maboleth: All I know is that I'm still using Exposure 5 much more than E7, because they ruined the user interface.
What is it you don't like about the Exposure UI now? In Exposure X the UI will be completely configurable if that helps.
ZeneticX: I'm really tempted by this so I went and check out its feature thoroughly... then I hit a bummer, there's no histogram display, at all!
That's definitely on our road map. It will be coming. I just can't say exactly when.
BelePhotography: still OS X only?
We have never been OS X only. Exposure will be the same in all aspects for both Mac and Windows customers. They will both be available when we release it before the end of the year at the same time.
Sannaborjeson: Lightroom already does non-destructive editing and catalogs.And RNI All Films 3 for Lightroom already contains all the film profiles you could imagine, from Kodachromes to Portras. This combo is a perfect film emulation.
Why the hell Alien Skin doing what already exists for ages instead of innovating?
Yes, LR does catalogs. What we have done is scrapped the idea of a catalog all together. Exposure X will not use a catalog, therefor you never have to worry about Exposure X losing track of your files like a catalog based system would, if you moved files outside of the program. If you move an image outside of Exposure, we see it when you launch Exposure again and transfer all your edits with the file. There are also new features that allow you to keep your files and edits synced across multiple computers so you never have to copy files between computers again. There are quite a few innovative things in Exposure X including being much much faster than other programs like LR. You never have to worry about what module you are in...you can do anything from anywhere...speeding up your workflow dramatically. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have.
Maklike Tier: Okay, so where is my free upgrade? On the site there's no indication it's free for us E6 users - if you go to the $69 upgrade section, it says this is the option for E6 users. Which one is it?
Hi Maklike, Please visit http://support.alienskin.com/anonymous_requests/new and submit a support request. We will be back in the office on Monday and will be able to handle your issue. We had a major email issue that caused some people to not receive their free upgrades. We resent everything on Thursday. We apologize for the confusion and trouble this caused you and Carl.
Basically anyone who paid money for Exposure 6, either through a new purchase or through a purchased upgrade to 6, will get Exposure 7 for free. Those that got the upgrade to Exposure 6 as a "free" upgrade from Exposure 5, would need to purchase the upgrade to Exposure 7.
Carl bcn: Since october they have been saying that the update to version 7 would be free for anyone who had paid for Exposure 6 (via purchase or upgrade from june 10th). But this press release says nothing about upgrades, and while I did upgrade to Exposure 6 and paid for such upgrade, I have not received any free upgrade to Exposure 7. I emailed them at support yesterday, but no reply so far.
Anybody in a similar situation? Thanks.
Hi Carl, and everyone else. Basically anyone who paid money for Exposure 6, either through a new purchase or through a purchased upgrade to 6, will get Exposure 7 for free. Those that got the upgrade to Exposure 6 as a "free" upgrade from Exposure 5, would need to purchase the upgrade to Exposure 7.
