There are loads of new features in Exposure 6; many of them came from the advice of users like you. Please continue to share your opinions with us. We’re definitely listening!
We just put the final touches on a very important video tutorial entitled: “What’s New.” We thought you might want to see it. Below the video is a summary of what’s been done to turn this epic software title up a notch.
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.
Choosing your look is the 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! Exposure 6 automatically displays full-sized instant previews as you mouse over to help you quickly experiment and define your look.
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.
Exposure 6 now supports Apple retina displays and other high-definition monitors for unsurpassable image quality.
So what do you think of them apples? Feel free to share your feedback with us below.
We’ll be back in touch with more updates soon!
