A security change in macOS Catalina prevents these versions from accessing your files. These versions were discontinued before Catalina was introduced and are no longer being developed.
If you own one of these versions and use standalone mode there are two options:
- Upgrade to the current Exposure version.
- Do not upgrade to macOS Catalina.
Some older products my show a warning the first time they run after updating to Catalina. Catalina added authorization requirements that were not included in some older versions. Use these steps to bypass the warning.
- Start by opening your System Preferences and clicking the Security & Privacy option. Leave it in the background.
- Run Exposure from PS.
- When you get the warning, go back to the Security & Privacy dialog. You should see an option for OK. Click it to proceed.
- You may need to quit out of the original dialog and launch Exposure again but it should work the next time.
