Sept. 9 – Sunday Sampler

Happy Sunday! FINALLY feeling a little like Autumn today!

For today’s Sunday Sampler, I took an ordinary image of some Sedona Red Rock gravel, and modified it 3 ways in Topaz. An example of how you can take a texture and create MANY other textures from that one image. You can also change the color palette, blur it more, etc. Enjoy!


A.I. Gigapixel 1.1 Update –
Smarter, sharper, resizing, made even better.

With the latest update to A.I.Gigapixel™ the first and only intelligent image resizer for your computer just became even more powerful. With additional options for image enhancement, 3 sets of new Artificial Intelligence models to resize high-quality input images or even images with a lot of noise. We also refined the A.I. in the existing models to produce even more accurate results.

If you had trouble running the application before, we’ve just added CPU processing so A.I. Gigapixel can now run on most computers!

If you already own A.I. Gigapixel, of course the upgrade is free. If you haven’t purchased yet, CLICK HERE to head to the Topaz shop and save 15% with the code MeredithImages at checkout.

P.S. the black & white bird shot in the store and video is one of mine! I was amazed at how well A.I. Gigapixel enlarged a 4×6 photo 600% with even more detail than the original!

  1. You do a really nice job on the Topaz webinars and I watched the video in this blog. When I download a Sunday Sampler where do I put it. Can in be in an folder in the Topaz Textures? Guess I can just keep it in Photos as another picture and work from there. Ban Capron – Dallas, TX
