Artifacts

If I go above 60% sharpening and denoise with v3, the app seems to add small white speckled artifacts to the image. Any suggestions or fixes?

Would you mind sending in some more information to get a better understanding of the problem you are having with this particular type of image? Please send the following information:

  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.

You can securely submit your image(s) to my Dropbox using the link below.

Thanks for your help!

Attached are two images pre and post processing with Topaz AI v3.02.
The problem is most apparent on older, lower resolution photographs.

PHOTO #1:

PRE PROCESSING:

POST PROCESSING :

Note, images were processed at 2x with both 70% and 80# sharpen, lens blur and denoise.
Post processed images show improvement of the face, but with new artifacts of the eyes, ears, teeth and hands that weren’t on the original photo.

PHOTO #2 :

PRE PROCESSING :

POST PROCESSING :

Note, images were processed at 2x and 70% sharpen, lens blur and denoise.
Post processed images of the crocodile are composed of a series of blocks that weren’t part of the original image.

These examples looks to be from over processing while using Topaz Photo AI. I would recommend lowering the values of the enhancements you are using then export the images. If you need further processing run the files back through the application to see if the artifacts are still present.

Ok. Thanks .
