Artificial Intelligence based image editors and enhancers have become really advanced in the past few years. Earlier we wrote about AI Image Enlarger app which is able to use machine learning to upscale your low-res images. And now there is another similar app that has caught our attention – Gigapixel AI from Topaz labs.
Gigapixel AI also uses machine learning and deep learning to get better photo quality for enhancing the details found in the original photo. The main difference between other similar software and Gigapixel AI is that the latter is entirely offline. While AI Image Enlarger and AKVIS Magnifier both carry out all the AI related tasks on the remote server, Gigapixel AI is entirely offline. Consequently the downloaded installer for the Gigapixel AI is nearly 1.6 GB in size.
Since Gigapixel AI runs on the local machine, your computer has to be really powerful. It is available for both Windows and macOS. In the case of the newer Macs (last five years), the hardware is definitely unquestionably very powerful. But if you are using a Windows PC, you have to ensure that your PC has a powerful GPU (Nvidia GTX 740 or above) with 2 GB of VRAM, a decent main processor (Intel Core i3 with 3 GHz clock frequency), and lots of RAM (16 GB DDR4). Without meeting these requirements, you might not see the desired results or it may take a very long time.
One benefit of using Gigapixel AI is that you do not have to depend on any cloud servers to do the task and you can do everything locally. In the case of internet problems, using a fully offline software turns out to have an advantage. Another thing is that using a locally installed software ensures the privacy of your photos as you do not have to upload them anywhere.
Topaz Gigapixel AI is not free but they offer a trial version so that you can experience the powerful AI that it comes with. If you have a powerful PC then you are going to enjoy the experience of using Gigapixel AI.
