There seems to me to be a wide disparity between two types of users on this forum. I personally believe the majority of Photo AI users are blowing up grandma’s face and other non critical, dabbling type uses.
I suspect these users are Topaz’s bread and butter folks. There’s nothing wrong with that. But, I sense because Topaz may be focused on hobby level folks, the working level, pro users are perhaps getting sold short on development time, given they are likely a minority.
There are us pro level users who require proper batch, speed, blurry issues fixed, totally off settings for auto pilot, high end new feature development, or whatever else has been asked for from pro users.
I don’t know about the other pro users, ***but I personally would be willing to pay a pro level price if there were a pro level Photo AI, where development and bug fixing was top priority for that version and issues/new pro features got resolved quickly.
And, on Topaz’s end they had money coming in from the higher priced version to justify getting pro level development done.**
Or, maybe for the pro version, rather than a higher price, Topaz has a more frequent renewal fee.
Is this possible? Would other pro users or Topaz like this idea?
As it is now, I believe one Photo AI ring to rule over them all isn’t working out right.
Also, having a higher priced or more frequent renewal fee for a pro version might aid in showing Topaz how many pro users they have or don’t have.
