DXP is a photo compositing app which lets you create multiple exposure effects. Two updates to DXP have been released within the week. Combined, both updates make DXP a very powerful multiple exposure/layering app.

The biggest new feature of the DXP 2.0 update released last week was full 5 MP resolution support on an iPhone 4. The new 2.1 update just released restores the mask import function which went missing in the 2.0 update.

DXP is a powerful layering app which can do much more than recreate the look of double exposures. Images can be composited together using any of 18 transparency operations — multiply, screen, overlay, soft light, hard light, and many others. If you’re familiar with Photoshop’s blending modes, you’ll be right at home with DXP’s effects. Like Photoshop, you can also adjust the transparency of the top layer from 0-100%. And unlike the very good Backgroundz and other apps in this class, you can easily layer and blend more than 2 images together. I got to five images before things started to look really muddy and unusable.

The biggest complaint previously about DXP was its low resolution. This has been fixed in the 2.0 and 2.1 updates. The app is fairly fast for what it does, too.

There is a free version of DXP, but there’s no comparison. DXP Free saves at 600×800 low resolution and has far fewer features and options than the new update of the full version.

DXP 2.1 is a great update. If you’ve been holding off buying the app because of the low resolution in previous versions, it’s no longer an issue. DXP is a fast, easy and powerful tool to create Photoshop-like layer blending and Multiple Exposure effects.

It’ll still work on older iPhones, too! DXP works on any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 3.1.3 or newer. It’s $1.99 in the App Store.
