Alien Skin Software today announced the immediate availability of the Exposure 3 plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CS5. Exposure 3 is the latest version of the company’s plug-in that provides photographers with film simulation as well as a range of creative effects.
The first iteration of Exposure was mainly a film simulation tool allowing photographers to give their digital images the look of their favorite film emulsions. Exposure 3 adds the look of Lo-Fi cameras such as the Holga and Lomo, as well as vintage looks including Technicolor movie film and old Kodachrome that’s distressed with dust, scratches and vignettes to appear aged.
In addition to the new film styles, Exposure 3 will provide users with an improved interface, faster preview and hover help. The software offers over 500 presets that lets you give images a complex look with only a single click of the mouse. Hundreds of settings in all categories are new—including more films, color toning and aging.
Exposure 3 offers 64-bit support for Photoshop CS5 on both the Mac and Windows. The plug-in can also be installed in Adobe Lightroom without Photoshop needing to be installed too.
Exposure 3 is compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS3 or later, Adobe Lightroom 2 or later, Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 or later, and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X3. PC computers need to be running at least a Pentium 4 processor or compatible processor and Windows XP SP3 or later. Apple users must be running an Intel processor and Mac OS X 10.5 or later. A monitor with 1024 x 768 resolution or greater is required.
Alien Skin Exposure 3 sells for $249 for the full version, and upgrades from any previous version are $99.
