Rainbow is a graphic application that allow you to set wonderful effects in a fast and easy way.
It's possible to apply the effects in sequence, getting amazing results.

Reflection: sets the distance, height and transparency of the image reflection.

Shadow: sets the angle, depth, X offset, Y offset, blur and color of the shadow of the image.
With a radius value greater than 0, the shadows will be curved (only for a rectangular image).

Border: sets the size, radius and color of the image border.
A radius value greater than 0 sets a rounded border.

Glass: applies a "glass reflection" effect to the image, by setting the start/end points and alpha values.

Miniature: applies a "miniature" effect to the image, by setting the 2 control points, saturation, U.M.R/U.M.I (Unsharp Mask Radius/Intensity) and radius.

SpotLight: applies a "spotlight" effect to the image, by setting the start/end points, brightness and concentration values.

Bloom: softens edges and applies a pleasant glow to the image, by setting the radius and intensity.

Sketch: creates a sketch that outlines the edges of an image in black, by setting the noise level, sharpness, edge intensity, threshold and contrast.

Splash: creates a circle splash to the image, by setting the x, y and radius values.

Zoom: creates a zoom blur to the image, by setting the x, y and amount values.

Curl: sets the time, angle and radius, shadow size and amount of the image curl.
Choose to leave the background image and apply a skin effect.

Perspective: changes the perspective of the image (8 available), by setting the relative degrees.

Distort: changes the visual angle of the image, by setting the x/y value of the corner.

Pinch: deforms the image, by setting the x, y, radius and scale.

Bump: deforms the image, by setting the x, y, radius, angle and scale.

Rotation: rotates the image, by setting the rotation degrees.
With the "crop" option, the frame doesn't rotate.

Resize: resizes the image, by setting the new width/height (locks/unlocks the proportion of size).

Crop: crops the image, by choosing the new x/y/width/height.

Trim: removes the transparent outline of the image.
