Many presets have been improved and new ones added. Visit our examples page for a sampling of some of the hundreds of presets.
New textures help you recreate historical photographic processes like Cyanotype, Lith printing and Wet Plate Photography.
Lo-Fi toy camera presets are now more realistic using light leaks and organic textures.
What’s Already Great
Exposure’s grain is carefully researched and realistic, unlike the digital speckles rendered by other software. Like actual grain, it clumps and is strongest in the midtones. Grain size scales with your image size, just like real photographic enlargement.
Exposure supports a non-destructive workflow, making experimentation easy. Effects in Photoshop are rendered on a new layer, leaving your original image untouched. In Photoshop, Exposure can be run as a Smart Filter for easy tweaking of the effect after it is created. Batch processing is supported with actions in Photoshop and through tight integration in Lightroom.
Exposure takes advantage of multiple processors and multiple cores in order to run fast on modern computers. The more cores, the faster Exposure runs.
