Exposure 6 Is Here!

Sue Bryce Alien Skin E6

 

Digital Images. Analog Soul.

Now featuring all the creative focus effects of Bokeh, Exposure™ 6 brings even more of the organic warmth and artistry of analog photography to the world of digital.

Borne from more than a decade of research and input from industry-leading photographers around the globe, Exposure 6 provides you with a platform to instill your images with the subtle nuances and analog beauty of film photography. With Exposure 6, your photo will look hand-crafted, not computer-generated.

What’s New

Creative Focus Effects
Exposure 6 delivers all the powerful functionality of our creative focus and lens simulation program, Bokeh. So you can now draw attention to your subject by manipulating focus, vignette and depth of field. From simulation of fast lenses such as the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L and the Nikon 300mm f/2.8 through to tilt/shift and motion blur looks, Exposure 6 offers you an endless array of visually creative options.

Instant Previews
Choosing your look is what Exposure is all about, so we have rewritten the image processing engine to make it lightning fast. No need to squint at tiny preview windows or click and wait for the image to render like in other programs! Exposure 6 automatically displays full-sized instant previews as you mouse over to help you quickly experiment and define your look.

Improved UI
Exposure 6 features an updated user interface with a cleaner layout for improved aesthetics and quicker navigation. We have made the standard background a darker gray color to facilitate editing of both color and B&W images. The preset browser now also offers a list view as well as optional thumbnails for a more visual experience.

Basic Control Panel
In order to give you even finer creative control over your images, Exposure 6 sports a brand new basic control panel containing sliders to tweak your image’s exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, clarity, vibrance and saturation for faster editing and less reliance on other programs.

New Borders, Light Effects and Textures
Exposure 6 includes many new lighting effects such as realistic sun flare, and authentic vintage borders from the archives of world-renowned photographer Parker J Pfister. But it doesn’t stop there – you can now import your own custom borders and textures and share them across multiple computers too.

Retina Support
Exposure 6 now supports Apple retina displays for unsurpassable image quality.

    Looking at the specs, it would seem that Exposure 6 is not compatible with Photoshop Elements – is this correct?

    Unnecessary hoops to jump through 🙂
    Can you imagine my disbelieving stare when I ran the upgrade:
    WHAT? No Photoshop support? No Exposure insiste I could only install it in LR 🙁

    Well I could have done without downloading a PS6 demo, installing it in there, then flipping it back into the PS CS5 Plugin folder !!! on a slow line it takes ages to download that demo, then clean your system again, plus you gotta tell LR that is PS5 again.

    So PLEASE fix this installer bug, it runs fine with PS- CS5 no problems whatsoever.
    I have also found that you say for a lot of filteres needs at least OSX 10.¿? not it doesn’t. apart from the last update they all work on 10.6 🙂

    I think I deserve a discount on the next upgrade.

    Thank you, but WHY is it ‘no longer a supported host app’? There are zillions of people using it and if you consider how much Adobe charges OUTSIDE the US you would not upgrade PS either. I know many who still use PS CS4 and are happy with it.. They also use your plugins.
    After all, I’m sure you can easily test whether it works or not.

    Well it is fixed but wouldn’t it be better to fix the installer so that you don’t have to use up 20% of your monthly internet allowance to fix the problem?

    I am writing this because, your custom install button AIN’T THERE!!! I have just looked again and I was actually looking then

    So fix your installer please. And yes I’d like a discount for discovering a serious bug 🙂

      It’s not possible for Exposure 6 to support CS4. It’s not that there is a bug in our software. There are major architectural differences (programming stuff) that makes CS4 incompatible. The customer install button is shown with the keystroke Command or Control – A, but that will not help it work in CS4. I am sorry for the trouble.

  5. […] Alien Skin Exposure 6. This new version 6 is very nice. I like the ability to hover the cursor over the presets and a small window pops up to show you what your image looks like if you apply that preset. Also the right-side control pane is very clear and gives you a lot of flexibility. This new version is the one that I usually resort to when I want to see something else in my image and experiment or fine tune what I’ve already worked on with other plug-ins.Link to Alien Skin website […]
