I’m a bit lost now how to denoise and sharpen your images in LR or PS
Here are several workflows I use (used), none of them is giving me a satisfying workflow and result.
Working in LR:
I first select my images and process them in LR
Once I get the desired look and feel, I finalise them in Photo AI.
Methode Nr 1:
Rightclick on image / edit in / Topaz Photo AI
Topaz Photo AI opens up and creates a TIF file.
When I denoise and sharpen my image, I get an ugly red/green/blue noise on the new file.
Almost worse then the original, see comparision
Method Nr 2:
I go to File / Plugin-in Extras / Process with Topaz Photo AI
Topaz Photo AI opens up and creates a DNG file.
Yes, indeed, I get a much better result, no RGB noise, also a better sharpening
But when the file is saved:
- it forgets to add the flag to the image. Colorlabel and rating is added. Very annoying.
- It forgets to add the crop I’v done to the image, I have to sync again between the 2 images to get my correct crop.
Method Nr 3:
Rightclick on image / edit in / Adobe Photoshop 2024
PS opens up and creates a TIF file.
I go to Filter / Topaz Labs / Topaz Photo AI
Again I get that ugly RGB noise
Yes, I keep my crop, flag and other parameters
It gives me the impression the plugins work in different ways and give me different results
What do I need to do to get the best of both worlds, I mean:
- no RGB noise
- and keeping my workflow
- keeping TIF files, I like to use TIFs, especially when I make extra processing in PS.
Kind regards to all
