DNG-file contains a watermark looking copy of the subject

Upgraded to Topaz Photo AI 3.0.4. It now creates a watermark looking copy of the main subject (a bird). The resultat is useless.

Was this image cropped?

Yes, I cropped it in Topaz.

Please take a screen recording of this behavior so I can see exactly what is happening in order to share this workflow and issue with the developers so they can investigate.

Loom is a great free application for this: Loom | Free Screen & Video Recording

Try cropping it outside TPAI first, and then process it in TPAI.

I did that after posting this topic. That worked well.

Sorry, but I do not want to install this software.

I don’t really do much. I open a Sony rawfile from Lightroom Classic. I then crop it in TPAI. I do not touch any other sliders, or menychoices. I tried the same with a different picture. The result was similar to the picture posted in this topic.

I tried the same picture, without cropping it in TPAI. That worked just fine. It may then be cropped in Lightroom. The disadvantage is a much larger DNG-file.
