Steven’s Review

Please scroll down for many more reviews from happy Raya Pro users…

“I have always avoided HDR type programs as I have only ever seen harsh and unnatural results with them. Enter Jimmy McIntyre…Forget about a new camera, a new lens for now. Sit down and spend a small amount of money on this stuff and take the time with it – it has been completely invaluable and pushed me to become a much better editor than I was a few years ago. The best part about it all is that Jimmy is just an all-round helpful guy and really easy to listen to and learn from.”

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

“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

I’m a busy person. What aspects of the workflow will it speed up and simplify?

All of it. Enhancing and correcting colours, dodging and burning, detail extraction, exposure blending, sharpening, crafting vignettes, preparing for the web…they’re all just single clicks of a button that produce the highest possible quality.

Does it create that fake HDR look?

Not at all. Exposure blending in Raya Pro creates gorgeous natural results because it works directly on masks and not the images themselves. So image quality remains as clean as possible.

Can I access complex and powerful features in Photoshop without learning Photoshop?

Absolutely. That’s what Raya Pro is there for. For example, enhancing lovely details and textures in Photoshop can be cumbersome, involving multiple layers, blend modes etc. In Raya Pro, it’s one button. That’s it.

FAQ

Does Raya Pro Include InstaMask? That is correct. It includes all of the panels you see on this page.
 
What does free updates for life mean? Free updates means that for the life of Raya Pro, ALL customers get every single update for free. They do not have to purchase Raya Pro again. ‘For life’ does not mean for all of Jimmy’s life, or for the life of his business. If Raya Pro is discontinued, then updates wall naturally stop.
 
Where can I buy the Exposure Blend Like An Expert Separately? Here is the link to the course page, where you can purchase it separately: https://www.shutterevolve.com/mastering-raya-pro-course-use-digital-blending-plugin/
 
Is Raya Pro for CS6 different from Raya Pro for CC? The vast majority of the functions in the CS6 are the same as CC. However, where there are sliders in CC (InstaMask and Quick Blending), there are buttons in CS6. This is because the software behind CS6 has long been dead, so it doesn’t have the flexibility of CC. Nevertheless, most of the functionality is the same.
 
Is Raya Pro Compatible with CS5? I’m afraid Raya Pro no longer supports Photoshop CS5, just CS6 and CC (including the latest version of CC).
 
Is Raya Pro compatible with all versions of CC? It is only compatible with CC2018 up to the newest version. Versions before CC 2018 will not have access to the Quick Blending sliders, but everything else will work. Raya Pro does not work at all in the CC2015.
 
What is the current version of Raya Pro? The current version is 5.0
 
How many machines can I install Raya Pro on? You can install the software on up to 3 different personal machines. You cannot purchase Raya Pro and share it with others.
 
Will this come with tutorials? 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. However, 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: Exposure Blend Like An Expert: InstaMask and Raya Pro Course
 
Does Exposure Blend Like An Expert teach how to use Raya Pro 50? Yes, it is recorded in Raya Pro 3.0, but also 100% compatible with Raya Pro 5.0 as the two versions have almost identical layouts.
 
Do you accept credit cards? We accept PayPal and Credit Cards.
 
Will this work with Photoshop Elements or Lightroom? I’m afraid not. Currently the panel works in CS6, and all versions of CC. Some CC 14.0 users will have difficulty using Raya Pro as this version of PS was unstable and struggled with HTML panels. Adobe fixed this very quickly in later updates. So please update your version of CC (it’s free since you’re a CC user).
 
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.
 
How is Lumi32 different to Raya Pro? Firstly, Raya Pro is an all-round Photoshop suite, which means it has literally everything for your digital workflow (detail enhancers, colour correction, CA correction, Orton Effect, sharpeners etc). It is one of the most popular panels in the world and continues to help thousands of photographers create beautiful images.
 
Within Raya Pro is InstaMask. This is a panel specialising in creating the best luminosity masks Photoshop can provide. There is also a fantastic course for InstaMask, Exposure Blend Like an Expert, which will take you from absolute beginner to genuis exposure blender in the quickest possible way.
 
Here is a video which will outline many of the wonderful tools within Raya Pro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6fT-xwr0XQ&feature=emb_title Raya Pro would be my first choice every time over Lumi32, if I could only choose one.
 
Almost all of my images within my portfolio were created using Raya Pro. Here is my portfolio: https://www.shutterevolve.com/jimmy-mcintyres-portfolio/
 
Lumi32 is a highly specialised luminosity mask generator. It differs greatly from InstaMask in almost every way. Here is a list of the features of Lumi32 that InstaMask doesn’t have:
1: Creates 32 Bit masks (smoother than 8 or 16 bit masks)
2: Mask algorithms are designed by us, and therefore superior to Photoshop’s. 3: 100% customisable presets
4: Dynamic histogram
5: Greater flexibility with the four sliders
6: LAB mode masks
7: Zone Masks

Reviews From Users

lms-course “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

“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’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

“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
