Using Multiple Monitors in Exposure

By | |Tutorials, Exposure|

Exposure’s support of multiple monitors enables you to double your photo editing workspace by adding a second screen. The main benefit of using more monitors is using all the available screen area. When using Exposure, a second screen enables you to display the grid, the editing docks, and the zoomed-in views at the same time. You can edit an image at full screen on one monitor and visually confirm that your adjustments are consistent with other photos you’ve already processed on the other.

Watch the video and learn how to use Exposure in a multiple monitor workflow. We’ll show you how to enable the second screen, how to move control docks to the secondary screen, and more.

    Multiple Display options alone would have justified an upgrade for me, it is fantastic and allows me to use X4 in the same way I use other apps, sorting on left and editing on the right screen.
    On my system, I need to have Full Screen selected on the Secondary Display or the screen won’t display correctly, any ideas on this?

      Thanks for commenting, Andrew. That behavior sounds strange. Let’s get you in contact with out support team about it. They’ll probably need more information about your computer and any screenshots if you have them. Here is a link to open a ticket.
