  • I trust Topaz will get it figured out as they have done in the past. However, I agree with you on the package. I use SAI frequently. DeNosie has provided added value over the past year. I have may ...
  • DXO may have more to offer this year than the competition. Topaz may have placed their focus on the Trifecta. I am not completely sold on this concept. Time will tell where those interested in the ...
  • When SAI was released last year(?) there were some strange artifacts as well as other concerns. However, Topaz made these right with a succession of version updates. However, I do not believe same ...
  • AI will get you close. The user then using additional tools makes the tweaks. The final changes in LR easy enough.
  • May be a mis-perception on my part I think they rushed to get it out and never really did complete the PL5 upgrade. They all seem to try in synch with PS/LR releases Oct/Nov. This is the first ...
  • Any idea if PL6 is a major revision?
  • Gigapixel is a niche app where most do not need. I have used it a few times. However, this was a package deal when buying DeNoise. PS/LR have this feature which is comparable.  Unless there is ...
  • My personal experience with Topaz has always been positive. I started with SAI about 4 years ago. I since added the other two apps. As with any app they do some things really well. This depends ...
  • While anything is plausible when it comes to marketing. The only real test is using the trial version on a wide variety of images. Count the images which meets the expected end state. Then make ...
  • Zeee; I understood the comments. My point is a general comment on using AI. There was another post IRT Sky Replacement. Some purist posted against this feature, yet went on to recommend adding ...
  • Lines between cheating and reality are blurred with AI. A little amusing where some post claim PS Sky Replacement is cheating. They then proceed to use post editing tools to change the sky. If we ...
  • I was interested in a portrait filter app 10 years ago. However, did not think the $200 price tag was worth a plugin. Not sure the app is still around these days. PS has since made editing far ...
  • R U using PS and PP 22? There is a lot of power in PS. The Neural filters provide some AI features which can get you close. However, you still have to understand basics. I would save the money on ...
  • Adobe PS does an excellent job of replacing the sky. You can add to the collection of sky replacements. Some will claim this is cheating. However, 90% of great photos are post processed using ...
  • I am not a big fan of consolidating apps into one. This may stem from my days in hifi audio gear. Always prefer separates; no, not a audio cable aficionado. The OEM focuses on the app which is ...
  • Just from past experience Topaz continues to refine the app their apps after release. You will see frequent version releases after downloading.
  • As a recommendation I would hold off until BF. The competition is more fierce or the companies are in a more festive mood :-)
  • Created discussion thread HDR Tone Mapping
    Is anyone using a tone mapping app other than LRx or PS? This is a style which does not appear to have the attention it once had a few years ago. Which begs the question on whether the developers ...
  • I have been using Topaz products for the past 4 years. There cust service is what really has attracted the loyal customer base they have. Always quick to respond to customer inquires and keep the ...
  • I must be missing something in this long string of ISO in post? Why is this important since you are editing you can do several adjustments to the image to replicate change in the ISO.
