Analog-Film-Simulation und Linsen-Effekte: Erste Infos zu "Exposure 3" und "Bokeh 2"

Alien Skin Software Gründer Jeff Butterworth gibt im Mai-Newsletter des US-amerikanischen Photoshop-Plug-in-Spezialisten eine kleine Preview über die in Kürze veröffentlichten Tools "Exposure 3" (Juni 2010) und "Bokeh 2" (Spätsommer 2010).

Details zu "Exposure 3"

Jeff Butterworth: "We have continued Exposure’s mission, which is to make the techniques of film photography available to modern photographers. We carefully researched the science, but more importantly, we did the anthropological research of spending time with photographers who actually used these films and techniques in the old days. Ok, maybe we’re not really anthropologists, but I think that studying the photographers helped as much as studying the chemistry and math.

Exposure can now simulate some tricky looks such as Technicolor’s odd brilliant colors and early Kodachrome’s brown skin tones. Vintage processes like Autochrome, Calotype, and Daguerreotype look more authentic because of the new vignette, dust, and scratches features. Lo-Fi enthusiasts will love the Lomo and Holga presets that simulate cross processing and use the new vignette and lens blur features to simulate cheap plastic lenses. Now there are over 500 presets, with some entirely new categories and plenty added throughout the existing categories.

There are some frequently requested technical features in this upgrade, including Lightroom and 64-bit Photoshop CS5 support. The user interface has been completely rewritten and one result is that the preview updates much faster now.

The upgrade will be $99 for owners of any previous version of Exposure. Free upgrades will automatically be sent to purchasers of Exposure 2 who purchased in April 2010 or later."

Details zu "Bokeh 2"

Jeff Butterworth: "Terence Tay is kicking butt on finishing Bokeh 2 and I am confident that it will be out late this summer. Remember that if you purchase it now (April 2010 or later) then we will send you the upgrade for free. It is too early to show off Bokeh 2, but here (d.h. im Newsletter, die Red.) are some fun uses of Bokeh 1."
