Free photo lighting effects software

We've all taken photographs that we would be really happy with if only they had a bit more life to them. Sometimes the weather just won't play ball so when we want a nice blue sky or something a little more dramatic what we actually end up with on our photo is a flat sheet of white or grey. Light Artist allows you to create more interesting lighting effects to transform dull photographs.

Easy enhancements

Light Artist comes with a wide range of different lighting effects to suit all kinds of photographs. Its most obvious and effective application is in transforming skies which it can do using various lighting effects but also by applying different coloured filters to the image giving a blue cast for example or more of a sunset effect with a palette of warm colours. It is possible to add multiple light sources change the surface qualities of an image even apply a 3D relief effect to a picture. With the range of effects and possible applications the potential for creating many different effects in a single image is considerable.

Useful and fun

If you want to take a dull lifeless image and make it sing Light Artist might be just what you need. It can help bring back the light quality that you saw when you took the picture that was lost in translation by the lens.

Light Artist allows you to add realistic lighting effects to your photos. The app is designed to help you make your ordinary and undistinguished photos sunnier, romantic, or even gloomier if you want.

You can modify the light color, add multiple light sources, change the surface qualities of the image and add various ambient illumination effects. Using one of the image channels as the texture channel you can also add 3D relief to your images.
