Topaz Gigapixel 7 release notes:

For Standard and High Fidelity v2 are have changed the following:

  • For Standard we’ve improved the deblur consistency (blurry patch issue)
  • For High Fidelity we’ve improved the grain preserving consistency for low denoise/remove jpeg sliders
    • For use cases requiring keeping original noise/grain, select this model and tune down the two sliders.
  • For High Fidelity we’ve fixed the tile blending artifacts
  • For both models we’ve fixed the tile artifacts on Apple Silicon Mac’s Neural Engine
    • In Photo we have an option to turn off Neural Engine but it will slow down processing
  • For quality in general, the models should be more generative

Important notes:

  • All preferences will be reset when updating to this version! Make sure to re-check your preferences (and check out the new ones too).
  • It is expected that you will need to re-authenticate with the updated version on first launch.
  • On first run models that were updated will re-download automatically. On subsequent runs if we detect invalid models it should auto re-download them.
  • Mac: The new minimum OS version is 11.0 (Big Sur). Due to the way the old in-app updater works, you may be offered an update while not on Big Sur.

Major changes:

  • Updated AI engine which should allow better compatibility and faster processing
  • Added Standard and High Fidelity v2 models
    • These models will eventually replace v1 models in time. If you have quality issues, please let us know.
  • Refreshed the UI with new design and controls
  • Updated preferences with new options
    • Note: This will fully reset your preferences

Notable additions:

  • Added panning and pinch to zoom gestures in preview
  • Added updated RAW preview handling (should be closer to Photo AI)
  • Added ability to capture before/after in split and side by side views
  • Added ability to move the file list up and down via dragging
    • Note: There is a known issue where removing/adding images causes it to snap back to the default position
  • Changed logic for selections
  • Changed controls to show mixed states if multiple images with different values are selected
