You can do anything with Photoshop? Not quite. Hugh John checks out 'Exposure'
Does any company produce Photoshop filters as well as Alien Skin Software? The US company has produced Photoshop plug-ins for almost 20 years and now boasts a range of products that includes enlargement (Blow Up), retouching (Image Doctor), focusing (Bokeh), painterly effects (Snap Art) and photographic effects (Exposure).
Even in this exalted company, however, Exposure still commands attention. It’s both a powerful, easily applied filter and an excellent learning tool for any student wishing to discover and learn more about analogue photographic effects. You know, that old-school stuff’ where enthusiasts locked themselves in a dark room with a red light and paddled about in trays of whiffy chemicals for hours on end.
