Lume is the most advanced light painting app in the App Store. Draw mind blowing light paintings on your iPad!

+ featured on buzzfeed, creativebloq, fstoppers....
+ check for video and infos

Instead of using a camera and real lights you can simply draw with your fingers and get beautiful light paintings with the most natural quality around.


You don‘t need to be a talented painter to have fun with this app. Even very simple drawings like a heart or some words look brilliant right away.

Simply create a personal birthday invitation with it, tell your partner how much you love them or create a light painting protrait of yourself to use as your facebook profile picture. Or simply draw sketches for planning classic light paintings.


Even though we (LICHTFAKTOR) have done a lot of classic light painting we were keen to see if and how it‘s possible to do light paintings on the iPad as the apps available were not convincing.

We put all our knowledge and experience in this App and developed a very powerful and high quality 3D brush render engine with the most natural look available.

All the light brushes in this App are based on our real lights used in our works. As a result the drawings created with Lume have the same brilliance as natural light paintings. We are really proud of the result and hope that you will like Lume as much as we do.


We are photographers, dancers, light designers, performers, creatives and technicians. We have been working together for ten years. We founded Lichtfaktor because we share the same visions. We love new ideas. We like to create large-scale works. We want to surprise people.

For us a high quality of the light sources and drawings has always been a very important challange. We have experimented with numerous different light sources, modified them and applied all kind of optical filters and lenses.

We are really proud of the result and hope that you will like Lume as much as we do.

Customer Reviews

Extremely nice, for free or even cheap

This is one of those 'small' apps that you'll want to keep around ... and one day you'll be trying to do something and it'll hit you: "Lume is exactly what I need here!"

Ultra-simple to use - I wish it had just a few more controls to allow editing of brush parameters - and even asking me to review the app for a free brush? This app is sweet enough that I don't mind at all.

Summary: get it while you can!

Creative fun

Creative fun for me and my 2 year old grandson. Let your imagination go free while using "light" to create your own masterpieces as well as add effects to your existing photos. Would love to see more brushes added.

Great idea, looking forward to future updates

Love the concept! I've tried to learn to do with with a DSLR and a light stick, with limited success. This lets me do it after the fact. Looking forward to more options and effects.
