The Flare Tool

The flare tool, a new member of the drawing tools, definitely stands heads above its more mundane neighbors. This fascinating tool lets you create effects such as lens flares, shown in Figure 5.13, by making a flare object consisting of a center, a halo and rays and rings. The great thing about the flare is that it is photo realistic, yet totally vector based in its structure. Because the flare is live, it can also be edited and adjusted to your heart's content. The flare tool comes equipped with lots of options that can be manipulated to produce numerous variations.
