Topaz Adjust AI

Without Topaz Adjust AI and DeNoise AI

Once upon a time, about eight and half years ago, I didn’t shoot in RAW; I only saved my shots in jpg format. Alas, those photos are far more difficult to process in terms of getting them to look like what the scene originally looked like. The above, 11-photo photomerge is one such example. In Photoshop I wasn’t able to get the final panorama to look like the brilliance of the sunset from that one evening in New York back in 2012. Because I shot in jpg, the details were muddy and not recoverable (in Photoshop at least).

I downloaded Topaz Labs’ Adjust AI to see if it could do better. Adjust AI comes with a bunch of filters, none of which I liked. However, the adjustments for highlights, colors, shadows, etc. are far more powerful and customizable in manual mode than what you see in Photoshop, and I was able to bring the scene back to something more closely resembling what I saw with my naked eye that evening. The results are below.

Citi Field

7-photo photomerge of Citi Field, home of New York Mets (2012)

Derek Jeter was going into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame today

But with Covid, the induction ceremony has been moved to next year.

Today’s photo comes from his 247th home run back in 2012. He hit this in the first inning as the leadoff batter.

It’s beginning to look a lot like baseball…

Most teams have their first spring training games today (including the Mets).

I took today’s photo back in 2012 at Citi Field in New York. I have no idea if the giant Topps cards continue to adorn the concourse, but I thought it was about the coolest thing I had ever seen.

Here is a photo of the Mets starting lineup on that day in baseball cards.

250+ wins and 3,000+ Ks will be the final tally for CC when the 2019 season ends this weekend. Not bad. Will he make the Hall of Fame?
