Your suggestion on which Topaz to use on my photos first

I just purchased the bundle Topaz Sharpen AI, DeNoise AI and Gigapixel AI.
I want to use all 3 of them, on some of my photos.
Which AI should I use first, i mean in what order

I usually shoot in RAW. When I need to crop only a detail from a Foto my first step in my workflow is GigapixelAI 6.1, crop saved in DNG which than is processed either in DXO, C1, or PS, and if necessary I use DenoiseAI or SharpenAI plugin.
Fotos shot in high ISO (>>ISO 1000) get a 1st cleanup by DenoiseAi batch to DNG.
Note: DNGs out of Gigapixel 6.1 are darker than the original RAWs, and need to be corrected.

Thank you for the info.
All my photos are scanned from a photo scanner and saved in JPG
They are not of great quality and is why I’m using these Topaz software,
but don’t know which one to use first. I’m thinking maybe Gigapixel, Denoise and lastly Sharpen. Need more suggestions on these criteria.

I would think you would want to remove bad pixels (ie noise) first before further processing, but that’s just my opinion. Others may have different thoughts.


There’s a good article on the support page on this subject.
