Weird artifacts emerging with new Topaz settings

I’m using a Mac Studio & Photoshop. This is a major bug involving using sharpen and denoise at the same time. I’m wondering if I have a corrupted download or installation.

Hi Tim,

My system profile is one chip iteration back from the latest Studio Mac.
The device’s software is up to date.

That’s odd, can you upload the original image file as well so I can test it on my end?

Afraid not. The lady doesn’t want her image out there any more than it already is.
I have looked for others with the aberation but no luck so far. Seems to be a one
off (a few from one session) bug so far. I’ll keep looking tomorrow.

Found something we can use. Same exact edits.

The problem is the original raw photo is 103.5 MB.I don’t think I can send it via email.

I might be able to use drop box.
Here it is saved for web.


Two photos of same subject.


Found another. Tell me how to get the original raw image of this jpg to you.



I would like to try to reproduce the problem on my end to see what’s going on. Please send me the original file to my Dropbox. Let me know when you send something because Dropbox doesn’t always notify me.
