•Crop your images using the new Crop Tool


•Faster previewing and saving of images
•File list is now collapsible, and you can now add images directly from the file list
•Tutorials have been moved to the drop area on the starting screen


•Multiple crashes have been fixed
•Auto-detect settings should proc correctly when images are added / selected
•Images should check / uncheck correctly in the file list
•Tutorial panel should no longer show up when all opened images are unselected
•When starting a trial, program should no longer incorrectly display that you have 0 days left on the trial
•Login panel should no longer spin indefinitely if there’s a connection issue
•“Original” label should now show correctly in single image view mode

Known Issues

•When launched as a Photoshop plugin, assigning a color profile is sometimes required before the plugin will launch
•Color shifting can be observed with certain images, particularly non-photographic images. Topaz is currently working on a new AI model that fixes this.
•GPU image quality has artifacts not present when processing with just OpenVINO or CPU. Topaz currently working on this and will have a fix out soon.
•When processing has been cancelled and auto-update preview is turned off, a smaller version of the previewed image will show up in the preview panel.
•When in single image view mode and auto-update preview is turned off, the processed image will not show back up when mousing down on the previewed image
•“Previewing…” overlay will flash on screen when auto-update preview is on and preview has already been processed
