Exclamation Serif launches PhotoPlus X5!

It’s finally here! PhotoPlus X5 is now available!

Offering some fantastic brand new features for enhanced usability, faster editing and some great free bonus items, PhotoPlus X5 is the latest edition of our Photo Editing software, released today!

As well as the features you’ll already know and enjoy like HDR, Raw Studio, PhotoFix and Black and White Studio, PhotoPlus X5 benefits from new intuitive tools and features, making it the most powerful and feature-packed yet:

PhotoPlus Organizer
For faster and more efficient organisation of your photo collections, Serif have built a brand new organiser for PhotoPlus X5 which replaces AlbumPlus. The organiser helps photographers keep control of their growing image collection faster and easier than ever before offering a whole host of sub-features to ensure the albums are easily navigable including: Image Stacks, which allows the grouping of similar pictures and Smart Albums, which automatically update to include new images added to a collection. It also offers extensive EXIF support to ensure all camera settings information is recorded for future reference and is easily viewable alongside images in the new Metadata tab. PhotoPlus Organizer also lets you display your photos on a Google map of the world, and allows you to upload your images directly to Facebook or Flickr.

Vibrance Adjustment
An intelligent saturation tool for brightening images without losing the natural skin and hair tones of the photo subjects.

Clarity Filter
Make seemingly in-focus photos crystal clear straight away.

Layers improvements
Clip to Layer - This feature allows users to clip any effect to the layer below.
Show only current layer - to allow quick isolation, great for when you're working on more complicated projects.

Blend Modes
PhotoPlus blend modes now include Crossfade, Lighter colour, Darker colour and Add for even more creative possibilities.With speed improvements to the core engine of PhotoPlus X5, blending and changes to blend modes are now virtually instant, so artwork can be created faster than ever before.

Adjustments tab improvements
Presets combo
Reset button
Apply to layer button
HSL Adjustment has colour swatches and a dropper tool
Curves adjustment has an Add Point tool
Levels and Curves adjustments have Auto Levels and Auto Contrast

Alpha Channels
Selections can now be saved, loaded and edited via the channels tool

Refreshed UI
For a clean, smart look.

Bonus Items
PhotoPlus X5 not only comes with PanoramaPlus X4 which allows you to create seemless jaw-dropping panoramas automatically, but it ALSO comes with Photo Projects - a brand new product that normally retails at £19.99 which allows you to create beautiful photobooks, cards and more with a generous selection of styles with drag and drop layouts and a user-friendly interface. Perfect for gifts, portfolios and keepsakes.

For a limited period only, customers who purchase PhotoPlus X5 will also receive a free mini tripod - a handy little accessory to keep with your camera at all times, for when you need help to steady your shots.
