    LucisArt

    I'm trying to find the same thing. Good luck! If I find it first I'll send it to you. If you could do the same I would be much obliged.

    LucisArt Demo

    Well you must be more capable than I, because I have spent the last week and a half trying to find it. And yes, I searched on google. LucisArt.com doesn't offer it on their site any more.

    That download link is dead. You might actually try it before dishing out sarcasm.

    PS- What is this Lucisart Plugin? It sounds interesting, but I've never heard of it.

    I'm not going to do everything for them, it was more to show that other sites do have it for download as well, I have no interest in the software as I have no need for it. It's also readily available via rapidshare (no links as this could possibly be warez)

    As to the software, it was (as its now discontinued) an image enhancement tool for photoshop.

    Just to clarify, LucisArt (the older plug-in) has been discontinued, but there is a new version of the plug-in called Lucis Pro 6.0 coming out in August.

    It's not aimed at the home user/Rapidshare crowd, but rather to working pros (portrait and wedding studios and fine artists).

    anyone thought of splitting the cost with a friend in your city?

    It's 595$. I mean i want to get a business going and this plug in will be so sick. I cant imagine paying that yet. however splitting it with a friend interested would drop the cost nicely...if a few people were intersted it would be even better.


    from the sounds its shipped to you and then a code emailed.
    you could then load it to your desktop and laptop to use on diff computers.
    so i would assume its usable like that if you split on it with someone else.


    I want to purchase it and love the results a lot of photographers get.
    but its a hefty price tag

    nuwomb, that's an interesting approach but I don't think it will work in practical terms (whether we're talking about Lucis Pro or any other plug-in/application).

    First, what you propose is not a standard approach to software licensing, whether cheap or expensive.

    Second, Lucis Pro will be protected by a USB dongle to fight the rampant pirating that the earlier version experienced. (The good news is that it will work on Windows XP, Vista and Intel Macs, so you can switch platforms and computers as you need to by reinstalling the software and plugging in the dongle.)

    At best I suppose you can share the cost with someone who will be using a computer in the same location as yours, but obviously not at the same time. But one of you would have to be the official owner for registration purposes.

    Remember, if you want to use Lucis Pro for business, you can write it off! And don't forget there's a decent discount available.

    I should add you might look into the new and very inexpensive Topaz Adjust, which does a pretty good Lucis Art imitation for about 1/15 of the price (until 8/1).

    Did you actually try to download the file? I didn't think so...

    You could always write it off as a business expense. It won't make up for the large change required upfront, but it would certainly help. :eek:

    A caveat.....

    For the record, LucisArt 2 is not compatible with intel-based macs.The work around is to run CS3 on your intel-based mac in rosetta mode, the side effect being that CS3 runs pretty slow.

    LucisArt 2 is OK on the Windows side (Vista and CS3); LucisArt 3 will add Mac Intel/native CS3 compatibility.

    Latest news

    Turns out the old LucisArt 2 will be around at least until the end of this month.

    The latest development regarding LucisArt 3 (planned for late September) is that there will be two different versions (Enhance Detail and Special Effects).

    See more details at the top of the page and under the blue heading here.

    Sorry for the major bump, but they recently took the mac software off their site. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of lucisarts for mac? Any help is very much appreciated.

    That party is long over. You'd be happy with a much cheaper, more capable and actively developed solution such as Topaz Adjust. Even if you found a Mac copy of LA, because it is no longer developed it is not guaranteed to be compatible with future OS-X updates.
