First of all, you have to understand that this app requires you to take some time to understand how it works. Because it's so processor-intensive, you have to be a little patient. You also can't expect to rescue a bad picture with the addition of light effects. When I first tried Light, I knew I'd have to come back to it when I had time to really get to know it. Now I can say this is easily one of my favorite photography apps. There are dozens of lights to choose from, and infinite angles, sizes and parmeters to choose from, making this a tool for people who love to get lost in creating art for the joy of it. For instance, you can spend an hour on one photo, saving a version, then trying something different, ending up with 20 versions to choose from. However, if you are not known for your attention span, maybe this is not for you. For me, I'll be watching closely to see what Digital Film Tools will come up with next.

Would it be possible to reverse the patterns to create shadows? Typically an object's shadow, tree leaves for example, is what we would expect to be cast on a wall. Update: I discovered a way to get the effect I wanted. Since, for example Winter Tree, is a solid object and not a source of light, one would expect its shadow to be cast on the subject; but the gobo does the reverse—it casts the tree as a source of light. A number of the presents act this way, putting shadows where light should be and light where shadows should be. My solution is to use another photo app to reverse the image I want to work with, turning it into a negative. Then I apply the troublesome gobo, save the image and then go back to the other app to reverse it back to a positive image. There are a number of photo apps that will make your image a negative; chances are you already have one.

This app is really great but you have to be creative to begin with. It won't magically change bad photos into good ones. If you have an eye for photography, cinematography and lighting, "Light" is a great app for experimenting with light. What you did virtually can be applied in the real world, and can be an awesome learning tool. On the flip side, the app is a bit processor intensive and crashes once in a while, but the bottom line is that this is a great app from a company that has a solid reputation in the industry. Great job.

Just bought this app, and it's a beaut. What makes it so cool is the subtle way the lighting wraps around the subject. The light actually bends where it should, with proper perspective as it curves around cheeks, shoulders, etc. How does this effect work? Does it use luminance to guess which objects are "front" and "back"? I'm a Photoshop dummy. Is there a comparable filter in PS that does the same trick? If so, I can't find it. So here's a nifty $1.99 filter that outperforms the world's leading digital photography app. My only regret is that it's limited to the iPhone's small photo sizes. Wish I could get it on the desktop!

Not sure where the lower numbers come from, but this little tool is awesome. You play with light and adjust it to maximize the impact of your photos. I'm a little amazed that it works so well! I was up and running with Light in just a few minutes. It's not the end-all or be-all of iPhone photo apps, but it's a good tool to add to your arsenal. At two bucks, it's well worth it. The only thing I would recommend is the ability to see before and after the effect is applied.

Light Description
1678 chars

Light can be added to a scene where none existed before just as if you were adding light at the time of photography. Realistic lighting and shadow is introduced using digital versions of the gobo library

created by Gamproducts. For more information on Gamproducts gobos, please visit their website at

Gobos, or patterns, are widely used by lighting designers in theatre, film, photography and television to create atmosphere, project scenery, and generally enhance the visual impact of their lighting. Normally used in front of lights during photography, these same exact patterns can be applied digitally to the entire image or inside a selected area. Gobos from the Gamproducts collection are included with Light and are arranged into the following categories: Breakups, Foliage, Lights, Sky and Windows.

Don’t settle for bland photos. Spice up your images with Light, just like Hollywood cameraman and photographers do. See the Light!
