Radiate with the Glow Tool

The Glow tool works by brightening the highlights in your image to naturally make shiny objects appear even shinier. It will add a soft or heavy glow to any type of photography, but the best images to use with this tool are ones where shimmer and shine are important to the overall look. The Glow tool can be located in the Edit tools of the Photo Editor. 

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!

The Glow tool works especially well with certain kinds of product photography, where you can really bring out the boldness of your product with an extra glow, or for night photography to highlight the luminance of a cityscape.

Step 1: Open an image with Photo Editor. Under the Edit menu, you’ll see the Glow tool.
Step 2: Adjust the different settings until you get the results you're looking for!
  • Strength: Adjusts the overall strength of the glow

  • Intensity: Determines how much the glow brightens underlying colors.

  • Tolerance: Determines the threshold at which mid-range colors are included in the glow.

  • Glow Size: Determines the radius/size of the radial/uniform glow.

  • Glint Size: Determines the radius/size of the “X” shaped glow.

  • Saturation: Determines the color saturation of the glow.

  • Tint: Defaults to “Empty”, so original colors are used. If a tint color is selected, the original colors in the glow are replaced with the selected color. Saturation affects the tint color as well.

Step 4: If you would like to apply or remove the glow from certain parts of your image, you can use the Select mode to do so. 

Step 5: Click Apply to save your changes. Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
