“I am an extension junky and I must say, since downloading the Raya Pro panel, I’ve stopped looking as it’s got everything I need! Yes, including Frequency Separation – love it!” – Jerry Syder
“Since I began my own quest to improve my photography and post processing skills, Raya Pro has become my ‘go-to’ tool of choice” – Alistair @ ARD Image
“The ability to control the tonal range and depth of an image is amazing! This is a plugin that I would not want be without in my image post-processing.” – John Galbreath
NEW – Now Comes With InstaMask 1.0 (CC Only)
Two panels for the price of one!
Craft any mask in seconds. Luminosity Masks have never been easier
With InstaMask we now have the ability to create advanced, 16 bit luminosity masks in the easiest possible way. Not only do we have the 18 traditional luminosity masks, we also have the full range of masks for each color channel. So we now have 72 luminosity masks!
We can also create luminosity masks with two simple point-and-click methods. We simply click on an area of our image and the mask is created for us. And three powerful sliders help us craft and shape our masks perfectly.
“Been trying the new InstaMask and love it. Have found I can target very specific parts of an image which is great. This is especially helpful as I have moved into Photo Artistry where this control is essential, your panel has saved me hours of hard work on a project I am working on. Please keep up the good work”by Mike Gaskin

Raya Pro - Instant Digital Blending Methods
Introducing InstaMask - A Powerful Luminosity Mask Panel for Photoshop
Why is Raya Pro for CS6 Cheaper? Recently we released a powerful luminosity mask panel called InstaMask. This is included in all future Raya Pro CC purchases for free and will be emailed to all existing Raya Pro CC users. However, it is only available for Photoshop CC at the moment. Therefore, we have reduced the price of CS6 by $10 until we create a CS6 version of InstaMask. Raya Pro for CS6 was $44.99 before Friday 14th of April.
When will InstaMask be available for CS6 users? We have been working with developers but so far our attempts have failed. Since CS6 uses flash, which is now outdated, few developers have the skill to convert InstaMask into a flash panel. Nevertheless, we are still trying to find a way to do it. But we don’t know if/when it will be done.
What if I purchase Raya Pro CS6, but upgrade to Photoshop CC? Do I need to purchase Raya Pro and InstaMask again? No you don’t. Simply email us via the email on our contact form, tell us you want to upgrade, and all you need to do is pay the difference. So if you paid $34.99 for Raya Pro for CS6, then all you need to pay is $10 (Raya Pro and InstaMask for CC are $44.99) and we will send you everything for CC.
Is Raya Pro Compatible with CS5? I’m afraid Raya Pro no longer supports Photoshop CS5, just CS6 and CC.
What is the current version of Raya Pro? The current version is 2.0
How many machines can I install Raya Pro on? You can install the software on up to 3 different personal machines.
Is Raya Pro 3 panels, or one? Raya Pro is one panel which you can purchase for $44.99
Will this come with tutorials? There is a full, comprehensive and easy-to-follow Raya Pro course that will teach you to blend exposures naturally for any scene. You can find out more here: Mastering Raya Pro
However, the basic Raya Pro package comes with an easy installation video and simple tutorials for every single button in the panel. You can see all of the tutorials included on the official Raya Pro YouTube Channel
Does Mastering Raya Pro teach how to use Raya Pro 2.0? Yes, while most of the course is recorded in 1.1, which is identical to 2.0, there is a comprehensive module which covers the new exposure blending tools in 2.0.
Do you accept credit cards? We accept paypal but if you don’t have a paypal account simply go down to the ‘Pay With a Debit or Credit Card’ option and pay securely with credit or debit card.
Will this work with Photoshop Elements or Lightroom? I’m afraid not. Currently the panel works in CS6, and all versions of CC (including CC 2017).
Which languages does Raya Pro support? Raya Pro works in all language versions of Photoshop, but the panel is always in English.
What type of license is this? This is an individual license. Only you, the customer can install and use Raya Pro on your personal machines.
If I purchase the panel do I have to download it immediately? Not at all! If you’re at work or even on a train and you buy the panel, an email with the download link will go to the email address you included in the payment. You can then download it when it’s more convenient for you!
Will this work on a Mac computer? This will work on both a Mac and Pc.
Is this Windows 10 Compatible? This is 100% compatible with Windows 10.
Reviews From Users
“I have been using the Raya Pro panel since it became available. There is not a single photograph in my portfolio that has not been touched by this software! Ease of installation, ease of access and especially ease of use is a key for me to use any piece of photographic software. Raya Pro gets 5 stars on all fronts! Without this software the amount of time I would spend in post production would be increased significantly. I am a huge fan of Raya Pro and look forward to the next version of the software in February. I have told all my professional friends and they all agree that this is an indispensable piece of the post production puzzle. Kudos Jimmy for taking luminosity masks and actions to the next level.” By Doug Parks
“I highly recommend Ray Pro to any photographer. I have been using luminosity masks since the early version of Jimmy McIntyre’s Photoshop Actions. The Easy Panel was the next advance but with Ray Pro the ease of using digital blending and applying enhancements has improved my workflow. The ability to control the tonal range and depth of an image is amazing! This is a plugin that I would not want be without in my image post-processing.” By John Galbreath
“CONGRATULATIONS…….. Your Raya Pro is simply stunning. Well done on all the hard work you have put in to make this such a tremendous tool. My wife is delighted too, as I will now be in my Image Studio even more, leaving her in peace with the TV. THANK YOU….”By Paul Keates
“Jimmy, I purchased the Rayo Panel and fell in love right away!! What a brilliant tool! Instantly made my workflow so much easier and so easy to use. Amazing job mate!!” By Carey St Hilaire
“I bought this panel today and got stuck on my computer playing with it for 2 hours. I loved it. Maybe it’s me but the selections seem more precise. I’ve been a student of yours for a few years now and my workflow keeps getting better and better because of you. Thanks so much sensei. This panel rocks.” By Johnny Santiago Photography
“Raya Pro is a game changer. I tried to wrap my head around digital blending in the past but never really figured it out. However, with your panel I was able to create luminosity masks with the click of a button AND recover over/under exposed parts of my image with ease. The other instant digital blending are fantastic too. The workflow is well thought out as well, so I was blending in minutes. Thanks Jimmy!!” by Peter DeMarco
“To make HDR (or iHDR) pictures I generally use 32 bit process (Merge to HDR pro) and then use luminosity masking on top of that to get a natural look HDR pic. A few days back I came to know about Raya Pro, created by Jimmy McIntyre. He is a well-known, great landscape/cityscape/travel photographer.
“The below picture I completely blended using Raya Pro without using any HDR merging/blending software. I used features like luminosity masking, warm, color corrections, sharpen and resize actions. I know we could use these features without this tool but it would be very time consuming with lots of effort involved. I will highly recommend using this add-on/plugins for better natural looking HDR pictures” by Partha Roy
“I bought Raya Pro a few days ago and today I finally had the time to try it out. WOW man, this thing is awesome!!! I still have to learn how to use the luminasity masks, but both the blend if and the apply image functions are stunning!! Congrats and thank you for this great tool!!” by Peter Földiak (500px)
“I’ve tried nearly all the buttons / features of the Raya Pro Panel. Works like a bomb! Don’t let my photos fool you; the panel is powerful and I haven’t even scratched the surface (I just had loads of fun pressing all the buttons).
“I looked for a set of 5 images where there were big shadows and highlights. I then used Rapid Blend method but found that the Apply Image worked better. A little fiddle with the contrast, shadows, highlights, detail and resize / sharpen for the web (all on the same panel) and I was A for Away! Ease of use and good value for money.
Last night I did my “virgin” run at luminosity masks using the Raya Pro Panel (test). I tried LM’s once before via another platform some months back and couldn’t fathom it. However, I was able to easily understand Jimmy’s video and use the panel quite easily.” –By Andrew Harvard
“I’ve been following you for quite awhile now and I never knew what a Luminosity Mask was until I started following you. My work flow has changed a lot since then and I can see the changes (For the better) that I’ve made since. I own most of your courses and love them. I did have a hard time trying to figure out how to use luminosity masks at first. When your Easy Panel came out that was a game changer for me and then you gave us Raya Pro that was just so cool. It just made things so much more easy to figure out. I can now go on a shoot with a vision of how I want my picture to look and with Raya Pro I can make it happen. I’m so glad I discovered this method of editing and truly believe that photography starts with the camera and ends when we’re done editing it. It’s gonna be difficult waiting for the next update. Can’t wait to see whats next. Thanks again Sensei.” By Johnny Santiago
“After experimenting with Digital Blending for some time now, it is a breath of fresh air to be able to use a new and exciting Actions Panel that takes the hassle and time out of the whole process. Easy to install and working like a dream within minutes. Thanks Jimmy” –ByArt Hakker Photography
“Raya Pro: A MUST HAVE PANEL. Raya Pro is one of the finest panels I have used. It makes digital blending extremely easy – just a click of a button and the blending is done. There are a few great new options I can’t wait to apply in my blending. Thanks to Jimmy for this amazing tool” – By Rustam Azmi
