When the Exposure plug-in runs from Photoshop, it automatically applies the last used preset to the image. This includes any layers or brushing effects.
To clear this, press the Reset button or Control (Command) + R to remove all presets, layers, and adjustments. After that you can apply a new preset.
Starting with Exposure X2, you can set the plug-in to open to the base image each time.
- Open Exposure from Photoshop.
- Go to Preferences > General.
- Uncheck the box for "Automatically apply previous settings."
- Close Preferences. The next time your open from Photoshop, Exposure will display the image as it was sent.
