Sun Effect in AKVIS NatureArt: Adding Sun, Stars, Moon

Nature Effects: Sun

This effect adds the most important celestial body to an image - The Sun in all of its manifestations, depending on the time of day, the seasons, and the weather: bright, dim, summer, winter, rising, setting, etc. By changing settings or using one of the presets from AKVIS, it's possible to transform the sun into the moon (AKVIS Moon preset) or another more distant star (AKVIS Star preset).

Use the Transform tool in the Before tab to determine the location of the sun, its size, and the direction of its rays.

The sun is depicted schematically as a circle with rays emanating from it (the number of which is determined by the corresponding parameter in the Rays tab). When is pressed, markers appear around the circumference of the frame.
