The difference between Topaz AI plug-in and Topaz AI app (external editor)

Since Topaz AI run as an external editor is not working correctly (I have reported the problem), I tried the File | Plug-in Extras | Process with Topaz AI. This works perfectly.

My question is what is the difference between using the external editor version and the plug-in one and how should I decide which one to use - asuming both were working correctly?

Thank you,


Much of this is dependant on what type of file type you are using. We have some more information about plugins that is linked below:
