Lensflares without filters by Ranarh Lensflares without filters by Ranarh

Lensflares are wonderful, but the ones filters produce get really old really fast. So here's a small set of instructions how to create them by hand. If I forgot anything or you want more detail, let me know. And I'd be happy to see what kind of lensflares you make.

Very useful. A suggestion; You need to create an HTML page with that content and those images and put in on your journal, like this example: yereverluvinuncleber.deviantar…

As it is an image it is inaccessible to search engines so it will never be flagged as being a useful resource on Google &c.

You're perfectly right, I absolutely should - so far I've been too lazy, the image making is already tried and easy.
Do you know if dA's tagging has any influence on search engine results?

Oh, I should think so. Search engines do like tags (at the moment) but they certainly like content. For all intents and purposes your tutorial has no content for a search engine to find, just an image... A good idea to convert it and add it to your journal. That is what journal entries are for, rich content.

Wow. I don't foresee painting many lens flares, but I'll be filing this one away just in case. Nice work!

The science behind lens flares, and related phenomena like diffraction spikes, are really fascinating. Way over my head, but fascinating. Those fancy diffraction grate thingies that turn any point light source into a picture? That's deep magic.

Well, there's certainly not all entirely correct in here. Optics are a cool part of physics, though. Be sure to notify when if you get around to making some lensflares.
