I’ve searched the Topaz website and can’t find the ‘offline installer’ for v4.5. Instead, I had to use the ‘online installer’ - which requires the downloading of a Gig or so of actual installation files - which is needlessly problematic for future installations caused by HDD crash, virus, etc.
You guys seem to be a bit too obsessed with making your customers jump through hoops just so they can conveniently use the software for which they paid.
Hi Eric, There is a small glitch with the interface for Batch Processing. If I do as follows I then need to press Start Batch Processing twice, probably because the preview of the first is still visable:
Open an image and then set the parameters etc.
Open a second or third etc., set the parameters, and then select Start Batch Processing
Press Start on the output panel and it simply returns to the main screen with the preview no longer visible and no processing underway.
After returning I press Start Batch Processing again, the parameters panel shows, and I must press Start to start the process.
Unfortunately I can no longer drag and drop photos into GP from XnView (or Explorer), while I can in v4.4.5.
Processing seems to take about twice the time as v4.4.5, (Settings; 2x Size, High Quality Jpeg Output). v4.5.0 took as much time per photo to complete the first part (I assume resizing) as v4.4.5 does to resize, compress to HQ Jpeg and save the photo.
I am on Windows 10. When I try to drag and drop any image file, my mouse cursor turns into a “not allowed” symbol when I hover over Gigapixel. When I then let go no files are added to Gigapixel. Drag-and-drop works in all other applications
edit: Also when I try to save the image as a tiff in the sRGB colorspace, the output image is in Adobe98??
congrats for the updated release.
Unfortunately I am facing an issue that is getting nerving to me. I face download isues and would need the full installer of the software. For Sharpen and DeNoise one could find this relevant link in the Download Center. WOuld be a great relief, if you could make the full installer available there in general, as I prefer doing the installation locally.
Thanks for your reply and stay in good health these days.
Last night the Windows download link was ‘active’…just did not have time to do it on my modest ADSL connection.
But now, the link is dead and it seems the file is no longer there to download. Therefore it would be great to know what is happening and when it will be ready again??? Or is v4.5.1 in the pipeline Though oddly the Mac .dmg file is still available!
