Transform Your Image Using 2 Sliders. Easy. Amazing Results.

Click image for a high resolution version. Lucis is perfect for artistic and scientific and medical applications.

Lucis is back! It is available for Windows as a Photoshop plug-in and for Mac OS X as a standalone. The Windows plug-in has been completely re-written for 64-bit Win7, 8.1 and 10. The Mac standalone is also 64-bit and works up to High Sierra. More changes are in the works.

As you move the Enhance Detail slider to the left, detail pops. That's all it took to create the image on the right.

Improve contrast and detail but stay realistic.

Create a great HDR from 1 photo.

Over-process the image but mix it with the original to add texture.

Go surrealistic.

Easy.

As you move the Smooth Detail slider to the right, you smooth image detail throughout the image. That's all it took to create the image to the left.

Go from noise reduction to watercolor effects.

Easy.

Use both sliders to reveal patterns in the image. A sculpted look results when the difference between the two slider values is kept small, like the image to the right.

Play with this. You will be surprised at the images hidden within your image.

There is no end to the transformations Lucis can make. Process an image multiple times. Use Lucis plus Photoshop® editing capabilities.

Check Split Channels and apply the two sliders to each RGB channel separately.

Use Split Channels to perfect contrasts, create even better HDR images, and make drawing-effects like the image to the left.

If you process each channel with very different settings the result is wild. If you keep getting ugly, keep playing.
