Strange artefacts on photo viewed in "check for dust" checker after processing with Topaz photo AI

Hi, after I’ve denoised and sharpened a photo using the TPAI plugin on Photoshop 2024 and saved the photo using the photoshop export as settings. The issue occurs when it is uploaded to, where there seems to be grid-like artefacts visible, when viewing it on the “check for dust” checker. Considering my main use is aircraft photography, I can’t get photos on Jetphotos when using Topaz Photo Ai.
Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. Step 1: take photo of plane in blue sky.
  2. Step 2: Use the topaz photo ai photoshop plugin and use autopilot recommended settings for remove noise and sharpen.
  3. Step 3: Use the “export as” setting on photoshop (set it to jpg, quality 7, 1600 pixels width).
  4. Upload it to and use the “check for dust” checker, which will reveal the grid-like artefact.

Thanks Cameron
