Topaz Labs recently released its all-in-one Photo AI suite that magically removes noise, sharpens, and increases resolution all at the single click of a button. But how does it compare with its own individual products, in this case DeNoise AI?
If you're not familiar with Topaz Labs' editing products, for a long while now they've been up towards the top of the tree for correcting noise in an image and sharpening as well. Until a short time ago, Topaz Labs' products were separate, in that you had DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Gigapixel AI. The first two are self-explanatory in what they do, while Gigapixel AI adds resolution to an image, which can really help if you want to print an image at large sizes. You could (and still can) buy them all separately, or buy them as part of a bundle. If you bought them as a bundle, you still had to use them independently of each other. Very recently, however, Topaz Labs released Photo AI, which is an all-in-one software that removes noise, sharpens, and increases resolution with a single click. It sounds amazing, but how does it compare when used against its own individual products?
That brings us to this great video by Anthony Morganti, in which he puts the new Photo AI up against DeNoise AI, to see which one works better at noise removal. It's a fascinating experiment, simply because it's putting a company's products up against each other. Whatever the result, you can only deduce that there must be some form of cannibalization going on. If Photo AI comes out on top, does it make DeNoise AI entirely redundant? And if DeNoise AI wins, does it mean Topaz Labs has wasted its time on the new Photo AI? Give the video a look and let me know your thoughts. Personally, I like retaining the control that DeNoise AI gives me.
