LensFlare Studio for Mac OS

LensFlare Studio for Mac OSHere’s a cool tip recently posted to the LensFlare Studio Facebook page. It’s a quick and slick tip for using LensFlare Studio to add great-looking lens aberrations with Photoshop.

This is a Mac OS-only tip, not an iPhoneography tip per se. But LensFlare Studio was created by BrainFeverMedia, the same developer who gave us the excellent LensFlare, LensLight, and Alien Sky apps for iOS. >>>

LensFlare Studio is easy to use with Photoshop. Here’s how to add flares to your Photoshop projects:

1 – Select and copy a layer or photo in Photoshop – Cmd-C

2 – Paste into LensFlare Studio – Cmd-V. LensFlare Studio will auto-size to the pasted layer. Add flares!

3 – After adding flares, turn off Image Layer so you only see the flares.

4 – Do copy in LensFlare Studio – Cmd-C.

5 – Paste in Photoshop Cmd-V, which adds the flares layer to your Photoshop project. Set flare layer blend to Linear Dodge (Add).

That’s it!

LensFlare Studio is a Mac OS-only app. It brings the same great light effects from the iOS version to your Mac. You can choose from anamorphic lens flares, lighting effects, sci-fi flares, sunlight glare, and more. With over 100 effects, you can choose from lens flares, lighting effects, glares, bokeh, and more.

LensFlare Studio is $19.99 in the Mac App Store. Requirements: OS X 10.7 or later, 64-bit processor

There is also LensFlares, a “Lite” version for Mac OS with 15 lens filters. It runs $4.99 in the Mac App Store. |

Photoshop is, well… Photoshop.
