Topaz DeNoise version 3.0.1 was released today. A 15% discount is available.

Here is an example of a 1985 35mm slide scanned back in 2003 and tucked away. DeNoise both removed the grain and sharpened details.

Thanks for the update. The Topaz customer support person I was emailing with last week told me they were about to launch something new and exciting (especially for people like me who have systems that couldn't handle the workload of their software).

I have read that this new version of Denoise will be followed by new versions of Sharpen and Gigapixel. All will use the new AI engine which runs far more quickly. This is very good news. However I think it will be some time before they have all settled down to being stable reliable versions given the size of change required.

Exactly. I don't plan to be an early adopter but I will follow those who are with much interest.
