ON1 Resize AI 2022 – Demo

I was given access to a pre-release version of ON1 Resize AI from ON1, the company that makes software packages including Photo RAW. I have written about ON1 Resize AI 2022 in the past but this is a software utility that uses AI and machine learning to intelligently enlarge your images.

It should be noted that the version I have reviewed is a pre-release version, so there may be changes between this version and the final version. nonetheless, it does give you an idea about the software and what it is capable of doing.

The interface (in my opinion) looks very similar to the ON1 style, there are preview presets on the left-hand side of the screen, and on the right-hand side of the screen are the image parameters, and the settings (I.e. how much you want to enlarge the image, what sharpening et al you want to apply).

With respect to the software, this performs fairly similar to most of the ON1 software giving you a significant amount of flexibility in how you want to control the enlargement, the ability to add sharpening, film grain, tiling, and gallery wrap. The tiling is a cool feature as it allows you to split the image into multiple tiles so that you could have three separate photos (i.e. vertical panels) out of the one landscape photo. Gallery Wrap creates extended margins around your photo which allow you to wrap the photo around wooden stretcher bars (for canvas prints).

To provide examples of how the software performs (below), I fed in some of my own images and showed the enlarged portion (Image 2), or in the case of Image 3, I enlarged all images to 5000px (about 2x enlargement) using Lightroom defaults, or ON1 Resize AI 2022 (with sharpening on), I then cropped the image in tighter (the same for each) and presented these side by side. You can see more of an image by dragging the slider, left hand side is the lightroom enlarge whilst the right-hand side is the ON1 Resize AI 2022 enlarge.


Demo Images (my own):

Image 2: one of my images where I have enlarged and cropped part of the butterfly using Resize AI 2022 and presented it in the outline to the right. Note this is how it looks enlarged, but I have not shown compared to the original enlargement
Image 3: An eastern yellow robin which was enlarged using lightroom (left) and ON1 Resize AI 2022 (Right). ON1 and lightroom were enlarged about 2x before being cropped tighter, and ON1 had some sharpening enabled.
