Topaz Sharpen AI 2.2.0 is that it allows users to easily create sharp images without artifacts or ghosting. Sharpen AI is the first sharpening and vibration reduction software to differentiate between real detail and noise. Capture sharp images even when shooting handheld, at night or with shallow depth of field.
- Based on AI technology.
Sharpen AI has been trained with millions of images so it can learn detail versus noise characteristics – and then just fine-tune the details. In some cases, it can even restore image details.
- Seamless integration.
Works wherever you are currently editing your photos. Use Sharpen AI as standalone software or as a plugin for Topaz Studio / Photoshop / Lightroom Classic.
- Continue to increase.
Through continuous AI learning, the Sharpen AI enhancement model is getting faster and better over time. You will get the latest and greatest.
- Three types of sharpness for perfect photography.
There’s nothing worse than taking the perfect photo, rushing home, opening it on your computer … and realizing it’s 100% blurry. When this happens, it’s usually caused by one of three problems: camera shake, problems with focus, or general tenderness. Sharpen AI includes separate modules to handle each of them.
- Stabilization: Naturally reduces jitter.
Even the most steady hand can’t match a tripod when it comes to image clarity. Unlike a tripod, you always have a hand! The Sharpen AI Stabilizer has been trained to reverse motion blur and take handheld shots as if they were taken from a tripod.
- Focus: Better focus correction.
Focus correction is a really tricky issue, but the Sharpen AI focus module does an excellent job of blurring the focus by up to ten pixels. It is ideal for sharpening an unfocused eye or for solving problems caused by improper focus on the camera. Tip: use custom settings for best results!
- Sharpness: overall sharpness.
Even without any blur or focus issues, the image usually leaves the camera gently. Sharpen AI includes a Sharpen module which specializes in correcting a little overall softness without artifacts or ghosting.
- The ideal time to sharpen the image.
The need for sharpening is universal: most of the image comes out a little softly from the camera. Here are some use cases where we’ve seen amazing results with Sharpen AI.
- Animal pictures.
You can ask people to pose, but it’s much harder to keep the animal still! Use the Sharpen AI Stabilization Engine to correct for camera shake and the inevitable motion blur you get from fast-moving objects. It is also difficult to focus in such situations, so the Focus module will come in handy. This applies to all photos with fast moving objects – not just animals! Adjust the slider to the left to see a 100% difference, or click before / after.
- Hand-crafted landscapes.
No matter how fast you set your shutter speed, you won’t be able to shoot hand-sharp as with a tripod. You don’t always have a tripod with you. Sometimes you don’t even have the luxury of using a fast shutter speed. The Sharpen AI Stabilization Module helps you get images that look like they were taken from a tripod. This model has been specially designed to counteract the motion blur caused by camera shake and can produce some amazing results in your photos.
- Portrait photography.
Getting portraits with good sharpness is essential. Using controlled lighting and a tripod in a studio setting is a good way to do this, but you’re not always in the studio. Use Sharpen AI if your ideal portrait is slightly out of focus or camera shake.
- A new approach to sharpening.
We believe that the best technology allows you to create the best works of art. The photos taken by thousands of other photographers with artificial intelligence technology are simply amazing.
