Topaz Labs Introduces Sharpen AI: Tack-Sharp Photos with Machine Learning

Topaz Labs provided us with a pre-release copy of Sharpen AI a while back so we could try it out. Loading a slightly blurry portrait into the software and seeing the results left me extremely impressed. In fact, Topaz is using the exact portrait I tested the software with as a sample image on Sharpen AI's product page.

Because of downsizing, the image above doesn't really showcase what Sharpen AI can do. Here's a closer look at the difference.

To get an even better idea of the difference, download the rull resolution original image here and then run it through the trial version of the software. Pay special attention to the subject's face/glasses and necklace pendant after adjusting Sharpen AI's parameters.

The great thing about machine learning algorithms is that they get better over time. I'm excited to see how far this type of technology will take us considering how well it works right now. [Sean]

From Topaz Labs:

We've all had the disappointing moment where your "perfect photo" is blurry, out-of-focus, or just not quite sharp enough. You viewed the image in your camera and thought you had captured the perfect moment, only to be disappointed once you see the photo on your computer screen. Now there's a solution.

Introducing Sharpen AI

Sharpen AI is the only sharpening tool to understand the difference between detail and noise by learning through millions of images. This means it will focus on sharpening the things you actually want to sharpen, rather than artifacts or noise. Use it to create beautifully sharp images from even handheld, low-light, and fast-moving photos - try Sharpen AI today!

Get Sharpen AI today for the special introductory price of $59.99, originally $79.99, available until March 15th.

Sharpens and Defines

Most commercial sharpening tools will sharpen everything in your image - including noise. Sharpen AI only sharpens the things you want and brings out the detail and definition in your shot. It only sharpens the good stuff.


When shooting a moving object or in a low-light scenario, motion blur is a common problem. Sharpen AI uses machine learning to stabilize motion blur in your images for a crisp clear result.

Improves Focus

Theoretically, there is no way to recover lens blur in your photos. Sharpen AI remembers patterns in your image and can rescue a blur within ten pixels. When your image is just slightly out of focus, Sharpen AI provides the solution.

How does this compare to other products?

Unlike other sharpening products, like Photoshop Shake Reduction, Sharpen AI is the first product to use machine learning to fill in the details that other sharpening tools leave out. The AI technology delivers a crisp, clear image that is full of detail.
