We review some of our recent results on experimental light-induced periodic structures and their role in controlling light in discrete optics considering advanced features based on phase engineering and multiplexing of optically-induced lattices. While in the past only rather simple geometries like diamond, square, or hexagonal lattices were studied, we focus onto more complex photonic structures. Among them, we will present anisotropic triangular lattices, superlattices and three-dimensional lattices. We also study the propagation and localization of light in these structures - from simple waveforms to complex topological structures carrying phase dislocations.
