    Hi Jeff,
    Now that I have the PS CS6 installed — can I get my Alien Skin Exposure 3 to work with that?
    Thanks in advance

    Can Exposure 4 be used on video in Photoshop CS6 Extended? I have some need to apply the old film filters to video as well as photographs and am hoping it can do both.

    • Robert June 14, 2012 at 1:09 pm

      Yes, Exposure 4 will work with both video and still images in Photoshop CS6 Extended. Please, check out the video workflow tutorial on our website. If you run into any issues, you can always contact support at

    I’m trying to re-install my Eyecandy 6 after rebuilding my Mac – It installs fine, but when it tries to launch the ‘Licence Activation’, I get a warning that says ‘Fatal error occurred while starting the application. (1002)’ hence, I can’t fill in my licence code.

    Anyone else having this problem, and is there a workaround?

    Since upgrading to OS Mt. Lion on my mac I can’t seem to get Blow-up to work correctly. It stops short of enlarging everything, leaving some layers original size.
    I’m using CS5. Is there an update for Mt. Lion?

    Is there any way to get Exposure 2 running with PS CS6?

    I just go Photoshop CS6 for PC . Can I install my old version of Exposure 1 ?

    • Robert April 9, 2013 at 1:03 pm

      Exposure 1 is not supported in CS6. You are more than welcome to try performing a custom install, installing it directly into the CS6 plug-ins folder, but we will not be able to assist with any problem. The best option is to upgrade to Exposure 4. If you have any further questions, please email us at

        Just drop it in the plug-ins folder? The how do I access it in Photoshop?

        • Robert April 10, 2013 at 11:57 am


          No, just download it from the main downloads page on our website.

          Then, run the installer and select CS6 from the list. It will automatically install into the correct folder. You will be able to find your plug-ins under the Filter > Alien Skin menu, in Photoshop. If you run into any issues, or have any questions, please submit a support ticket. We can help you in much more detail though that system.

    Can Eye Candy 5 be used with Photoshop CS6?

    • Robert June 25, 2013 at 3:58 pm

      Eye Candy 5 is not compatible with CS6. The only option would be to upgrade to Eye Candy 7.

      • Tito Z June 25, 2013 at 4:49 pm

        Hi Robert! Thanks for the clarification, I thought I was doing something wrong after attempting to install it a couple of times — unsuccessfully, of course.

    Hi Flex,

    I’m a new user and unable to download the software, i have PS6 on Mac and want to download Alien SKin 4 Exposure 4.
    Each time i visit I can’t find any download bottom?

    Please advise.

  9. Samrat January 18, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    I tried to permanently delete the downloaded trail version of Exposure 5 from my CS5 following the path Application/ Adobe Photoshop CS5/ Plugins/ Alien Skin, but to my surprise it still shows in the the effects window. Can you suggest me a solution to this. Thank you.
