Alien Skin Software announces availability of Exposure 7
Alien Skin Software announced the immediate availability of Exposure 7, the latest version of its flagship photography effects software. Now featuring non-destructive RAW editing as a stand-alone program, Exposure 7 enables digital photographers to achieve accurate analog film emulation and creative effects faster and easier than ever. Exposure 7 can also be used as a plug-in for Lightroom (version 5 or newer) and Photoshop (CS6 or later) for even greater flexibility. Exposure 7 brings all the creative tools of a traditional photographic darkroom to the world of digital, such as the look of discontinued films, printing techniques, and borders and textures. Popular classic films like Kodachrome, Velvia and TRI-X have been carefully analyzed in order to faithfully simulate their characteristic tonal ranges and grain structures. Over 470 preset effects can be applied with a single mouse click, helping photographers achieve their desired look quickly. Aside from RAW support, Exposure 7 now provides rapid folder and file browsing so a user can quickly pull up individual photos or batches of images and get right to work on them. A crop-and-rotate tool and easy exporting functionality rounds out the new additions to the standalone version's user interface. Exposure 7 is available for immediate download from alienskin.com for $149 US. Owners of any version of Exposure may upgrade for $69 US. Free upgrades will be automatically sent to everyone who purchased Exposure 6 directly from Alien Skin Software since its launch in June 2014. For more information, watch the video tutorials.
