Excellent light shaper

I use the iOS apps from this dev and as someone else wrote, I couldn’t wait to have this Pro version on my desktop. Not disappointed! High quality effects with very satisfying amounts of control for customizing - go to the website and look at the user manual. A truly creative tool that allows me to design exactly the light I want then paste the effect as a layer into PS, where I can go on with my workflow and apply the light shaping layer any way I like since it isn’t baked into the original photo. (It’s also a stand alone and you can apply the effect to your base phote in app if you want to.) I really love working with it. It’s an endless source of innovative compositional elements that can add a lot of depth to your work or solve problems in some shots. Thanks for an excellent app!

Wonderful App

After using the IOS version for several weeks, I decided to give the Mac version a try…and I am glad I did! Beautifully and intuitively laid out, with a wide range of customizable effects, the possibilities of the app seem only to be limited by one's imagination. I've experienced no issues of "crashing" (early 2012 iMac running Mountain Lion), even when testing a large number of effects on a single photo. This will be one of my "go to" image effects apps going forward.

Sophisticated Lens Flares — First Rate

I've been playing with this wonderful app, and have been amazed at the sophisticated lens flares that are possible. Most important is that they are highly configurable and can be stacked in layers. I like that I can export the flare layers into Photoshop with a simple copy and paste. The GUI is well thought out, easy to use, and appears quite stable. This is an easy no-brainer purchase.
