Re: Topaz Photo AI vs. Radiant Photo batch test of speed and quality

I think I am your use case!

I did another shoot yesterday afternoon, the decor for a large outside party at a resort hotel. No people, just colorful tablecloths, centerpieces, games, stands, etc., in an upscale setting.

I once again batch processed my 24MP RAWs through Radiant Photo. My 16GB memory Intel Mac did choke about halfway through the 200 photos, with an Out of Memory error. I just shut down Radiant Photo, and restarted it with the remaining RAWs. No error. Lesson learned: Only do batches of about 100 RAWs at a time, on my machine.

The results were gorgeous. A bit on the bright postcard side, so next time I'll turn the color down a bit. But other than that minor point, I loved the results. Radiant Photo's automatic settings worked especially well on shots where some elements were in shade and others were in full sun.

I do apologize for comparing Topaz Photo AI to Radiant Photo in my original post. Those are for different purposes; like comparing apples and pears as one person put it.

But I don't apologize for saying that Radiant Photo saves me literally hours of work. It automatically does what I would do individually, photo-by-photo. Worth every penny.
