Press Mentions

To learn what industry photographers and journalists think of Exposure, check out these recent reviews.

Digital Photography Review

” I find myself impressed by Exposure X6, just as I was by its predecessor. At a relatively low cost and with a perpetual license which frees you from being nickel-and-dimed to death by subscription fees, it offers great image quality and a very generous feature set.”

“Exposure is so versatile that it can quickly be picked up by those new to photo editing. Equally, professional photographers will find a fully-fledged editing suite to make their workflow as efficient as possible.”

“Exposure from [Exposure Software] does everything you’d expect from a high-end editor, things like PSD support, Mac and 64-bit Win compatibility, integration as a PS plug-in, etc., and it does everything fast.”

“Exposure is certainly very responsive, more so than Adobe’s other competitors. The new ability in Exposure to populate smart collections with keywords is a real, time-saving bonus.”
