Alien Skin Software today announced the release of Exposure X3, their non-destructive RAW photo editor and organizer. Exposure is an award-winning photo editor that combines powerful organizational tools with gorgeous photo processing into a single intuitive solution. Exposure is also significantly faster than traditional photo editors.
Photographers can easily organize, edit, enhance, and export their photos using Exposure's efficient workflow. Its unique design streamlines image management and backups, and enables multi-computer and collaborative workflows that are not possible with traditional editing tools.

This latest version of Exposure introduces numerous creative enhancements.
Color and B&W toning enhancements give photographers greater control over their image adjustments. The side-by-side view provides an easy way to compare multiple images, or to audition multiple presets on a single image. Linear and radial gradient tools enable a natural, seamless fade between two or more effects. Adjustable borders include grunge and wet plate looks.
There are powerful new organizing tools, as well.
Virtual copies enable photographers to edit multiple variations of a single photo, without taking up additional disk space. Exposure's intuitive keywords interface enables photographers to add descriptive tags to their photo, making it easy to organize photos around themes and to create keyword sets. The advanced collections tools help them quickly and easily group their images, no matter where they appear on their computer.
Additional enhancements include the following:
- New presets that feature linear/radial shapes
- More borders, light effects, and overlay blend modes.
- Flexible watermark capability on exported images
- Numerous speed enhancements
"Exposure gives photographers all the tools they need for professional photo editing, freeing them from relying on multiple apps to complete their workflow. Exposure's speed helps them produce beautiful images extremely quickly," said Alien Skin CEO Finley Lee. "From capture to creativity, Exposure is the fastest way for photographers to bring their vision to life."
