So, how to efficiently use Photoshop has become an issue that has to be considered for numerous photographers. While Alien Skin Exposure is slowly being recognized as the best solution to this problem, and it has become the best choice for more and more photographers.

With Exposure, you just need to open the photos you want to process, and preview the film effects, then immediately preview and apply them in real time, extremely simple.
