This update brings a number of changes, including interface improvements, a new AI engine which allows processing images faster, and supercharged AI models allowing you to upscale and enhance low resolution images up to 600% and offers improvements with newer hardware including slightly sharper output than the legacy models.
Topaz Labs have provided the below from the changelog:
- AI engine has been brought into Gigapixel. This should greatly improve performance on modern hardware.
- All models updated for those on newer hardware. These models should be slightly sharper than the legacy models
- New model – “Very Compressed”
- New trial flow. No more 30-day trials, but instead a trial will place a watermark on your image
- “Send Feedback” option in the Help menu – have a feature request you want to send to the dev team? Use this option to send us a 500-character report.
- Interactive tooltips have been added for each model, to get a quick sense of what each can do
- Controls tutorial has been slightly updated
- Better caching when saving
- Preview window should not show as blank before previewing for the first time
- Filenames should elide in the middle instead of the left
- DNG support should be fully-functional for those coming from pre-5.4.x versions of Gigapixel
- “Loading images” text no longer overlaps the FileListView caret
