Alien Skin Exposure 2
Alien Skin recently updated Exposure 2 - its set of Photoshop plugins designed to emulate a number of different film effects such as grain and infrared. Exposure can simulate the looks of several popular types of film, such as Portra, Velvia, Kodachrome, Polaroid, and TRI-X, while also having presets of discontinued film stocks such as Agfa Scala, GGAR 500, and Kodak EES. Grain can be customized by controlling sharpness, color variation and intensity value throughout the entire tonal range, with the grain automatically adjusting to the image size so that consistent results are obtained across any camera model. Alien Skin is selling Exposure 2 through its website, available as a Universal Binary for $250.
Exposure has over 300 presets, including black and white conversion, and push/cross processing. Other effects consist of creating colorcasts, softening, and contrast tweaking.
