Topaz Sharpen AI
1

I recently bought a newer computer so I started looking at Topaz Sharpen AI again. It was very slow on my older computer but runs much better on the new one. When I tried it before it seemed to have a bunch of artifacts (first version) but they must have seriously tweaked the engine now as it is astounding.

As a test I threw a DP3M image at it. In SPP6 I had it export as a JPEG in double size and then took that JPEG through Sharpen AI and tried maxing out the sharpening just to see what would happen. Then compared the double sized JPEG against the Sharpen AI'd version at 1:1 or 2:1. (4:1 version the original size of the image).

And because I know somebody is going to mention it I also tried an original sized JPEG through GIgapixel AI (2x scale factor) vs the SPP6 Double Sized JPEG through Sharpen AI.

Likely even better results if I did this all TIFF.
