New Topaz AI Bundle

These AI-powered tools have been quite popular recently and you can find videos about all of them on my website:

You would spend $359.96 buying these all separately. Because of how popular these products have been, though, Topaz is offering a new AI Bundle for $199.99 until May 4th.

The images below are the processed images by Topaz Sharpen AI. The first image of each set is the full size and the second is the 100% crop of the image. I found the results to be good. In the fourth image the sharpening messed up a spot in her hair when I looked at it in Sharpen AI but I don’t see the problem in this jpg. This could have just been a rendering problem in the software but this could also easily be fixed if you use some masking in Photoshop.

Gary Detonnancourt

Today Topaz released DeNoise 6, an updated version of their noise reduction software, complete with new features. As always, our update is free to anyone who already owns DeNoise, and for those who don’t own it, DeNoise 6 will be on sale ($30 off!) from February 24th – March 20th. Please use the coupon code "NOISEFREE" to take advantage of the discounted price of $49.99 (regularly $79.99). 

Click here to order your copy now!

Topaz DeNoise is designed to let you shoot anywhere in any light and still get crisp, clear and noise-free images. Specializing in extremely noisy high ISO images, DeNoise removes distracting image noise while preserving image detail, giving you the image you wanted without the noise you don’t. Major features introduced in Topaz DeNoise 6 include:

• Standalone Application - DeNoise 6 now works as a standalone product and doesn’t require a host editor to work. Although it can still be used as a plugin through Photoshop, Lightroom, and other supported host programs.
• Camera Specific Presets - DeNoise 6 introduces dozens of presets based on various camera profiles, with multiple ISO presets for each camera. 
• Batch Processing (in standalone mode only) - DeNoise 6 introduces batch processing, allowing you to process a whole folder of images at once. That means no more need for Photoshop actions! Note that batch processing is only available in the standalone version, not the plugin version.
• Support for High DPI (4k) monitors in Windows 7/8/10
