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...

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 love this plugin. Been using lucis for over a year now.
Spend some time experimenting and it can give you some excellent results.

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!!!

Topaz Software does the same thing and only costs $39.00 Don't know if it's available for MAC, but you might want to check it out. I have actually talked on the phone with the creator/producer and she told me that it's so expensive because it is a very complicated algorithmic process to produce it and it costs a bunch of money to get it created and marketed. And also told me it is too expensive to create a plug-in of the newer versions for MAC since there are only about 20% of users out there using MACs, so it was not cost-effective at this time for her to produce a Mac version. I have used the trial software of Topaz and it's complete... gives you 30 days to try it... not restrictions on the use for that period of time. But Lucis Art is VERY restrictive on their trial version... you cannot actually produce the photo that your trial version lets you create... it won't let you create the photo so you can actually see it's effects - you have to rely on their little window to see the effects. My experience with Lucis Art is somewhat frustrating and I think it's MUCH too expensive when Topaz is about 1/10th the cost.

Just my 2 cents worth... take it for what it's worth! ;-)
