Light Rays. Capturing real light rays takes a lot of skill and the correct conditions. Shine allows realistic looking light rays to be added after the scene has been photographed.

Lens Flares. Modern cameras and lenses often contain elements to eradicate lens flares. Shine enables photographers to add lens flares to a photo during post processing. Most of Shine's lens flares are based upon real lenses to produce a more natural lens flare look.

Professional-Level Functionality. Shine offers a great deal of control over light rays and lens flares to enable a photographer to add in realistic or unrealistic effects. Version 1.1 reduced rendering time by nearly half and improves memory usage by a third. The refactoring for the latest version has allowed Shine users to apply these effects, and more, to images over a 100 megapixels in size. Being able to output the images as a Photoshop document allows photographers to add Shine into their workflow.
