Introducing the Advanced Layers Update for the Exposure X2 Creative Photo Editor.

The Advanced Layers Update is a bold step forward for Exposure X2, our award-winning creative photo editor. It adds new features that further enhance your creativity and speed up your workflow.

It’s available now on our store. If you own Exposure X2, it’s a free update, so look for an email with the download link.

Here are some of the new features:

Advanced Layers

The new non-destructive layering system is something that many of you have asked for. You can now stack effects more intuitively and with greater creative control. Layers can be copied and pasted, blended, applied to multiple images, saved as custom presets, and more. There’s no limit to the number of layers you can create, and it’s easy to manage them.

New Presets and Overlays

New vintage platinum presets provide delicate, rich platinum tones that imbue your images with warm blacks and expanded mid-tone grays. New border overlays simulate the matte brushed region that surrounds the image. New Bright presets provide light, low-contrast looks that are great for outdoor portraits and weddings.

High DPI Support

High-DPI support for Windows joins the existing support for Retina displays on macOS.

Quick Exports

The new quick export feature significantly speeds up image exports, and gives you greater control over the process. You can now export different image recipes simultaneously. Save variants for web, publishing, and more, each with different settings and to different folders. Exposure’s quick export profiles provide recipes for common social media and portfolio exports.

New File Naming and Destination Options

New file naming options enable the use of current time and capture time for more flexibility. Destination templates automate the placement of photos in subfolders, saving you from having to manually navigate to subfolders each time you upload or export.

Expanded Camera Support and Manual Lens Correction

Exposure now supports the following cameras and lenses:

  • Fujifilm XF 10-24 f4 and XF 35mm f2 lenses
  • Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon 80D cameras

Manual lens correction enables you to adjust lens distortion, select a lens profile, and turn off lens correction.

Selective Presets

You now have more creative control in how you apply presets. You can mix presets and edits, deciding on what adjustments to include or exclude when copying settings or creating user presets. This feature works especially well with Exposure’s new layering system.

Exposure Bundle Updates

We’ve also updated the Exposure Bundle, so that this latest version of Exposure X2 is the centerpiece. The bundle integrates all of our award-winning photo apps: Exposure, Snap Art, and Blow Up.

The Fastest Way to Bring Your Vision to Life

If you haven’t used Exposure before, we invite you to try it free for 30 days. You’ll experience the benefits of using an award-winning, nondestructive RAW creative photo editor that’s the fastest way to bring your vision to life.
