Thanks for the reply. I sent the original NEF image as well as the Processed DNG file. I don’t know exactly what settings I used but the enhancements were DeNoise, Face Recovery and Sharpening. The first 2 were what the AI model chose and I added the sharpening. The color shift happened before I applied the sharpening. The ISO was 20,000 if that helps.

Other than the color shift, the images looked great.



I was able to replicate this color shift you are reporting on my machine and have reached out to some of the developers and will be sure to let you know once I have more information regarding this issue.

A current workaround you could try using is processing this image with the External Editor plugin which is accessed through the following path Photo > Edit In > Topaz Photo AI

Thanks. I did try it as a plugin in PS and noted that it does not exhibit the bug in my initial report.
