Artifact V2.01 Win 10

Using Photo AI V2.01, I am still getting artifacts. I have got them before on Photo AI or Sharpen over the past years and had hoped V2 would get rid of them. I processed an NEF file using auto pilot and made no adjustments and saved the file. Then I processed again and reduced the amount of sharpening by about 1/4. Still artifacts. Look to the right and left of the cat’s nose. How dp I get rid of these
Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
  3. Step 3

Topaz Photo AI [v1.x.x] on [Windows/Mac]

Thanks for reaching out. Please send the following information so I can try to reproduce this.

  1. The original image file.
  2. The processed image.
  3. A screenshot or description of the settings panel so I can see what adjustments were turned on.

I can take a look at what is causing this issue.


Thank you for the prompt reply to my question.

I have sent to you via dropbox the original NEF and processed DNG files.

Attached is the screenshot.

I get this problem less with V2 and V2.01, but as you can see still sometimes.

Any help you have is appreciated.



in the dropbox , I gave you the wrong email.

Please look for it under

Please let me know if you received my email and images and if you were able to see what the problem is.


Thank you for following up. I was able to get the artifacts next to the nose when using the Sharpen - Standard model.

However, switching to the Standard v2 model seems to prevent this behavior. Does using the Standard v2 model work for you or are you seeing a different artifact than the one I am pointing out?

The Standard v2 model will be replacing the Standard v1 model soon.
