Extraordinarily slow

I am using a macbook pro with M1 Pro,16GB, and Sonoma 14.1 and just purchased the upgrade to version 3.0.1

for some reason the software is running so slowly to be almost unuseable on a scanned image 2668x4128 pixels scanned and saved asb a JPG changing to another image makes no digfferernce

I am sure that when i first started to use Topaz it worked very well and really fast

Please follow the instructions below to perform a clean install to better troubleshoot why you had this problem with Topaz Photo AI:

Start by clearing any previous plist files that are on your computer for Topaz Photo AI by following the steps in the link below:

After you have done this, disable any antivirus, firewall, VPN, or proxy software that might be active on your computer. These tools are sometimes known to interfere with the installer’s ability to download the model files.

Please also ensure that the Topaz Photo AI installer has all the proper settings in your system by going to your Mac System Settings > Privacy & Security tab and scrolling down to the security section. You will want to make sure you have 'App Store and identified developers ’ selected. Here is a video example:
