Topaz Photo AI 3.0.3 Still does not work with Nikon Z8 or Zf

I see the old threads reporting the same issue have been locked. The color is completely off when going from Lightroom to Topaz - to the point that the program is unusable (a shame because it used to save my low-light images). Has anyone found a work around to fix it? I was hopeful that the 3.0.3 update would solve the issue (since the update said it would)…no dice.

It’s possible that the problem hasn’t been fixed for you because your colour shifting is caused by a different bug/issue. I would recommend giving a complete report of what is happening on your system (with examples and screenshots), so it might be possible to diagnose the problem.

Would you mind sending in some more information to get a better understanding of the problem you are having with this particular type of image? Please send the following information:

  1. The original image file.
  2. The processed image.
  3. A screenshot or description of the settings panel so I can see what adjustments were turned on.

Tried to batch process with photos taken with Nikon Z8. Photos are coming out the wrong colour and pixelated. Tried again on another computer with the same settings and it came out the same. It seems like Photo AI is not compatible with Z8 files.

I know this has been an ongoing issue and an update was supposed to fix it but I am still having the same problem and it appears others are also.

The only way I can batch process is to convert my NEF files to a TIFF first and then process. An extra step and more time used in a busy work schedule.

Can this be looked into again please!
