You can't get that in between look that I read some want...It gives you more masking work and more layer work...I think by adding more knobs and control buttons that enhances peoples workflow and gives more different results and even better...I haven't seen this program in real life...so just my idea here
Gerry, sorry, I didn't get email notification of your replies... You're welcome!

Sure you can get in between effects. First there is the Amount slider (sometimes accompanied by numbered buttons for additional levels of that effect). This offers a wide range of effects within each of the six overall sub-filters.

Then there is the Mix slider, where you can blend any effect achieved with the Amount slider back into the original from 0 to 100. This is all accomplished even before getting back into Photoshop and messing with layer opacity and blending modes for even more control.

So while the GUI can probably be tightened and modernized, it's still quite flexible. I know another version of LucisArt is on the way for Spring--perhaps its GUI will be totally redesigned (?).

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

Yes ofc. To busy at work here.

Its a real simple and quick retouch.

The simple thing is that this tutorial works very good on this particular image.

1 Open image in ACR/Ligthroom.

2 Adjust your image

Recovery set it 100
Fill ligth set it to 100
Set the black to prefered lvl, to get back some detail.
Push contrast and Clarity to 100
Set the brigthness to prefered lvl.
Pull out saturation.

And open the image.

3 Now while this looked very nice on the clothes, it totally messed up the face.
So reopen the image in camera raw, play with the adjustments until you get the
look of the skin as you like.

4 Drag the Skin layer onto the cloth layer, add a black layer mask and paint in the
skin, where needed.

5 Then some basic dodge n Burn.

6 Posterize edges, the values at 1,1,1, and paint in where needed.

I think you did a pretty good job on the skin which you do not say how you did?
Thanks for your post, But maybe you can go a little deeper with your explanation? Maybe a PSD file with the layers would help some people out more.
Thanks
Snook
