Stability AI has announced a new image upscaler, an AI-based tool that can give your photos up to 4x bigger resolution. The company behind the somewhat controversial Stable Diffusion promises that the new tool can increase your images and not compromise their sharpness in the process. In fact,they claim that it could even improve it.
It’s time for another software battle! So far, we’ve compared AI photo sharpening and AI photo noise reduction. Next up, is AI photo upscaling, and we’re putting Adobe Photoshop, Topaz Gigapixel AI, Skylum Luminar Neo Upscale AI, and ON1 Resize AI 2023 up against each other. Upscaling images is important for print purposes, and it even slips in with pro-stock shooters who need to create images at specific resolutions. Having AI helps us by upscaling whilst preserving details and filling in the blanks sounds great, but which software does it best?
