Working in Lightroom on a photo of the Eiffel Tower at night from a recent trip to Paris. I sent the Canon CR3 raw file to Photo AI using the Plug-In Extras option. When the file got back to Lightroom, Photo AI did some really strange stuff with the Eiffel Tower. There’s a halo of the tower turned 90 degrees. Granted, this image is loaded with noise but when I use DeNoise AI and Sharpen AI on this same raw file, I do not get this effect. Even stranger, if I open the files in Mac Preview, the horizontal Eiffel Tower is not there. It seems to only be showing in Lightroom and is present in Lightroom exports.
I’ve uploaded a zip file containing the CR3 and JPG export from Lightroom for testing.
Steps to reproduce issue:
Import CR3 to Lightroom. Do not convert to DNG.
Send the CR3 to Lightroom using File → Plug-In Extras
View the resulting DNG file to see the strangeness.
I am not a LR user. However I am not seeing the ghosting in PR 2023. Hopefully other LR users will come along and test the image as well. Or raise a direct Support request and send the file.
