Legendary Service

When you purchase Exposure, you benefit from using a stable, reliable product. One that you can count on for any type of photography workflow.

We’ve been developing award-winning, advanced image processing software since 1993, and are known for our industry-leading software and fantastic customer support.

Time after time, you guys invent amazing software I didn’t know I needed, and then once I try it, I find I can’t live without it!

Dean White, Pocomoke City, MD

Exposure Software’s great customer service says a lot about their company and software. I appreciate their helpful support and attitude towards solving any issues I have.

With such wonderful customer service I’ll be a customer for years to come!

Press Mentions

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

Photoshop User

“The Polygon tool is special in that it allows you to create an outline that guides Exposure’s border sensitivity and gets results much faster than with any other selection tool I’ve ever used.”


“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.”


“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.”

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.”
