At Exposure’s heart is a huge library of beautiful styles. We developed them through careful research of modern and historical photographic techniques. There are color and black & white looks from every corner of photographic history, such as funky Lo-Fi cameras, classic Kodachrome, modern portrait film, and old-fashioned Daguerreotypes and autochromes.
Our carefully crafted presets are starting points for your own customized looks. All the editing tools you need are there, from exposure and vibrance to noise reduction and sharpening. You can put finishing touches on your photos with Exposure’s Overlay panel, which includes realistic sun flare, vintage borders, and textures. Draw attention to your subject by manipulating focus with the Bokeh panel. New to Exposure X is the ability to layer presets, giving you even more creative options to explore.
Here are some examples of looks you can achieve with Exposure X:
Exposure has low contrast print film presets that are ideal for portraits. They subtly reduce saturation and strong detail, resulting in clear, smooth skin.

The soft focus at the edges of this image draws attention to the infant’s face. This was accomplished with Exposure’s Bokeh panel, which offers a wide range of creative focus effects, from lens simulations to tilt-shift and motion blur looks.

This is an example of one of Exposure’s many vintage looks. The Tintype border and split-tone color work together to create an aged look. Exposure includes many historical processes such as Daguerreotype and early Kodachrome.

Exposure can be used for subtle refinements that keep your photo looking natural. Here the exposure and saturation were tuned up using the Basic panel.
