Exposure Software is publishing sneak preview videos of Exposure X6, the next update of its all in one creative photography software. The best news is that if you bought Exposure X5 after July 15 2020, you will get the upgrade to Exposure X6 free.
Exposure X5 combines photo browsing, cataloguing and searching tools with non-destructive image editing tools and a wide array of creative and analog film effects and presets. It’s not unlike Lightroom, but with a much stronger focus on evocative and atmospheric effects, and recreations of film and darkroom processes that you can’t achieve in Lightroom.
Exposure X6 will have a series of new features and performance improvements to make it faster to use and capable of superior results.
• It will use GPU acceleration, making use of your computer’s graphics card to speed up image editing tasks, especially those which are quite processor intensive, like brushing on adjustments.
• A new Auto Enhance feature will let you apply any combination of White Balance, Exposure, Tone, Dynamic Contrast and Haze Level to one or more images automatically. It’s a very useful feature Exposure X has been missing until now.
• Improved Noise Reduction tools will use camera specific noise profiles and dedicated luminance and color noise corrections.
• Improved Shadow and Highlight adjustment tools will recover and enhance bright and dark tones in images in a more selective and intelligent fashion rather than simple tonal compression techniques.
• New Color editing and replacement tools will make it easier to swap or enhance specific colors in a photo.
• A new Haze Level slider looks as if it is designed to do a similar job to Lightroom’s Dehaze tool.
• There are new masking options to make it easier to see and visualize masks.
• It will also be possible to import images in Adobe’s generic DNG format in the way that Lightroom does, for those who want to work with a single image format.
There’s no official date yet for when Exposure X6 will arrive, but in the meantime, anyone who buys Exposure X5 (as of July 15 2020) will get the Exposure X6 update free.
