Hi John, Thank you for your quick response.

I have included here a handbrake compressed video of my screen that includes system info, and Lightroom to Topaz Photo AI roundtrip attempt…
also included here is a system info file

A sidenote I find it works even slower on my computer on battery power vs plugged in.

Thanks for sending the system profile information and screen recording. That was very helpful to understand what might be causing this issue.

Please follow the instructions below to perform a clean install to better troubleshoot why you had this problem with Topaz Photo AI:

First please make sure that you have Lightroom Classic fully closed before proceeding.

Start by clearing any previous plist files that are on your computer for Topaz Photo AI by following the steps in the link below:

After you have done this, disable any antivirus, firewall, VPN, or proxy software that might be active on your computer. These tools are sometimes known to interfere with the installer’s ability to download the model files.

Please also ensure that the Topaz Photo AI installer has all the proper settings in your system by going to your Mac System Settings > Privacy & Security tab and scrolling down to the security section. You will want to make sure you have 'App Store and identified developers ’ selected. Here is a video example:

Finally, rerun the installer. You can download a new installer from the downloads page directly :
