Topaz Photo AI launches today with all of its automatic image tools in one program

Topaz Labs has launched its new Photo AI program which combines all of its most popular image tools under one umbrella. Image editing tools automatically detect and correct image quality issues using artificial intelligence.

According to the company, Topaz Photo AI will help photographers optimize image quality faster and more accurately than ever before. It does this by combining its extensively trained AI models and deep learning capabilities with what it calls its Autopilot Inspector, which improves RAW workflow options.

“Getting a clean, crisp, high-resolution photo is really important, but the current process of increasing image quality is quite slow and error-prone. To solve this problem, we designed Topaz Photo AI to is an image quality autopilot, detecting unique issues in your image and intelligently applying the right methods to optimize resolution, detail and clarity,” said Eric Yang, CEO of Topaz Labs.

Until now, Topaz Labs offered three separate programs to fix common image problems. It offered DeNoise AI for removing noise, Sharpen AI for blurring soft focus images, and Gigapixel AI for upscaling low resolution images. However, the images often had more than one problem to solve, so they combined them all into a single editor that could detect problems to solve.

“With Topaz Photo AI, we want to make the entire process of identifying these key image quality issues and applying the most appropriate solutions automatic and transparent. This process is exactly what we set out to build for Topaz Photo AI,” says Partha Acharjee, Principal Research Engineer at Topaz Labs.

With Topaz Photo AI’s Autopilot, the company takes it a step further by automatically analyzing user photos and applying the right templates and settings. The company hopes this will free up photographers to apply the creative edits that make their photos unique. “This is something no AI model can ever replace,” the company points out.

The autopilot works by analyzing each frame. First, the autopilot detects noise and defocus issues across the entire image. Images may suffer from luminance noise, color noise, or mixed noise, as well as motion blur or lens blur during capture. The software determines the specific denoising and sharpening models to use, and applies the automatic strength settings.

The next step in the process is for the autopilot to automatically detect all faces in the image and distinguish low quality faces from high quality faces. Based on this face detection, the autopilot will automatically apply face enhancement to all low quality faces detected.

The final step is to have the autopilot detect protruding objects. Depending on how sharp the subject is, the autopilot may apply sharpening to it, allowing it to be more pronounced in relation to the rest of the image.

Photo AI is designed to fit a variety of workflows, from RAW or JPEG to Lightroom or Capture One. The company promises that it will run much smoother and with better overall integration than previous Topaz Lab apps.

Topaz Photo AI is available today for $199 directly from the company’s website for Windows and Mac computers. There is currently a $40 discount if you purchase before October 7, 2022.
