This week we have updated the camera profile mappings of lots of different cameras. This means that for some images where the colors seemed dull or incorrect, there is potential for them to be fixed now. There is still work being done on updating the profiles for all supported cameras but that will take a bit more time. For the moment if you have images that do not load with correct colors we would appreciate if you could send us examples.
Besides profiles we’ve also fixed a few annoying bugs and made various small UI tweaks. More information can be found in the change log below.
Please give us any feedback or report issues with this release. We’ll be updating TPAI regularly to address those pieces of feedback and issue reports. If there’s a specific image you’d like us to see, you can send it us at this dropbox link.
Removed “Help Improve Autopilot” preference
– Turning the preference on will no longer upload in any version of Photo AI
Fixed 100+ cameras not mapping to correct camera profiles
– There is still work being done to update the profiles themselves
Loosened check on monitor colorspace conversion so more monitor colorspaces should look correct
Copy additional metadata when using the Lightroom Plug-In Extras flow
Currently selected preferences tab now persists within the active session
Added Open Recents option in File menu
Fixed scrolling the file list view with trackpad on Windows only being able to scroll right
Changed minimum value of Face Recovery slider to 1
Fixed some update snoozing issues
Small UI/wording tweaks
– Welcome screen now mentions that you can drop folders
– Preferences panel now has Cancel/Save buttons
– Cursor now shows as waiting when manually checking for updates
– Added tooltip to Original View toggle
– Fixed a layout bug where update information would have lots of extra spacing
– Replaced the sub-menu on the left side of file list to be a collapsible toggle
HDR or Monochrome DNGs which previously did not open may have issues when saving as a DNG
– To get around this you can save as JPEG, PNG, or TIFF which shouldn’t have the same color issues
Do you have a custom color profile for your monitor? I am aware that there are some cases where those have caused issues in the past which is why we had a very strict filter before. Would you mind sending your logs and maybe changing your display profile for the meantime?
If you just want to use the app you can also go to the 1.2.7 thread in the forum and downgrade with the installer there.
Hi, just a request as I cannot see an option to do so.
I use On1 Photo raw NOT Lightroom and export an image from there to Topaz studio AI, I have a folder set up in On1 Browse for image/s run through TP AI but have to move them there once back in On1 so is there or will there be an option within TP AI to choose a folder to send an image to? yes I no you can do so from Windows explorer if the image/s are sent direct from there but that is counter intuitive. Thankyou.
Whatever has been done to the Sharpen tool has ruined it. I always use Sharpen on images I run through Topaz AI, and I couldn’t with this latest upgrade. Everything looks scratchy or “too sharp”? Even adjusting the sharpness down did not help.
What happened? Once upon a time, I could downscale an image to a lower resolution, as much as 50% of the original. Now, when I attempt to do it, TPAI returns an image at the original resolution. Did I miss a note in a recent update. Even though the downscaling was not as wonderful as I could wish, it was at least something. Did y’all know this capability has gone missing?
I want you to know that my absence from this forum over the last months means I have been very pleased with the work y’all are doing. Thanks for all the updates.
BTW, I run TPAI on a late 2015 iMac with 36GB Ram and the latest OS from Apple.
I am not using a custom color profile on my display device (gaming laptop screen). I have tried every installer from 1.1.1 to 1.2.8. They all crash. Here is what I have tried:
Registry clean up prior to each install (HKEY… /SOFTWARE/TOPAZ LABS…
Rolling back installations
I found the log files folder about a half hour ago, and tried searching some of the the issues I read in the log files. It is almost like I am missing a piece of something. My Windows 11 installation is a fresh one off of a drive format. The attached log time stamped 21:178:50 was off of a fresh install, open, click activate, and crash.
I did my cleanup routine: Uninstall, clean registry and this time I backed up the Topaz Labs folder in C:\ProgramData, and then deleted that as well.
Since reading the log led me to believe that something was missing, I disabled all cybersecurity software (Windows cra
ppy built in protection and firewall and McAfee). I think opened powershell as an admin, and ran the install MSI from there. Opened Topaz Photo Ai > Activate > activate page says I am good > crash. That log file is the 21:39:49 time stamp.
Unfortunately I cannot see any improvements on color if RAW images from my OM-1 are loaded into Photo AI.
There is a quite ugly greenish tint to the image. Please see the example below. The left image is how Capture One/Lightroom/On1 Photoraw see the image (which is correct since the photo was taken just before sunrise). The right image is how it looks in Photo AI.
The same problems are in Denoise AI/Sharpen AI. The prevents me from using Photo AI with raw images. Its good for Jpg/Tiff but Raw is not an option as of now.
