Are you referring to effects that have the lines with handles like in this screenshot? If so, the effect provides lightening gradients that can be applied to certain areas in the image that the user wants to lighten instead of brightening the whole image. To control the light in the image, click on the handles (the dots at the end of the lines) and drag them. You can change the angle of the light by moving the handles and you can control the strength of the light and how it blends into the image by making the lines longer. Longer lines spread out the gradient so the edges of the lightened areas are not harsh.

This kind of effect is useful when your image is bright enough in some areas, but not bright enough in others. If you used an effect that brightened the whole image, the bright areas would become too bright.
