Alien Skin Software announces the Exposure X Bundle

Exposure-X-Product-ShotAlien Skin Software, Raleigh, NC, introduced the Exposure X Bundle, a software collection integrating three award-winning Alien Skin photo editing apps: Exposure X with the Snap Art and Blow Up apps. Photographers can use it as a standalone product and enjoy the app integration, or they can run each app separately as a plug-in with Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop.

“The Exposure X Bundle exemplifies our core design philosophy: making it easy for photographers to create beautiful images that inspire and delight,” says Finley Lee, CEO, Alien Skin. “Photographers can now manage their entire photography workflow from within Exposure X and create amazing inspired looks with all three integrated tools. And, the new Exposure X Bundle adds real savings to any photographer’s budget by offering a 57 percent savings over buying each of the three programs separately.”

 

The Exposure X Bundle is available now from www.alienskin.com for $199. Owners of one or more of the apps in the Exposure X Bundle can purchase the bundle for $119 USD.

Condé introduces Reveal-S™ sublimation transfer media for cotton

CondeRevealSmediaCondé Systems, Mobile, Ala, introduced Reveal-S: an innovative self-weeding sublimation transfer film from Vivid Chemical allowing sublimators to decorate light-colored cotton or blended fabrics using almost any ink-jet sublimation printer. A true technology breakthrough, Reveal-S media’s patent-pending smart polymer coating selectively releases bold color from areas on the film where a medium- to high-density of ink is present. Once heat activated, sublimation inks printed onto Reveal-S media chemically combine with the film’s smart coating polymer network and then adhere to the garment. Areas of the smart coating with no sublimation ink stay on the Reveal-S film and do not transfer to the garment, making Reveal-S the first self-weeding ink jet sublimation-to-cotton product. No physical trimming of your design from the film is required. Unlike sublimating to polyester which actually dyes the fabric, Reveal S makes sublimating to cotton a surface decorating technology similar to screen printing or DTG printing. Reveal-S film is for clip art, line art, and vector art designs only and is not suitable for photographic reproduction. Light colors will not activate the smart polymer coating on the film and should be replaced with colors providing a higher density of ink.
