Alien Skin News: January 2011

In late December we finished the last of the 64-bit product updates. All currently shipping Alien Skin products are now 64-bit compatible on both Mac OS X and Windows. I know this felt like it took us a long time. It felt that way to us too!

On Mac OS X, the updates only support the Intel platform, so PowerPC users should not update.

You can download the latest installers from our downloads page.

Hernan Rodriguez

Hernan Rodriguez wrote a long article in our blog about his work with editorial help from our own Jimmy Beech. It is really worth a read if you are interested in how a successful pro approaches photography. Hernan uses Exposure masterfully, often in subtle ways. The comments below the article are quite impressive, including one from a happy bride. That is the ultimate endorsement for wedding photographers!

Maybe the highlights of the Flickr group will become a monthly article. So far there has certainly been plenty to show off each month. In our blog I wrote articles on some of our contributors. Ethereal Snow shows off great uses of Exposure in snow photographs. Good Bokeh shows how to use Bokeh without drawing attention to the effect. Come join the Flickr group for more inspiration!

About.com Reader's Choice Awards

If you love our products and want to spread the word, then please vote in the About.com Reader's Choice Awards. It is very easy to enter your nominations. I think this is intended for products released in 2010, so Exposure 3 and Bokeh 2 are candidates, but you can probably enter in any product you love.

More Blog Fun

On the blog we usually stick to photography and 2-D graphic design, but sometimes stray into topics that are just fun, like 3-D printing or sound sculptures. For a more utilitarian article, here is one on shortcut keys.

Following the blog's RSS feed or friending us on Facebook can be rewarding. For instance, you might hear about sales! Our friends at APC (Artistic Photo Canvas) are giving our fans 20% off on canvas printing during January 2011. Read the article to get the coupon code and learn why we like APC.
