The wildfires in the West have been devastating. However, they have created some extraordinary images. This shot was taken yesterday morning about 50 min. after sunrise. I actually did not crop it very much. And in the end, the only two things that I did do to it were crop it and run it through A.I. Gigapixel at 150%. My rationale was that I am finding that you never really know how much help A.I. Gigapixel is going to give you. I think that we would all benefit from running through A.I. Gigapixel any file that we intend to print. (If I am only going to put something up on social media, it would have to be a pretty severe crop to cause me to use Gigapixel.)
I can’t imagine what people are experiencing with the wildfires other that what I see on the news. This image does depict what it affects it can have. It’s a great shot and nicely processed. I agree with you on GP.
Yes, what a terrible disaster especially in California.
This is a great image! What did you do for noise reduction because I hardly can find any? Well done
Good shot. I expect many people like me can’t use AI Gigapixel because it requires a pretty powerful graphics card. It can’t be use with my GeForce GT740 (2GB GDDR5 ram) even though I have a Ryzen 5 2600X CPU. I do have Perfect Resize by On1 which is fractal.
Prior to Gigapixel, I used ON1 Resize for years, going back to the Genuine Fractal days (a name that I prefer). It has saved my bacon more than once and has proved to be more than adequate. It’s simply not as good as Gigapixel.
Interesting discussion, I will have ti watch the webinar and think about the program more!
