposure X for OS X and Windows is a digital imaging app designed to helps photographers quickly organize, edit, and enhance their photos. Exposure X streamlines routine tasks and gives photographers a set of software tools for developing photos.
Exposure X imparts a human touch to digital photos through its library of analog looks. Each look encompasses many subtle changes that work together to inspire a specific emotion. Exposure X covers every interesting corner of photographic history, such as funky Lo-Fi cameras, classic Kodachrome, modern portrait film, or all the way back to old-fashioned Daguerreotypes and autochromes. Photographers can explore these visual ideas for inspiration and then quickly refine them to develop their own personalized style.
It can be used as a plug-in for Photoshop and Lightroom, or as a complete photo editor on its own. Exposure X is configurable so photographers can move tools exactly where they want them and hide ones they don’t use. Users can browse preset styles visually with a grid of images to see how they will look on their photos.
Exposure X edits non-destructively, so a photographer’s original photo is never touched and changes can always be undone. Additionally, using proprietary algorithms Exposure X handles RAW images from a range of popular cameras.
Exposure X doesn’t use a catalog, so users don’t need to manually import photos into a database. Just browse to a folder of images and immediately get to work. Exposure X can use cloud storage for working on the same photos at home and on the road or even collaborating with other photographers.
Exposure X doesn’t rely on separate modules, so the full set of editing tools are available at all times. In the middle of organizing their photo library photographers can develop a photo’s style. No time is lost switching between modules.
Exposure X is available now from www.alienskin.com for US$149. Owners of any version of Exposure may upgrade for $99. Free upgrades will automatically be sent to everyone who purchased Exposure 7.
