    ## What makes Shine so great ##

    9 years experience at work.
    Since 2004 Ohanaware's developers have been building a great deal of photo editing apps & photo effects. Being photographers as well as developers, provides insight and understanding, that we use to build our cutting edge photo tools.

    Sophisticated Light Rays Engine.
    It took 18 months for Shine to be completed, with many iterations of the engine. All in the quest to generate the most natural looking light rays possible. Shine 1.1 includes a refactored version of the this engine, delivering superior performance while using less memory.

    A workspace that allows focus on the task in hand.
    It's easier to concentrate on perfecting the photo, when there are less distractions. Shine's tools are neatly laid out on the left, the rest of the window is used to provide the stunningly large preview. In full screen the preview almost fills the entire screen.

    Smart Saving (non-destructive file format).
    Ohanaware's Smart Saving uses a non-destructive file format, so when a file is saved as a ".Shine" file it includes the original image, the document settings, every previous save & all the Undos. This enables the photo to be 'undone' to a week last tuesday, or quickly restored to a month ago.
