A.I. Gigipixel 1.1 released.

I recently reviewed the initial release of A.I. Gigapixel and concluded it was a great Image Resize tool. Its main problems were the speed on low end graphics cards and it didn’t support many low end graphics cards at all.

This new release fixes the graphics card issue – the software will now run using your PC’s CPU if the graphics card fails to process the image.

I did a quick re-test and found it to still be a very, very effective image resizer. It is especially effective at upsizing low resolution images. The results are better than Photoshop, Affinity Photo and On1.

Here’s a quick example:

Original Image – 1080 x 720 pixels:

Image upsized to 4320 x 2880 pixels:

The result speaks for itself, I think…

Image Resizing

The best image resize program is Topaz A.I.Gigapixel

Image sharpening & noise reduction

Topaz A.I.Sharpen can not only sharpen images but correct slightly out of focus and blurred images.

Topaz A.I.Clear both sharpens and removes noise. It is the best noise reduction program around.

Photoshop and Lightroom Alternatives

Exposure X4 is the best alternative to Lightroom as far as image browsing and management goes. It is also a decent RAW converter and image editor.

Affinity Photo is the complete Photoshop replacement.

RAW Development

Skylum Luminar is a full featured RAW converter with a basic image browser. Its shadow recovery is the best in the business.

Photolemur is an automatic RAW converter, based on Luminar. Its results are very decent with facial detection and enhancement.

Photo Ninja is a purists RAW converter. It is not as fully featured as the others but it produces some of the best results, especially if you are prepared to build camera profiles.
