Updated: January 2023 Roadmap
You can now get Topaz Photo AI v1.1 with a new raw model, better AI Brush, snappier previews, better noise detection, and more. This is our biggest update since release; we’re really proud of it and hope you like it! You will see Topaz Photo AI continue to improve each Thursday.
Topaz Photo AI’s core value is that it helps you maximize image quality on autopilot, so our team has been focused on both the quality and consistency of your results. To that end, right now we’re mainly working on improving the image quality models, autopilot accuracy, subject refinement, and performance.
We’re actively working on these features:
- New upscaling model (Enhance Resolution) for finer detail and more natural results. In internal testing, this new model significantly outperforms our existing upscaling models in both Gigapixel and Topaz Photo AI.
- Improve blur estimation so Autopilot can enable or disable Sharpen more reliably.
- Further improve subject refinement based on AI Brush feedback
- For raw images: improve strong raw noise parameter estimation and allow Autopilot to select it.
- Add Configure Autopilot option to enable or disable Remove Noise at various noise levels, similar to the current Sharpen option.
After that, here’s what’s next:
- New Remove Noise model for non-raw images that preserves more detail and responds better to slider changes.
- New Sharpen model for focus and motion blur that creates fewer artifacts.
- Add cropping and allow optional auto-upscaling to original image dimensions.
- Improve subject detection model accuracy to reduce how often you need to refine inaccurate subjects
- Add Apple Photos extension
- Improve the batch processing workflow
We’re also improving performance, reducing memory, and fixing bugs every release. We aim to release most of these improvements within the next few months, although there’s not a firm timeline. While you’ll likely see this roadmap change based on feedback, in the meantime we hope this shows you the direction we’re taking the product.
