Lens Flare plugin

Recommended Posts

Bring back the 90's with lens flares everywhere... ok perhaps not, but if you want to brighten a picture feel free to use my little plugin (thanks goes to the Codelab guys again in making this so easy).

Download Plugin:





You may also like to take a peek at my selection obscurer plugin too, I find these two kind of handy in tidying up images.

Are you aware that MadJik has a plugin called Lens Flare? You'll find it here: MadJik' all plugins

Yes. I just wanted to head off a potential naming conflict :)

So we don't confuse forum users - can you please place the updates directly in the first post of this thread?

Many users will not see the most recent release if it is buried down in post #8 :)

Good work! - love the new name - perhaps a trousery icon to match!

I couldn't get the 'lens artifact scale' to do anything though?

Perhaps you could add the option to take the colour from the primary color (like the blue option), or do a rainbow option (colour aberation).

Just ideas to play with though - thanks for sharing.

Don't use it on a transparent layer.

This is an amazing plugin. Works extremely well and produces amazing results.
The only thing I wish was in there was the ability to change the colour. The only modes there are "Standard" and "Blue". It could be cool if I could select "Blue" and then change the colour to produce a red version of the "Blue" lens flare.

Amazing work. You seriously cannot go wrong with this plugin (unless you apply a lens flare on a transparent background).
Hope @sradforth sees this.
