Topaz Gigapixel AI for Mac5.3.1

04 December 2020

AI based image upscaling tool.

What is Topaz Gigapixel AI for Mac

Topaz Gigapixel AI knocks traditional upscaling tools off their pedestals.

Enlarging your image without losing detail has always been impossible… until now. Upscale your photos by up to 600% while perfectly preserving image quality.

Breathtakingly sharp prints. High-resolution cropping in post-production. iPhone photos that look like they came out of a DSLR.

No matter why you’re enlarging your photos, you always want the best possible quality for your results. Gigapixel AI is currently the only photo enlargement product available that can actually add detail back to your upscaled photo.

What's new in Topaz Gigapixel AI

Version 5.3.1:

Note: The downloadable file is an installer that will install the product when opened.

Major Features:
  • New AI mode: "Art". Best for CGI imagery, scanned in prints of paintings and drawings, and graphic design imagery. Also works best for images that have a lot of color shifting.
  • New control: "Reduce Color Bleed". Turn this feature on if you notice a lot of color shifting / color bleeding
Improvements:
  • File list interface has been completely overhauled. Icons and text should no longer overlap at smaller resolutions.
  • Processing interface has been overhauled. A panel on the right now shows up when saving images telling you the overall progress, and sticks around after processing to let you know that all your files have been processed.
  • Tutorial interface has been redone. Markers now show directly on the various buttons, and should no longer misalign.
  • Tooltip styling now fits with the rest of the program
  • A message now displays when scaling above 600%, to let users know that quality preservation cannot be kept above that percentage. You can turn this dialog off completely after the first time it shows.
  • When in external editor mode, the "Save images" button has been changed to an "Apply" and "Cancel" button.
Bug fixes:
  • Multiple crash fixes. Program should no longer crash upon first launch for the majority of users that this was happening to.
  • Crop should now correctly display the entire image, and not just a small section of the image
  • When exiting crop mode, the application will remember whether you had auto-update preview on or off, and which view mode you were using
  • You should no longer have to hit "Save" twice after cancelling the preview when you’re ready to save your images.
  • Photoshop plugin should now show up under File -> Automate on new installs of the program
  • The first file in a batch should no longer appear to double-process
Known Issues:
  • When scaling images to 32,000 x 32,000, the preview scale doesn’t get correctly set when switching images. This won’t affect final output of the image.
  • If the Photoshop plugin won’t launch on a specific image, you’ll need to assign a color profile to it first in Photoshop (Edit -> Assign Profile).
  • GPU has artifacting that CPU processing does not. A fix should be released for this in the next version.

When it works, this app actually does a very good job of upscaling photos, which dramatically improve the image quality. However, it looks like software ported from another os platform, and the way it looks and behaves are odd in macOS environment. Plus, since v.5.3 update, the installer crashes immediately after opening, so I haven't been able to update/install. I contacted the developer for support 2 weeks ago, but despite their assurance of actively working on the problem, it is still not fixed by this v.5.3.1 update. I am very disappointed.

I've been doing uprezzing for nearly two decades. I used this product on a host of images couldn't see any measurable difference. Given that the developer is trying to charge more than competitors that actually can do the job, I'd say this software deserves a ZERO star rating. The OpenSource community has some functional code if you want to develop something like this. No need to pay for zero delta processing.

$100 ?! ..hm..no way. There are plenty applications that do quality upscaling for $30 and less.
