Exposure Software Announces Exposure X7, Complete Image Editing Software for Creative Photographers



Exposure X7 features intelligent masking, selectable workspaces, unified crop and transform tools, improved noise reduction, improved color fidelity, and more

Raleigh, NC (September 28, 2021) – Exposure Software, previously known as Alien Skin Software, today announced the release of Exposure X7, the latest version of their award-winning RAW photo editor for creative photographers. Exposure is a complete standalone image editor that handles every step in a photo editing workflow. It includes plug-in support that enables Exposure’s advanced editing and creative effects in Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom.

Exposure X7 includes a new masking tool that makes it easy to separate a subject from the background. Photographers draw a rough border in just a few clicks to indicate the selected area and Exposure’s intelligent algorithm creates a precise mask. The selected area can be refined at any time to adjust the mask.

“The new masking tool in Exposure X7 provides a lightning fast method for precisely selecting regions in a photo,” said Finley Lee, CEO of Exposure Software. “This continues our mission to give photographers innovative tools that enable new creative possibilities.”

Exposure X7 introduces workspaces for organizing the panels needed for a particular task. This enables users to more easily focus on a specific step in their workflow. Included in Exposure are built-in layouts for culling, editing, and retouching, and photographers can easily create new workspaces customized for their needs. Additionally, Exposure adds quick navigation popovers to easily switch between workspaces or jump to other panels in this workspace.

Exposure X7 unifies the crop and transform functions into a single easy-to-use panel. This streamlined interface enables easier modifications for simple crops as well as detailed transform adjustments. Additionally, new composition guides have been added – golden ratio, golden spiral, golden triangle, and diagonal.


Defective pixel removal is now available for raw photos, to automatically detect and remove single-pixel artifacts caused by defects in a camera sensor. Photographers can adjust the removal strength to achieve the best results.

Additional enhancements to Exposure include the following:

  • ●  More faithful color reproduction when using custom DCP color profiles
  • ●  Improved color fidelity with DNG files
  • ●  Fine texture noise can be added to recover detail with aggressive noise reduction.About Exposure
