I've in the past been able to do similar stuff using the unsharpen to weird limits..sample:
Amount: 180-250
Radius: 5-8
Threshold: 0-1

Then blend the modes the layers.

LucisArt is quite unique in what it does. If you're able to duplicate a particular narrow point along its spectrum of effects by some other means, it'll still be more work than just running the plug-in ;-). It's the old time vs. money debate.

As for the cost, discounts are available.

GIMP's ACE (adaptive contrast enhancement) filter can mimic some of the lucis effects that I've seen. Like GIMP, this plugin is free too. Can be found here.

Re: Lucis art LucisArt alternative?

Just wondering and looking for alternative or discount codes for lucisart. I followed the link earlier in the post that has expired. Would really like to enjoy this plug in but its really pricey for the dhr process I am looking for.
