Introducing Exposure X3, The Latest Version of Our Advanced RAW Photo Editor

I’m excited to announce that Exposure X3 is now available! It’s the latest version of Exposure, our award-winning creative photo editor, and includes new features that greatly enhance your ability to create beautiful images and master your workflow.

Here are some of them:

Powerful New Organizing Tools

Keyword support enables you to add descriptive tags to your photos, so you can easily organize your images around themes, and quickly find them on your computer.

Collections help you quickly and easily group your images, no matter where they appear on your computer. Create collections of favorite photos, organize projects spanning multiple photo shoots, or group images for export. Use the quick collection feature to quickly organize images for short-term projects, such as photo contests or for blog articles.

Virtual copies encourage your creativity by enabling you to edit multiple variations of a single photo, without taking up additional disk space.

Creative New Editing Tools

The side-by-side view enables you to compare multiple images, or to compare the same image using multiple presets. It’s a great way to narrow down your selections, find the best preset, and edit multiple virtual copies to experiment with different looks.

Exposure’s basic editing tools are now even more powerful:

  • Blacks and Whites sliders give you greater control over the tonal range of your photos
  • Orange and Purple saturation sliders give you greater control over the color adjustments

The enhanced Overlays panel gives you more creative control when applying light effects, borders, and texture overlays to your photo.

  • Import multiple custom overlays simultaneously
  • New overlay blend modes enable a greater variety of looks

Exposure’s new linear and radial tools make it easy to achieve a seamless, natural fade between multiple effects. These work great for adjusting skies in landscape images or faces in portraits. Exposure X3 includes six new presets that make use of this new capability

And More

  • Flexible watermarking when exporting, so you can put your own stamp on your images
  • Numerous speed enhancements that help you cruise through your work
  • Enhanced preset copy and paste for greater creative control
  • Enhanced vignette positioning shows you where the center of your vignette is
  • Additional camera and lens support

Exposure Bundle Updates

We’ve also updated the Exposure Bundle to include Exposure X3 as its central app. The bundle integrates all of our award-winning photo apps: Exposure, Snap Art, and Blow Up.

    I bought Exposure 2 a few months back. Do I have to pay full price to get Exposure 3 or can I update 2 to 3?

      Hi Amiee,

      Thanks for purchasing Exposure! No, since you own a previous version, you can use the discounted upgrade price in the store.

    I bought the X2 package few months back and must say the output JPEGs are very impressive.
    in order for me to upgrade do I need to buy the upgrade package or the exposure X3 only? is there any update to the Snap Art or only to exposure ?

      Thanks for purchasing our software, Moshe! You only need to upgrade Exposure X3.

    I’m looking for a replacement editor since Adobe now wants me to subscribe for the rest of my life. I’m just an active hobbyist, not a pro. I use Fujifilm’s X-Pro2, which I see is supported. But the list of supported lenses is thin. When might you be adding more?

    Thanks so much for your time.

      Thanks for commenting, Christin. We are always working on adding support for new cameras and lenses. We come out with small updates to Exposure every few months that include support for new models.

      Are there camera models that you are looking for in particular? If you have a camera that isn’t on our supported list, we’re happy to put support for it on our roadmap. We could use sample files to help us develop camera support if you are willing to share a few of them with us.

        Thanks for your quick answer. My Fujifilm X-Pro2 is supported but some of my lenses are not, including the 60mm Macro, the 55-200 zoom, and my 56mm f1.2. I’m wondering if they are on your roadmap? The new 80mm Macro will be released at the end of this month and that will be another to add, since it’s the first with 1:1 capabilities. I also know that keeping up with all the lenses for all the major manufacturers must be truly a nightmare!

        Thanks in advance.

          Hi Christin,

          No problem. If the lenses are not already supported, we will need sample files before we can start developing. If you have images taken with a camera/lens combo that isn’t supported by Exposure, we’d love it if you would send us a few of them to use to development. That would be perfect. Simply send our support team a ticket with a description of the camera/lens used to capture the RAWs with a few images attached. Here’s a link to start that process.

          The full list of supported lenses is not up-to-date on our website. Exposure X3 does have lens correction support for the Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro, the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS, and the Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R. Have you taken the trial version of Exposure X3 for a spin? You can use it free for a whole month.

    Hello Jimmy,
    I have exposure x2 snap art and Blow up. If I upgrade to to exposure x3 will snap art and blow up upgrade as well, how do I go about this. Thanks Jan

      Hi Jan,

      Because you already own an older version of the Exposure Bundle, you only need to purchase the Exposure X3 upgrade. You already own current versions of Blow Up 3 and Snap Art 4, which are included in the bundle. Owners of all three current products can download the Exposure X3 Bundle installer to take advantage of its integrated functionality.
