After playing around with various settings, Sharpen has a “return to autopilot settings”, but Denoise does not. I have to completely quit and restart to return to denoise autopilot settings.
That’s not the expected behavior. If Denoise is suggested by Autopilot, it’ll also have the green backwards arrow if you manually adjust it away from the autopilot settings.
If that’s not happening, you might be missing some model files. Please disable antivirus, firewall, VPN, or proxy that may be on your computer. These are known to block the installer from downloading the model files. Then rerun the installer. You can download a new installer from the downloads page directly. https://topazlabs.com/downloads/
Oh yeah - that is it - the program only allows “prefer sharpen” or “prefer denoise” when it doesn’t think there is enough noise or blur to jump in. Really need an autopilot setting for non-raw images that allows “aways apply both denoise and sharpen”
We find that applying both simultaneously tends to generate artifacts which is why we recommend doing only one.
