Make your photos as perfect as the moment they were taken.

Overview

LUCiD is an easy-to-use desktop application that makes your pictures look as perfect as the moment -- in no time flat, proving that you don't have to be a pro photographer, own an expensive camera, or spend hours editing to get great photos.

Despite the latest technology, cameras have yet to replicate the acuity of the human eye. Since we're talking about technology, let's talk about ours. When you fix your photos with LUCiD's Landscapes preset, you're tapping into the same award-winning science that's used by labs and pro photographers around the world.

Athentech’s new consumer photo editing app, Lucid, pairs a slick, post-Yosemite interface with tasteful, natural image enhancement options to create a product that is as easy-to-use as it is helpful. Lots of photo editing apps offer a seemingly limitless suite of features that exist only to bulk up the app – most crazy filters are borderline useless, adding unnecessary muddiness to photos when simplicity would do. Luckily Lucid avoids this trap by focusing in on what it does well, getting you in and out of the app as soon as possible. Lucid is particularly useful for snapshots taken with a smartphone; since smartphones are generally unable to reproduce colors and scenes that are true to life without some tweaking on the camera – exposure adjustments, white balance, etc. – Lucid can seamlessly plug into your photo importing process. And with a very generous trial period, Lucid is able to give you 30 days of its uninhibited power, nearly assuring it becomes a go-to of yours. While Lucid has established itself as an iOS power player, it’s still a fledgling Mac app, so some of its growing pains show through; but if this is where the app’s beginning, it’ll be a delight to see where it ends up.

I like this software. My only concern is that this company continues to update their filter plugins called "Perfectly Clear". But, they are not updating Lucid at the same rate and have not done so in a good while now. Perhaps there is some internal reasons for this or they have an update cycle they have that I am not privy too. It’s just that I fear abandonware and, having been a mac user for long enough and burned as a former Bibble user, it’s a legitimate concern. Even so, I find Lucid to be an excellent application and I have no regrets purchasing it or using it. I purchased this when I no longer had any good photo editing software. It was surprisingly good and better than “good enough”. I just got a license for Luminar and I am seeing how that will fit in my future workflow. Yes, Lucid is a one hit wonder - of sorts. You do have some ability to modify what it does. The good news is, it gets it right so much of the time, it really is a time saver. I have started to trust it more and more with my photo edits, and that is not an easy thing for me.

So I have seen this product on the market but thought twice about the purchase. Received the offer from Macupdate last night for half off and there was not much to think about so I said to myself " Why Not ". The application is fast opens my 5D MKII files with no problem and would have to say after playing with the application for a few hours now I would have no problem paying full price it does as advertise and is allowing me to cut my workflow in half. A+++++++ happy camper at half the cost. Thank you Macupdate for such a great offer.

It's easy and automatic...literally, customizable auto-correct. I'm pretty happy!

Basic image enhancer using the default CIFilters API provided by Apple. Nothing special. Those filters are also found in Pixelmator. Note: Also crashed several times when adding very huge image files. In the end too expensive.

Many people cannot figure out Photoshop or Pixelmator complex GUI, so Lucid makes definitely more sense to them when it comes to quickly enhance some pics and share them with family and friends.

Hi there, our filters are not found in Pixelmator – we have over 250 unique patents, so you can see they are not “basic” or in another apps (unless they licensed from us). If you'd like to learn more about our software and the technology behind it, visit our site: www.athentech.com . Feel free to give us a shout if you have any questions at: help@athentech.com

Kindest,
