Create cool light effects with Rays! FREE right now in the App Store!

Submitted by on August 9, 2012 – 12:25 pm 8 Comments

Rays is one of those “hidden gem” photo apps that lurks below the Top 200 list in the App Store. Rays lets you create stunning and realistic light ray effects quickly and easily.

Rays is FREE right now in the App Store for a limited time only. More info and a download link are after the jump. I highly recommend grabbing this app.

Rays adds beautiful ray effects similar to light passing through a cloud or fog. It does an excellent job of adding a very ethereal and dreamlike effect to your photos. The effects are well-rendered and look very natural.

Rays is extremely easy to use. The onscreen tools are easy to figure out with very little experimentation and play. You can easily place the “source of the rays using an unobtrusive onscreen target. It lets you customize the color of the rays using a color picker.

The app works great. It supports the full 3264×2448 pixel resolution of the iPhone 4S. It supports up to 2592×1936 pixels — that’s 5 megapixels and is the same resolution of the iPhone 4. (I inadvertently grabbed an old image to test. Sorry for the confusion. =M=)

Rays is normally $0.99 and I would recommend it at it’s regular price. For free, this is an essential download. Grab it now.

Rays is designed for both iPhone and iPad. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

This is a great freebie! Please share this post on Facebook and Twitter so that other iPhoneographers can take advantage of this discount, too. Hey, a buck’s a buck. Thanks!

      I’ve been using Rays for just over a month now after seeing some great images on Instagram that used it. It is simple and easy to use but you just have to make sure you don’t get carried away and overuse it ;)!

    You know at first I wasn't all that interested in the app, I thought, "Eh, rays of light, big deal". But after downloading the app and using it on a few pics in my camera roll, I am really having a lot of fun with it! Thank you for the review, I wouldn't have even bothered to try it otherwise. =) Great app!
