Enhanced Photo Organizing in Exposure X3 with Keywords

By | |Tutorials, Exposure|

Exposure X3 is coming soon, and it brings lots of new functionality with it. One exciting new feature is Exposure’s full support of keywords. Check out the tutorial above and learn how the new keywords feature helps you organize and access your photo library.

Keywords enable you to group your images in a number of ways, which makes it easy to find your images no matter how large your photo library is. In Exposure, you can use the keyword indexing system that fits your style, either by using a simple flat list of keywords, or by creating a hierarchy by nesting keywords inside other keywords. Keywords are particularly useful in situations where large numbers of photos need to be quickly searched, like photojournalism and stock photography.

There are tons of new features coming in Exposure X3. Stay tuned to learn more!

    I’ve been following all the upgrades and really enjoy your product. So easy to use and get amazing results. I have X2 and want to know about upgrading to X3.

    Thanks so much,

      Thanks for the kind words, Mark. As a owner of Exposure X2, you’re eligible for our $99 upgrade pricing. We’re working hard to finalize the product and hope to have a shipping announcement very soon.

    It looks like a very thorough keywording implementation, pretty good for a first version. Is possible to import/export keyword sets following any kind of standard structure ? If X3 can “play nice” with DAM applications this would be a very compelling reason to upgrade from X2. But if it creates another “keyword silo”, not so much.

    I guess the next obvious request is to combine keywords with collections to create smart collections…

      Thanks for commenting, David. Exposure X3 can extract standard XMP keywords from image file metadata. And Exposure can import and export keyword sets, but it can only do this using its own format. Additional support of importing/exporting keyword sets with other apps is something I can suggest to the development team.

      Smart collections is a feature we have on the roadmap for a future version of Exposure.
