Developing a solution that would use your AI to automatically enhance all low-resolution images to 300 dpi in PDF files would be a dream solution for me as a printer.
In the graphic arts, we receive a lot of files with poor quality images every day.
When we provide our expertise, we have to regularly warn our customers of this, otherwise their images will be printed in poor quality.
This wastes our time…
I’ve been using tools like Enfocus PitStop and Callas PDF Toolbox for years.
These plug-ins, combined with Adobe Acrobat, can detect low-definition images and apply corrective measures using extrapolation and sharpness… But the results are not as convincing.
I’m currently using your Photoshop plugin to optimize some of the images embedded in the PDFs we receive.
But it requires some manipulation.
1 -I have to edit them from Adobe Acrobat in Photoshop.
2 - Convert them to RGB so that they can be opened by your plugin in Topaz Photo IA.
3 - After increasing their resolution, I convert them back to CMYK.
4 - Then I save the image in Photoshop to integrate it back into the original PDF.
What a lot of manipulations!
I can do it occasionally, but not on PDFs with many poor-quality images… it’s too tedious and not very profitable.
If I could combine your algorithms with AI, it would be a godsend for saving precious time in commercial printing.
