Monday Window – November 4, 2019

Country Cafe Windows

An unassuming, plain photo of some windows. Nothing special, you say. Of course, you are right. Nothing special. I just happened to use this window photo for our Monday Window challenge because it was on the “top of the stack”.

I have been testing the latest offerings from ON1 and Topaz Studios. I used the photo below to check what ON1 Photo RAW 2020 and Topaz DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Gigapixel AI can do for me.

I used ON1 Photo RAW 2020 for basic exposure adjustments, cropping, rotating and perspective correction and for bringing out the shadows with its HDR Effect filter.

The Topaz tool names pretty well describe their function and what I used them for. Not in the order I listed them here, I do noise reduction first. The Gigapixel AI name may not be descriptive enough at first glance. This tool does an outstanding job of enlarging a small image, while enhancing the sharpness at the same time. You can see I used a small crop of the initial image for this exercise.
