Software Releases ExposureTM
Raleigh, NC (January 24, 2006) - Alien Skin Software
today released Exposure, an all-new plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® and
other compatible host programs. Exposure brings the look and feel of film to
digital photography. Digital photographers can now simulate current and
discontinued film stocks, as well as recreate their signature look as a
one-click effect. Exposure also simulates darkroom and studio effects such as
push and cross processing. Moreover, saturation, light temperature, dynamic
range, softness, sharpness, and the addition of realistic grain can be managed
in one place.
Foremost a film simulator, Exposure is based on the
detailed analysis of real world film stocks. A photographer can now quickly and
easily evoke the vivid colors of Velvia®, the rich blacks of
Kodachrome®, or the sensitivity of Ektachrome®. Exposure includes
presets that emulate the warmth, softness, and realistic grain of dozens of
real world film stocks, both color and black and white. Plus, any preset can be
the starting point for a signature look, adjusted to suit a particular subject,
or applied to a batch of images using Photoshop Actions.
realistic grain separately to the shadows, mid-tones, and highlights of an
image. Unlike other digital products, Exposure does not add simple, harsh noise
to an image. Instead, Exposure models the size, shape, and color of real world
grain. Exposure can even mimic the pronounced grain of films such as
Ilford® 3200 Delta, as well as the discontinued Ektachrome EES and GAF® 500.
Collecting color, dynamic range, softness, and grain controls in
one plug-in, Exposure simplifies workflow. Photographers can now master one
easy-to-use tool. Streamlined color and saturation controls warm/cool with a
single slider while preserving skin tones or preventing oversaturated reds.
Exposure makes gamma correction and contrast changes less intimidating by
adding high level contrast, highlight and shadow controls to curves editing.
Exposure includes several, additional features that address the needs
of photographers. Exposure reproduces key studio and darkroom effects such as
cross processing, push processing, and glamour portrait softening. Exposure
encourages non-destructive editing, allowing users to render an adjusted image
as a new layer in Photoshop. Exposure's advanced preview system includes an
optional, split screen preview in addition to a before/after button. Exposure
pairs unlimited undo/redo with fast rendering and lets photographers zoom and
pan using Photoshop style keyboard shortcuts.
