This image by Andrea Livieri had three effect layers applied using Exposure’s gradients. A darkening layer was applied to the sky, a second darkening layer was applied to the sides of the image, and an orange color wash layer was added to the left side.

We’re expanding our monthly photo contest to Instagram, so more of you can participate. Previously, our monthly contest was held in the closed Exposure Users group on Facebook, and nobody could see the photo submissions except group members.

This month’s contest celebrates the release of Exposure X3! The theme is Glorious Gradients. Use the new gradient tools in Exposure to easily achieve a natural, seamless fade between two or more effects. You can learn more about how they work in our Local Adjustments video.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Follow @alienskinsoftware on Instagram or Facebook
  2. Post a photo to Instagram or Facebook featuring this month’s theme. The photo must be edited with Exposure X3. If you don’t own Exposure X3, you can use the trial version.
  3. Include the hashtags #exposurex3octobercontest and #alienskinphotocontest in the caption
  4. Entries will be accepted through October 24th, 2017

Images that adhere to the theme will have the best chances of winning. Creativity and technical merit will also be considered.

We’ll pick a grand prize winner and three runner up winners from the entries. Every winner will get a copy of Exposure X3, and the grand prize winner will be featured in our social media headers.

We look forward to seeing your excellent images!
