Sharpen AI



  • Rick Sammartino Community moderator

    I think you're looking at the Deblur which is at 100%. The sharpening slider is below it. Check the user guide page 129 for more details.

    Much appreciated Rick; I'll check it out later on. :)

    I have a new PC to get PR 2023 working (my old graphics card was too old and not supported with the latest version). I was really looking forward to the new AI tools but am very disappointed. Like in Richard's case it doesn't seem to apply any intelligence. In my limited experience so far it just seems to whack all the noise and sharpening sliders to 100% creating horendous halos. Clearly I can manually adjust the settings but in that case what's the point of the AI tools? Am I doing something wrong?

    Good point Mark; The tool has been updated but it's (as you say) described as an AI tool; if that's the case it should look at the image and determine what are the best settings; is it motion blur or out of focus?

    If we're left to determine for ourselves it isn't an AI tool.

    What do the powers that be at Skylum have to say about that, any comment?

    Most people expect far too much from an "AI". They seem to think it should produce "perfect" results immediately without any user intervention.

    A lot of folks have talked about using Topaz in place of ON1's products. All Topaz's AI products also have sliders to allow the user to fine tune what the AI comes up with for a starting point.

    Even smart cars that can drive themselves warn you to keep your hands on the wheel at all times.
