Topaz Photo AI 2.2.0: Point-and-click masking
« on: November 04, 2023, 01:48:15 pm »

Topaz Photo AI version 2.1.0 is a big release with the initial implementation of a new feature called "Remove Tool". This feature allows you to remove objects from photos by simply masking them out.

Samples show removal of an unwanted object from an earlier AI-generated image with 4X enlargement plus lighting and color adjustment.

Thanks Peano!

This particular photo was taken on a visit to Catalina Island back around 1990. Something went wonky with my Canon lens and the aperture was stuck open, it seems.

I was pleased to see that Photo AI maintained the bokeh effect in its restoration.

BTW, you've got a fun website!

Topaz is taking the week off of development updates for the holidays but has their Black Friday sale active instead!

Here's a facial recovery example I did today in Photo AI from a tiny section of a photo postcard dated 1910.

I was going to say "good eye!" kers but i think the alignment is good.

The restoration of the eyes makes them look longer, whereas in the original the ends fade into pixel mush.

Samples of old historical photo copywork restorations. Facial enhancement is always fun!
