Create stunning and realistic light ray effects quickly and easily. Known as volumetric lighting in computer graphics or crepuscular rays in atmospheric optics, this dramatic effect adds polish and style. Since the rays are only added to highlight areas, they have the effect of passing through objects and add a third dimensional quality. Add shafts of light streaming through clouds, rays filtering through a forest canopy, beams of light on a foggy night or rays shooting out from text. Rays adds a striking and dramatic quality to any image.

- Customize the color of the rays using a color picker
- Threshold control to specify where the rays will be visible
- Modify settings with sliders
- Control ray direction with an on-screen control
- Edit in portrait or landscape mode
- Integrated Help
- No arbitrary resolution limits
- Native retina support

Ratings and Reviews



I agree, it could benefit from an update with extra Rays. Depending on the colour chosen the rays are somewhat faded.
But, it’s still one of the best though.

Good but needs updating


Good apps but quite buggy and needs to be updated to support for iPhone X

Good, but only with the right kind of photo


It all depends on whether your photo has some defined points of light that the software can extrapolate the light volumes. Photos with uniform bright areas or too many light sources won't produce interesting pictures. A fair bit of tweaking will also be needed to get the best results. But for what it costs, it works pretty well. Use it with the app Lensflare or Lenslight to create some cool images. Verdict. Good, but needs a bit of work on the GUI to make it easier or more obvious how to get the result you want.
