  • JUST IN: Topaz releases Sharpen AI 2.1.0

    Topaz just released Sharpen AI 2.1.0. Here are the details:


    Various fixes and improvements taken from the latest DeNoise AI release
    – Includes fixes to save dialog
    Various UI design changes
    – Masking button moved to file list when not in Photoshop plugin mode
    – Masking button in Photoshop mode changed slightly to differentiate it from other buttons
    – Zoom options have been made smaller to accommodate the new slider
    – Right panel controls have been redesigned slightly
    – Add grain moved to new post processing section
    – Slight color changes throughout the application
    Improved response time while drawing a mask


    Fixed models sometimes not loading correctly
    Fixed save dialog getting frozen
    Fixed some instances where the initial mask would invert incorrectly
    Fixed mask not deleting properly if initial mask entry is cancelled
    Fixed navigation panel box going out of bounds on certain size changes
    Fixed completed flag sticking even after changes are made
    Fixed closing images not bringing up a warning prompt in some instances
    Fixed bug in Intel CPU detection
    Fixed navigation panel keeping the previous image loaded when no image is selected
    Fixed grain not showing up in the file list when auto settings was on
    – Grain should now save correctly in batch mode with auto


    Added new auto-detect mask functionality for generating base masks
    – Can detect 20 different types of subjects including people, cars, planes, and various animals.
    Added new auto detection for which mode to use
    – Works like auto-detect settings, but for which mode to use on an image
    Added tutorial for basic workflow introduction
    Added fit view mode and arbitrary zoom levels
    – Keep in mind this will degrade performance if zooming out on large images. More to see is more to process.
    – Minimum zoom level is the minimum of either the fit zoom level or 50%. For example, if your fit zoom level is 75% the minimum is 50%. If your fit zoom level is 20%, then that is the minimum.
    Added cancel button when coming in from Photoshop
    Added status differentiation between the initialization and generating preview phases of processing
    – This should more accurately reflect the actual time to process in general, as the initialization phase can take quite a while on some systems
    Added proper mouse over cursors for various components
    – Yes/No toggles, Mode selection, Original button


    Changed batch processing so it now only saves images that are currently selected in the file list
    – In order to get the old functionality, you must select all before saving
    Changed the default selection when importing multiple files to just the first image
    Changed the default model to Stabilize
    Changed how auto is shown in the file list
    Changed product tour
    – Now shows cards overviewing various features
    Changed right panel to disable itself when no files are selected
    Changed save button to switch between “Save Image” and “Start Batch Processing” based on how many images are selected rather than how many images are loaded
    Changed close image warning check so that it will only as if an image hasn’t been saved yet
    Changed how images are removed from list when saved coming from Lightroom
    – All images that are completed are now removed from the list. This is due to a LR limitation where we are only able to load and save from the image they provide. Removing the image prevents sharpening the same image twice when processing in batch mode.
    Changed wording on masking buttons depending on if this is the first or second time entering the masking interface for an image
    – Should be “Apply Mask” and “Delete Mask” if the image has no mask, and “Update Mask” and “Undo Changes” if there is a mask already
    Changed the file list to just list the initials of the controls in order to save space
    Changed wording of the Suppress Noise slider to Noise Suppression to make “N” more intuitive in file list
    Changed default suffix to “-SAI” instead of “-sharpen” due to confusion with the Sharpen model

    Hi. Can you estimate the average time to make a photo from 3mp to 10mp? How long does it take?

      Sorry for the delay in replying, just saw the notification!

      This would be a job for Topaz Gigapixel, and if you have a decent computer, it can take only seconds.

        How to create clear thumbnails?
        by Mona
        Is there a tutorial for reducing graphics for a thumbnail and still retaining sharpness? I read about a Photoshop trick where you sharpen an image before reducing it, only reduce in increments of 25% at a time and to do this as a JPG and increase saturation at the end. Does anyone know the steps this...

        PSE 6 batch processing problem
        by Cinepuxon
        This problem involves using the 'process multiple files' procedure to organize images for presentation on a Wii. The Wii shows photos chronologically arranged by the 'date taken' or 'date modified' info in the image file. So, if you touch up an image in PSE the date modified is the current date and...

I thought that when I saved my cutout in Remask,...

        deleting file icons (previews)
        by camner
        I've noticed that when I go to have my digital pix printed at a kiosk, if the file has a preview icon (ie a thumbnail of the actual picture is the file icon), the kiosk will think there are two images for each picture (the real one and the preview icon). This is a pain.

        Does anyone know...

        PS6.0 QuickMask problem
        by PixelMover
        here's one I haven't come across earlier..
        When using quick mask, the area I mask is pale red, as if I had set opacity to 10% or so..
        And when I exit quickmask, the whole image is selected (as in 'select all'), not the part I masked.
        Checked all my settings, opacity is 100%, mode...
