TPAI does not always apply upscaling settings when autopilot is set to upscale to a fixed output height. (This occurs when the other settings are portrait for subject, sharpen medium and high for blurred images, and no face detection.)
After dropping a folder of images onto TPAI, each shorter than the auto-upscaling height setting, and pressing “Save”, autopilot does not upscale all images to the desired height. Note there are no tiny images, and that most don’t need more than 1.5 or 2.0x upscaling, and many only need 1.1x.
If I click on each image’s thumbnail in the carousel first, sometimes the upscaling icon is shown over the thumbnail, other times not. When the icon is missing, the upscaling control shows the toggle is off too, yet the output height and upscaling factor settings near the bottom have the right values even though they’re not applied to upscale the image when it is processed.
If I manually toggle upscaling on in this case, the green dot on the thumbnail disappears. Note alsow that the green dot it is present when autopilot has turned on upscaling it’s own.
Sometimes, after clicking on another thumbnail and then back to the previous, it will show upscaling toggled on and the upscaling icon shows on the thumbnail, even though I have not changed the controls or interacted with the image.
Prior to I believe version 1.1.8 (??), the autopilot output height was always respected and output images always had the desired height if the input was shorter. This led me to believe that the setting meant that the output would be set to the configured height. Now, it appears that maybe autopilot determines that if upscaling won’t improve the image quality, then it won’t upscale. If this was a design change, I would request that the previous behavior be restored, that is, always apply the Auto-Upscaling autopilot settings. If this is a bug, please fix it so my workflow doesn’t require clicking on every thumbnail and manually turning on upscaling when autopilot doesn’t.
