Using Plug-Ins to Make Creative Images

I’ll use some of my favorites like Nik & Luminar, as well as some of my newer software finds!


Image in Competition

Ok friends, I need your vote!!! I entered a contest for photos to be on the 2023 TN Wildlife Resources Agency calendar. There were over 5,000 entries. They’ve narrowed it down to 10 entries in 8 categories – my photo is in the deer category (image below-no watermark on the competition image). Voting is open now through Nov. 7th! Here is the link (you can only vote once):

Topaz Video AI

If you shoot video, Topaz Video AI will give you tack-sharp 4K at a smooth 60FPS.

Unlimited access to the world’s leading production-grade neural networks for video upscaling, deinterlacing, motion interpolation, and shake stabilization – all optimized for your local workstation.

Production-grade AI models for professional use cases

Topaz Video AI focuses solely on completing a few video enhancement tasks really well: deinterlacing, upscaling, and motion interpolation. We’ve taken five years to craft AI models robust enough for natural results on real-world footage.

Topaz Video AI will also take full advantage of your modern workstation, as we partner directly with hardware manufacturers to optimize processing times. (Many of them already use Topaz Video AI to benchmark AI inference.) Own the software and use it for as many projects as you like, right in your existing workflow.
