Volby vykreslení záře

Slider and input box allows you to reduce glow opacity (0-100).

Paint mode

You can choose between four modes:


In this mode, the glow covers the image without taking into account what is beneath.


Pixel RGB values of glow are added to RGB values of the corresponding pixels in the image. Colors get lighter and white areas may appear.


Light/Dark areas of glow enhance corresponding light/dark areas of image.


Dark areas of image are enlightened by corresponding light areas of glow. Imagine two slides projected onto the same screen.

By clicking on the rectangular buttons, you can develop a long list of gradients. % gradients belong to the Editor.

Radial gradient

The selected gradient is drawn radially, from center to edge.

Angular gradient

The selected gradient develops around center, counter-clockwise, starting from three o'clock if the Rotation parameter is set to 0. Radial and angular gradients are combined according to the Multiply mode: light areas are enhanced and colors are mixed according to CMYK color system (that of your printer).

Angular size gradient

This is a gradient of radius size which develops angularly. Radius is controlled according to gradient Luminosity: if luminosity is zero (black), the radius is 0%. If luminosity is 100% (white), the radius is also 100%.

Size (%)

Sets size of glow in percent (0-200).


Sets the origin of the angular gradient (-180 +180).

Hue rotation

Sets glow color, according to the HSV color circle (-180 +180). (Cf. The triangle color selector.) Paprsky

# of Spikes

This option determines the number of spikes (1-300) but also their texture.

Spike thickness

When spikes get wider (1-100), they look like flower petals. Druhá záře

The random generator will use this value as a seed to generate random numbers. You can use the same value to repeat the same random sequence several times.


When you click on this button, you produce a random seed that will be used by the random generator. It is each time different.
