“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
