Yesterday Topaz soft-released version 4.3.1 of Gigapixel AI, with the following features:

•Toggle in right panel to enable and disable Face Refinement

•Face Refinement will detect small faces (16x16px - 64x64px) and apply targeted improved upsampling

They are also aiming for 3X faster processing.

Attached is a screenshot of the new GUI with a 15-year old, 4MP image being treated with 4X magnification.

Highlights seem to be a bit challenging (they run they risk of appearing "dirty"), but at the same time the upsampled results are still faithful to the input, where the white is not pure white to begin with. Here is an example of teeth (note the tiny portion of the original 4MP image they appear in!):

Another person from the far end of the same image, with specular glasses. But look at the restoration of the tattoo!

Turns out there was an issue for some Mac users that is being addressed (on my Mac the update I got a few days ago is fine, so I got lucky). Watch for an update in a couple of days.
