What's New in Version 3.0

First of all, a big thanks to everyone for checking out LensFlare Studio. We are excited to announce this exciting update adding some great new features. We've heard your feedback and have worked hard to make this the best version of LensFare Studio yet!


Zooming! Many have asked for this and we have delivered. Now you can zoom in to place effects more precisely. Zoom with mouse wheel, zoom buttons, or with two fingers on trackpad, just like scrolling. When zoomed in, use the mouse right-click to drag your photo around. Left click still sets effect position of course.

64 bit color
We've re-written the core engine to utilize full 64 bit color throughout the entire pipeline (also known as 16 bit RGBA color). Each RGBA color component is 16bit. Even with regular 8bit color documents, the flares and gradients will be smoother with the internal 64 bit processing. Loading 16bit color documents preserves the full range of 16bit color.
Many of the effects have been upgraded to take advantage of 64 bit color.

LensFlare Studio now preserves all of your photo metadata such as exif and gps data. This is something I've wanted to add for a while, but wanted to get everything right with this and the 64 bit color update.

Three new film grain textures added under the Lens Textures tab.

As a bonus, we've also added a few new effects such as Anamorpheus, Digital Sun, and Morpheus.

If you run into any issues, please email us at and we'll respond quickly. We can't reply to reviews in the app store so email is the best way to get support.

Customer Reviews

Just amazing~

This app was already pretty incredible….but now with version 3, they pushed it many notches higher. I have used pretty much all the lens flare apps since Knoll Lens Flare Pro so long ago, and this app is designed with a perfect little interface, great flares and elements….and has helped me make some of the best images I could ever do. Great job guys…. I teach a lot of night sky workshops and I recommend this to all of my students.

This app is simply outstanding !! Now if the developers would make all of their other apps compatable with the Mac, it would be a 10 star ratting.
