A First Look at Topaz Sharpen AI

Download a free trial here.

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.

Merlin Bird ID App.

Gary Detonnancourt

Ever wonder what kind of bird you just saw or photographed?

Every now and then a really cool app. comes out that is worth giving a try and I think the Merlin Bird ID app. is one of them.  This app. is free and can be downloaded for IOS and Android or can be used right from the Cornell Lab website.  Simply upload the image, crop in on the bird, pinpoint certain spots on the bird and Merlin will tell you what kind of bird it is.  If you don't have any bird images you may download the images below to give it a try.

If you would like to learn how to get started with the hobby of birding, check out this great article called, "The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Bird Watching".
