Alien Skin's Exposure 5 arrives

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, July 3, 2013

More creative fun with photos from Alien Skin software.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Alien Skin is out with a software package for PCs and Macs called Exposure 5.   It can work on its own or as an Adobe plug in to let you create a wide range of film effects and more with your photos.   Be warned, you’ll be spending a lot more time at your computer just having fun with what Exposure 5 can do.   Alien Skin Founder Jeff Butterworth…

“You can do very extreme things to photos with Exposure.  And if you look at our Web site, you’ll see some examples of a modern photo looks like it’s an old print.  It’s messed up and there’s scratches.   But it’s really important that I point out that our effects can be subtle too.  I think that the way a lot of our customers, maybe even most use exposure, is just to add a little bit of warmth or a little nuance here and there.”

It is simple but at the same time pretty sophisticated.  The price…about 200 dollars, upgrading from a previous version is half that.  And you can download a trial version for free from AlienSkin.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
