DeNoise AI 2.2.0


Released May 27, 2020.

Major Features and Changes

  • Added the ability to mask images.
  • Added a special low light/high color noise model option under DeNoise AI.
    – This model is good at handling high amounts of color noise, especially on high ISO RAW images.
  • Auto updater is now built into the application instead of being a separate program.
    – This will do the update check and download the installer, but will not do the upgrade installation itself.
  • Added a new hotkey (Ctrl + ,) to open preferences on Windows.
  • Menus have been slightly visually updated and now show shortcuts.
  • Changed the recover detail slider step value to be 1 instead of 5.
  • Changed Close Image option to Close All Images under the File menu on Windows.
  • Close warning prompts should now all have the same buttons and do the same actions.
  • New images for splash screen and login window provided by Colby Brown.


  • Fixed 400% preview being offset in some instances.
  • Fixed the close all images option not prompting you to save changes.
  • Fixed update button activating by going between models with no changes.
  • Fixed update button not activating when changing view modes.
  • Fixed a bug with login dialog not staying up in certain cases.
  • Fixed a bug where flipping between images with auto and manual modes would cause the right panel to show incorrect controls.



  • Fixed Low Noise model not working properly when using GPU.
  • Fixed the Remove Noise slider on the DeNoise AI model going to 0 instead of 15 when setting it back to default.
  • Fixed a minor typo in the Low Light tooltip.


  • Fixed calibration not working when using the AI Clear model.
  • Fixed low light model not being appended when append model name is turned on.
  • Fixed 50% zoom not working correctly on Mac
  • Fixed “Noise” being listed twice on the file list view

Known Issues:

  • Moving the navigation panel preview box at the end of processing will not start another preview.
  • Mac users who installed v2.2.0 within the first 30 minutes or so will have to reinstall to get the proper AI models.

Good work! Is there any way to subtract from masking choices?? Thanks!

can the auto settings not include the control of recover detail slider?
i want to set auto mode for a batch of image and enable recover details, just like the default settings of ai clear in topaz studio, but the slider is always zero when the auto mode is enabled
i guess the auto mode won’t calculate suggested value for recover details, i never see a non-zero value for it when auto mode is enabled


If you mean subtracting from your current mask, you can toggle the hide/show button to add or remove strokes.

You are correct that the auto mode does not touch the recover details slider. Recover details will always add back some of the original noise from the image since it blends it back over the denoised version, and auto will not try to do that. I believe you should be able to set the slider itself while still using auto values, but if that is not the case I can take a look at fixing that.

Adam, When I uninstalled DeNoise AI beta right now it also uninstalled my most recent (prior to 2.2.0) commercial rel. product. FYI. Seems like it shouldn’t have done that. I’m only just downloading the full Win installer right now. I did the beta uninstall as a 1st step. Hmmm.

That’s strange, I’ll take a look and see if the beta uninstaller points to the wrong one.

adam, please test it by the following step

  1. add two images first
  2. ensure all the two images are selected
  3. enable auto detect settings
  4. move the recover detail slider to 10
  5. select the second image in the list
  6. recover detail settings is 0, it’s not copied to the second image even all image is selected in the previous step
  7. click back to the first image, recover detail settings is reset to 0 instead of 10 in the step 4

it’s impossible to apply recover detail when auto mode is enabled
even if i only add one image, enable auto mode and set recover to a very high value, the exported image won’t recover detail, it’s not the same as the preview image
please check it. thanks!

Yeah, I just double-checked. Commercial DeNoise AI is definitely gone. Along with the most recent beta. Only thing in my programs list right now is DeNoise 6 (which I don’t wanna lose either…). I’ll do the commercial 2.2.0 install now.

UPDATE: Installer didn’t include an option (check box) to add an icon to my PC desktop. But when I launched from the icon that was still there from the commercial release (that got uninstalled during the beta uninstall) it showed the correct 2.2.0 commercial rel #.

Also, there’s a minor typo in the explanatory note pop up (’?’) adjacent to the Low Lite (nite) Mode. I believe the 1st word in that explanatory pop up should be “Uses” (not, “use” - which sounds like it’s telling users to use something else vs how the program works for them). :wink:

Thanks. No not that. I mean, once you apply a mask, you can press, for example, the option/alt key, turning the brush into a negative one, then brushing away the applied mask.

Hi Adam, It works for me using GPU mode Win 10/GTX1050:

Works for me too. Night Mode on GPU as well, except mine is GTX1060, also Win10 x64.

no this does not Look like “Night Mode”, Night mode is much better.

Very Nice. ISO 2000, 1DX (2012).

AI-Denoise 15/46/0 (Auto) + Night Mode

No Denoise - Output (16bit Tiff) from Capture One.

AI-DeNoise Only 15/46/0 (Auto), No Night Mode.

I hope that GPU Mode will work this evening.

I believe this is a more hidden issue. The low light mode is part of the DeNoise AI network, and Myunghoon reported that when the DeNoise AI network gets loaded it does not process the low light model on GPU mode. So you will still get output, it just won’t actually go through the low light model.

Yep … when I deactivate Low Light Mode:
