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

I’ve been using this app for a few yrs. now. I have pics that have been beautifully enhanced by right placement of the light rays. Can really make all of the difference in an average photo when the rays make it pop. It adds a mystical look also. I’m impressed by this app. Don’t hesitate to get it if you enjoy being creative with the sky in your scenic photos. Granted you can’t apply it to every photo depending on what you shoot or time of day, but you will know what pics to apply it to. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😊

Rays control

I like the app that gives me the rays. I wish though there is a way to control the amount of rays, like 180, 90, or 45 degree of rays not always 360 degree. And if there is a control of the amount of strands and the size of filament of the rays, not spread out evenly. Because in reality the rays appear long, short and/or thin and thick filaments.

A Favorite App!

I love using this in photos! It is really spectacular when just using it in a very subtle sense. Kinda like HDR, use sparingly and enhance the photo!
