Thanks a ton. I really appreciate it, the super-quick implementation and that you made both options available, the hotkey and the command line parameter.
This raises the Windows experience to a whole new level, everything is suddenly so much more fun, it even spices up tedious maintenance chores.
Multi-layer effects are indeed interesting.
Concerning the command line - you know you can move your .lnk shortcuts into C:\Users\YourName\Sendto
This turns them from drop targets into right-mouse entries. You right-click an image file anywhere and hand it over to one of your lucidity presets.
