The Exposure X Bundle Touches Down April 19th!

It’s been a few months since we released Exposure X, the standalone editor that also works as a Photoshop and Lightroom plugin. Since then, we’ve been busying our translucent alien fingers with putting the finishing touches on an update to our complete photo editor, the Photo Bundle. Starting on April 19th, it will be known as the Exposure X Bundle.

As you might have guessed, Exposure X is its centerpiece. We’ve integrated Exposure X with our other photo editing apps: Snap Art 4 and Blow Up 3. This bundle introduces a closer level of integration between Exposure X and these apps — for the first time, they can be launched directly from within Exposure X. And the bundle includes the latest version of Exposure X (version X.1), which brings new features like multi-monitor support, batch-file renaming, improved performance, and a brush mask for more precise editing. As always, each app can also be launched as a Photoshop or Lightroom plugin.

And there are savings, lots of savings.

The Exposure X Bundle is almost 60% less expensive than buying each app separately. For those of you who already own Exposure X, Snap Art 4, or Blow Up 3, you save an additional 40% on the bundle price. And if you bought the previous Photo Bundle after December 8th (the Exposure X release date), then the Exposure X Bundle is a free upgrade for you.

In case you aren’t familiar with the previous Photo Bundle, or with each of the three apps, here’s a quick rundown on each:

  • Exposure X non-destructive editing and organizing tools make it easy for you create beautiful images and manage your photo library. A few standout features are:
    • Hundreds of evocative film styles as starting points for developing your own style
    • Robust editing tools to refine your images
    • A streamlined workflow that eliminates fussy, time-consuming tasks like importing images and managing catalogs
    • Extensive organizational tools to help you manage your photos
    • A UI that’s customizable and intuitive
  • Snap Art natural media tools enable you to easily transform your photos into gorgeous, handcrafted paintings that look like they were created using oil paints, watercolors, etc.
  • Blow Up image enlargement technology makes it easy for you to enlarge your photos while keeping them crystal clear.

With these tools at your fingertips, you have a complete photo editor that enables you to create captivating images in a variety of styles. You can also move quickly through your workflow, so that you can get back to shooting.

If you’re shooting professionally, you can deliver more value to your clients with these cool styles and treatments. See here for an awesome case study.  If you’re shooting for your family or for yourself, you can bring an unexpected look to portraits, landscapes, and any other style that you shoot.

    If you already own each of these products individually, do you still have to pay to purchase the bundle (which is essentially only going to offer you the app integration as I understand it)?

    • Jimmy Beech April 12, 2016 at 4:00 pm

      Hi Randall,

      Nope, you won’t have to. If you already own the products in the Photo Bundle, you can download the Exposure X Bundle from the website once it’s shipped.

    Will it work in Photoshop 5.5 or Coral Paintshop Pro? I own all the product now, and they work in them.
    Also, I use your products for my 3D and digital art, as well as photos.

    • Jimmy Beech April 13, 2016 at 10:05 am

      Hey Bob,

      While we no longer officially support either Photoshop CS 5.5 or Paintshop Pro as host applications, that doesn’t mean they won’t work. Plenty of users have had success using a custom install with unsupported host apps. If you want to give it a try, reach out to us through the helpdesk, we’re happy to help.

      Photoshop 5.5 would be a tall support order for any one out there. (It was pre-Y2K compliant–not kidding!) 🙂

    I currently own Exposure X and Snap Art 4.0 as stand alone applications. Is there an upgrade path to the Bundle?

    • Jimmy Beech April 13, 2016 at 10:33 am

      Hey Dan,

      If you own at least one of the products in the Exposure X Bundle, you are eligible for the upgrade price.

  4. Karin Gottschalk April 12, 2016 at 7:22 pm

    Looking forward to trying them all out!

    I own exposure exposure 7 what do I need to do get up to date with everything Regards Lynda

      If you don’t own one of the products in the Exposure X Bundle, you don’t qualify for the upgrade price. It’s more cost effective to purchase the new bundle rather than upgrade from version 7 to Exposure X and then upgrade to the bundle.

    I already own all 3 apps, so will happily download after April 19th, because I need the:
    “streamlined workflow that eliminates fussy, time-consuming tasks like importing images and managing catalogs” !!!
    Thank you.

    I own two of the bundled products. If I only get the upgrade price (the same as if I own only one), why should I bother? It only seems reasonable that owning two already, I should something better than the upgrade price. Especially when I have owned the two products for years.

    • Jimmy Beech April 14, 2016 at 10:54 am

      Hi Richard,

      Since you already own two of the products in the bundle, it would be cheaper to purchase the third title on its own. If you own all three products in the bundle, you can download the Exposure X Bundle (after the launch date) and take advantage of the slick new integration.

    is there a bundle without snapart?

    • Jimmy Beech April 19, 2016 at 7:31 am

      Nope, just the Exposure X Bundle (Exposure, Snap Art, & Blow Up).

  9. Trish Trammell April 15, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    I only own Snap Art and want xposure 7 and am still in the trial for exposure 7. So when the bundle goes live just purchase the bundle? I also have a discount code. Will I be able to apply this to my purchase?

    • Jimmy Beech April 19, 2016 at 7:37 am

      Yes! If you already own a copy of any of the current products in the bundle (Exposure X, Snap Art 4, or Blow Up 3) you can purchase a copy of the Exposure X Bundle for the upgrade price. Promo codes can be applied at checkout.
