LensFlare is an app by BrainFeverMedia that allows you to add a wide variety of lens flares and a handful of textures to your image. The selection is quite impressive for the price. The best thing about LensFlare is its very easy to use. Touch where you want the flare to go, pinch with two fingers to adjust size, and twist with two fingers to rotate.
You can also adjust the brightness and color of the flare. Below that is the opacity slider for the texture if you add any to your image.
If you want to add more than one flare, tap on the 2nd icon from the right to pull up the screen below. Choose Render (add flare)…obviously. While we’re on this screen, I’ll add that you can also just save the flare(s) instead of the flare(s) on top of the image. I’ll show an example I made by mistake at the end.
Thats all there is to the app, its very easy with some cool textures that you’ll see in the examples below. These are sample images that come with the app so you can practice on good photos.
The flare and texture below were suppose to be applied to the boat image, but I must have pressed the wrong save button. This is what you get when you just save the flares.
Here is the promo video for LensFlare.
If you’re a fan of lens flares or you’re into doing some serious photo manipulation on your phone, then LensFlare is a must have. It’s really excellent at what it does and I think its a steal at this price. Having said that, I don’t think this app is for all photographers. I see it as a great tool for the more creative types.
Price: iPhone 0.99 iPad 2.99 (iPad version includes the LensLight app)
