Intuitive Management

Exposure uses the same familiar folder structure as your computer, so you’ll feel right at home when managing your photo library.

You’ll enjoy a catalog-free workflow that’s fast, reliable, and uses disk space efficiently.

Exposure stores your edits alongside your images. So it’s easy to back up photos and edits simultaneously, move or rename images without losing your edits, and upload them to cloud storage. You can even edit on multiple computers and collaborate with other photographers and retouchers.

Efficient Organizing

You’ve got all the tagging and rating tools you need to efficiently organize photos, including stars, flags, and color labels.

No matter how large your photo library is, you can quickly find any image using Exposure’s extensive sorting and search tools. Want to find all images shot with a particular lens, on a particular day, at a particular f-stop? Done.

Seamless Transitions

Exposure puts everything you need onscreen, in a single user interface. Transition seamlessly between organizing, editing, and exporting. Exposure even features advanced creative effects and portrait retouching.

Accurate Processing

Exposure’s beating heart is its advanced rendering engine, which was built to handle the demanding task of accurate film emulation. Our exhaustive study of analog film — down to the subtleties of individual film grain — enables Exposure to simulate a variety of iconic film looks with unmatched precision. Exposure’s selection of tasteful presets spans the history of photography, then goes even further, offering new creative styles.
