Re: Topaz Sharpen AI

Jpegs are already sharpened and lack most of the data that the sensor can capture.

As such running jpegs through Topaz Sharpen AI is more likely than not to lead to artefacts, a problem even with raw files, but if that floats one's boat its all good.

JPEGs are not really good for much more than mild color rebalances and cropping, but to each her own. That's not a bad thing, that's the reason to use jpegs in the first place I would think.

Used as part of a raw workflow Topaz Sharpen AI can do amazing things, particularly if you learn how to avoid what it tends to overdo. Photoshop, particularly Elements, has nothing in it currently that compares to certain things Topaz Sharpen AI can do--I think its the best product Topaz publishes.
