Topaz Labs Photo AI has been officially released, so take a look here to see what it is, how to use it, and how well it sharpens a blurry photograph.
The days are coming, my friends, when photography will be little more than software manipulation of data. Believe me, I am not a convert who's jumped on early and is screaming my lungs out from the heavens that you must all follow suit or perish. I hate that software platforms are eliminating so many skills piece by piece and leaving many of us to ponder if we actually belong in the future. But make no mistake, the future is AI. It's simply a matter of how far AI goes and how far you're willing to let it infiltrate your own world. All that being said, some of the developments coming out now are quite remarkable, and you can't help but marvel at them.
And that brings us to this great video by Anthony Morganti, in which he introduces you to Topaz Labs' newly released Photo AI. Before I go any further, it's important to point out that if you already own Topaz Labs' Image Quality bundle, you can get the new Photo AI for free. It's also important to note that it works as a Photoshop/Lightroom plugin or as a standalone platform. So, what makes the new Photo AI different from the software in the existing bundle, and how does it all work? Morganti uses a blurry image of a bird as his example, but I'll let you watch so you can be the judge. However, it's safe to say that I'll be getting it and trying it out pronto. Let me know your thoughts below.
