    We can change the angle of lighting
    .
    At the moment it is at 135 degrees. We can click the wheel to see how the image looks from a different angle. It can be quite interesting. We can also type the value in the "Angle" input field instead.

    We can move the scroller to change the "Height" value

    We can also select the "Amount" value
    .
    The default is "100 %". We may prefer even more than that. We can click and drag the scroller to make the value less. We can just type the number in the "Amount" input field. It is really worth experimenting, because, as we can see, it has some nice effects.
