Photoshop and GIMP both have the ability to make lens
flares. So it occurred to me: these lens flares are
really just a bunch of circles and lines and shapes,
with radial gradients and transparencies. So shouldn't
it be possible for a vector graphics program like
Sodipodi to be able to make lens flares, too? I mean, I
don't really know the algorithm or formula used to make
them, but someone who does should be able to translate
it to SVG, right? Wouldn't that be cool?
