  • Alien Skin Software Announces Exposure X3 Complete Workflow Update for Photographers

    Raleigh, NC (March 20, 2018) - Alien Skin Software today announced the release of the Exposure X3 Complete Workflow Update, the latest version of their non-destructive RAW photo editor. The award-winning Exposure combines powerful organizational tools and accurate photo processing into a single intuitive solution. Enhancements to this latest version make Exposure the ideal solution for handling the full photography workflow.

    Photographers can easily organize, edit, retouch, export, and print their photos using Exposure's efficient workflow. Exposure's intuitive design streamlines image management and backups. Its support of cloud-based storage enables multi-computer and collaborative workflows.

    The Exposure X3 Complete Workflow Update introduces numerous creative and organizing enhancements.

    "This latest update to Exposure X3 provides photographers with additional creative and organizational control, and handles their printing needs as well," said Alien Skin CEO Finley Lee. "Exposure's speed, stability, and power makes it the fastest way for photographers to bring their vision to life."

    Improvements to the color controls enable photographers to adjust hue, luminance, and saturation for specific colors. In addition, users can easily target specific colors in their image for detailed adjustments.

    For RAW images that record white balance data, photographers can now specify precise Kelvin values to correct for lighting conditions and unwanted color casts. New white balance presets provide a quick way to set the Kelvin temperature for a specific type of light.

    Photographers can now print their photos directly from Exposure. New print capabilities include numerous preview and margin options, output sharpening, integrated watermarks, grid capability for printing contact sheets, and more.

    Collections see several refinements. New images copied from a photo card are now placed in a Last Copy From Card collection. Optionally, when copying images from their camera card, photographers can choose to add images to any existing collections. Also, when creating a collection, it's possible to add any images that are currently selected.

    Keywords have been improved with the ability to remove all keywords from a photo and to add and remove keywords from a set. It's also now possible to import keyword sets from other applications like Lightroom.

    Exposure's watermarks now have new metadata options, a watermark preview in the Export dialog, and improved control when moving and rotating a watermark.

    A number of miscellaneous improvements include expanded camera support, the ability to backup photos to a second location when copying images from a card, a six image side-by-side layout, a new uninstaller, 15 new presets that mimic Fujifilm in-camera film simulations, and more.

    Exposure X4.5, which is free to all owners of Exposure X4, further expands Exposure's capabilities with significant new tools.

    LUT support opens up new creative possibilities for photographers. LUT effects, available freely on the Internet or produced by other photo and video apps, may be imported into Exposure, where they can achieve striking looks. These effects can be further enhanced using Exposure's advanced editing and layering tools.

    The redesigned Copy Photos from Card function displays visual previews of images at the source location, allowing photographers to quickly select the images they wish to copy, as well as select a variety of flexible source and destination options. Exposure's unique design differs from traditional photo editors by removing the need for slow imports, enabling photographers to begin their creative edits immediately after the image copy begins.

    Configurable keyboard shortcuts allow photographers to assign an editing, organizing, or navigating function to a selected keystroke. For those migrating from Lightroom to Exposure, an included Lightroom keyboard shortcut preset eases the transition.

  • New things

    • 3D Color Masking allows you to control where an image adjustment is applied by color characteristics such as hue, saturation, and luminance. You can select foreground or background areas, skies, skin tones or specific color ranges using the tool.
    • Chromatic Aberration Correction removes color fringes caused by lens refraction. Corrections can be applied by selecting a lens profile or manually for more precise control. Apply via lens profile or by manual adjustment if precise control is desired.
    • Vignette Correction does what it says on the tin and lifts the brightness around the edges of your images to counteract vignetting effects. Like the CA correction, this can be applied using a lens profile or manually.
    • Custom Camera Profiles let you control the JPG color rendering from RAW data for a particular camera. Camera profiles created by X-Rite or other software can be automatically applied by matching a camera model or serial number. Optionally they can also be applied when matching a specific lens or a pre-defined ISO range.
