LumiEssence is a powerful luminance (brightness) based, image transformation plug-in. Three modes of operation (Alpha, Color, and Grey) make it suitable for color correction, false coloring, luminance keying, enhanced negative operations, sophisticated color-to-grey conversions, and contrast manipulation. That's just what we've figured out it can do so far. There's surely many more exciting possibilities awaiting your discovery. It was designed to be an experimental tool for creating wild and crazy graphics, but seems to have found itself capable of doing other things, too.
