Alien Skin Software has always been a familiar name to photoshop designers and retouch artists. Exposure X offers photographers new tools to produce stunning new images from their photos.  The workflow pipeline makes it easy for anyone to quickly access multiple options for their post production decisions.

As a longtime digital designer and Photoshopper, I can appreciate that it can be difficult to jump into new applications for new users.
I also know that some people want to get more than what a simple mobile device can offer.  People want to make their best photography better, and could probably get much more from their images with a few strong tools.

Alien Skin Exposure X offers a non-destructive way to create new looks with your photos. 
"Non-destructive" means that you're never deleting the original by adding new effects or color decisions to the image.

So go ahead, play.  Get creative.

You can use a free trial of Exposure X from their website: https://app.alienskin.com/trial/product/26

 If you're ready to purchase the software and set to edit all of your holiday photography, it's only $149 to start.  This gives you a huge range of options to make your pictures look stunning.  If you want a little more, BLOW UP and SNAP ART are available in the bundle for only $50 more, at $199.  (*Blow Up is a great resize function that helps up-sample images better than simple bicubic interpolation. *Snap Art is a fun filter, but I don't see much use for it)

HERE'S THE REAL DEAL: The Exposure X2 software can be used on its own.  There are a bunch of great tools to help you keep busy with your Thanksgiving photos all the way through the new year.  But the Exposure X software can also function as a plugin for Adobe's Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop.  So once you're ready to move to the Creative Cloud software, you can take your Exposure skills with you.
