This tool is useful for creating a lighting effect in photos.  It is especially useful for bright areas in your image such as streetlights or sky.

Standard Controls

  • Type. Choose from 3 different options that affect characteristics of the glow.
  • Amount. The overall effect strength. If the Amount value is 0, then the effect is not applied. Move the slider to the right to increase Amount.
  • Brightness. Use this slider to control the brightness of the effect.

Advanced Controls

  • Smoothness. This controls the softness of the effect. A Higher value creates a gentler blend between the affected and unaffected areas of the image.
  • Warmth. Adjusts the hue of the effect towards the warm or cool end of the scale.
