If you blur the bright areas of an image and blend them over the original image, your image will appear to glow. This filter takes it two steps further. First, why stop at one blur? Multiple blurs at different radii make a more natural, aesthetic glow. Second, you can use a custom light source to illuminate your image.


glow, fireflies, lasers, star, sun, light, shine, illuminate
