Saturation and white balance problems remain with 1.5. Sadly no improvement

So sorry that Topaz cannot fix this problem. I have commented on it for half a year, but there seems to be no solution. This makes Topaz hard to use since the saturation and color settings change so much. Look how Topaz changes the white balance when you work through Lightroom PlugIn.

@marco.helles We appreciate your patience as we fix these color shift bugs.

Please upload the original unprocessed version here so I can run some tests on my end and see if there’s any bandaid solution for you in the meantime.

Work it through Ligthroom/Archive/Plugin → Topaz and save it back to Lightroom.

Thanks for uploading the image.

It looks like this is a known issue with RAW color and exposure shifts. I’ve documented it for my team to find a solution.

In the meantime, you can try using the Photo > Edit in > Topaz Photo AI workflow which will preserve color and process a TIF instead of a RAW.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we get this fixed for you.

Hi Tim!

Hope you will find the solution to this. TIF is ok in white balance and saturation but not optimal since you want to use all the information provided in RAW and the Topaz reminds you of this when you use TIF.

Good luck and hope to see this problem fixed soon.

I found this post when I was trying to find a solution for my problem. I looks like I am encountering exactly the same issue:

From Lightroom, I am opening a DNG-file in the Topaz Plugin, I sharpen it (or do similar things):

After saving, the result in Lightroom is more saturated than the original:

I am using latest versions (both Lightroom & Topaz Photo AI). None of the files have any adjustments (except of course the Topaz Sharpening), and they have the same colour space ‘Adobe Colour’.

As a workaround, I am using TIF-files instead of DNG-files. But as already mentioned, that’s a bit annoying…
