I'm surprised and a little disappointed that the developer still hasn't released a new version that natively supports CS3. I mean come on! Even pokey Adobe managed to eek out a UB-compliant application...so what's the hold up?

That said, if you really depend on this handy tool (and there are a lot of us out there who do), you still can use it in a somewhat crippled manner. Add it to your CS3 folder and run Photoshop in Rosetta. Of course by doing so, you completely negate the performance benefits of CS3...

LucisArt 2.1 works with Mac OS X.

The old LucisArt 2.0 does not work with Mac OS X. There is an upgrade to version 2.1 available.

After trying the demo (well, you can't really try it, just preview it) I found the Lucis Art website. I looked at their samples, assuming that would show best case, and found these filters utterly useless.

All they seem to do is enhance color or luminance noise in the photo; which you can do with Levels if that's your thing.

And I was less than impressed with the Kai-style unlabeled buttons. That was cutting edge in like, 1996 guys.

I have used this plug-in for three or four years and it is without a doubt one of my favorites. No other plug-in on the market can achieve most of the special effects offered by this easy-to-use interface. With the LucisArt plug-in you can render an image to look more like a sketch or a painting than a photograph. Names like Winslow and Whyeth hint at some of the "looks" that are available. I have never understood why this wonderful plug-in is not more well known by Photoshop users. Its a gem!

I run an ad agency, and Lucis is our "secret weapon." Our clients, our staff, and even the newspaper and magazine reps we deal with often ask us how we get the photos in our ads to "pop" so much more that others. Lucis has a way of bringing out the hidden details that are hidden in virtually every photo. Try it, you'll like it.

As with any "tool", the results are only as good as the one using the tool. I have been using this program for over a year and although not for every image, it is definatly a powerful tool when used correctly on the right image. Personnally I think this is a must have plugin for serious Photoshoppers.

I first saw Lucis for the PC and was so impressed that I purchased it, even though I am less than enthusiastic about PC. So when the MAC version came out I couldn't wait to get a copy. I have an art gallery in which I show my photography. People are always asking how I got a certain look. It was usually a result of Lucis. It is a great program. I heartily recommend it to anyone seeking to add that 'something' different to your images.

Ahem.....................

This 'might' appeal to the Photoshop Elements crowd but I'm having a hard time figuring out why anyone even remotely experienced with Adobe Photoshop 6.x+ would use something like this.

Whatever................

If you know of a way to photoshop the LucisArt effects using ONLY photoshop, you should post a tutorial...I would purchase it - if it's reasonably priced. ;-) I have been looking all over the internet for something that mimicks this Lucisart plugin, but I have not been successful. If you can compete with this overpriced plugin with a photo action or set of instructions, then you could make a fortune!!!
