Sharpening subject changes proportions of subject vs background

[Please describe your issue here. Try to include logs (Help → Logging) and add screenshots if necessary.]

Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. process RAW file from Lightroom CC in PhotoAI 3.0.1
  2. RAW denoise, sharpen subject, face recovery of 1 face
  3. Save .tiff back to Lightroom

When comparing TIFF version with original RAW I notice a slight increase of the subject (person) w.r.t. the background. Background seems slightly distorted.

also don’t like the look of the processed face, it lost a lot of structure and seems darker

image sections: original on the left, processed version on the right, both opened, aligned and cropped in photoshop.

thanks - P.
