The tools for drawing out lighting strikes & lens flares look really fun. Of the whole suite PetaPixel writes,
Optics is described as “the definitive digital toolbox for photos,” but what it offers is maybe better described as a comprehensive mishmash of filters, presets, lighting effects and lens flares… with some masking technology thrown in for good measure. It’s honestly hard to tell what Optics is primarily meant to do, because it does so much.
Here, check it out:
