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

Customer Reviews


In pre-iPad days, an elegant effect like this would have cost a hundred times more. To get the most out the app, use it with a high contrast image. For example, capture white text on a black background and place the Rays source behind the text. Light will stream forth and the dark areas cast shadows. Works very well with abstract geometric shapes, too.

I really like this app!

I use a lot of photo apps, and downloaded this one only because it was cheap and I like to play with different effects. I have to say that this app does for light what no other app I've yet seen does. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Seems like a manipulative update

Why not update the app from iOS 6?
