Use the Resize Mode to upscale your image.


There are three modes to select from:

  • SCALE - upscale your image by a multiplier of up to 6x
  • WIDTH - upscale your image by inputting a custom width size
  • HEIGHT -upscale your image by inputting a custom height size

Both the WIDTH & HEIGHT options allow you to input a measurement size (pixels, inches, or centimeters) and pixels per inch (PPI). Once you have set your size, your changes are viewable in the File List.


To change Pixels per Unit to your image:

  1. Go to Resize Mode > Select Width or Height
  2. Click on drop down arrow to change the unit of measurement from “PX” (pixels) to “IN” (inches) or “CM” (centimeters)
  3. The Pixels per Unit will appear.
  4. Type in your Pixels per Unit first.
  5. Then go back and type your desired Output Width/Height.

To Input a Custom Scale Multiplier:

1. Resize Mode > Select Scale

2. Click "Custom"

3. Type your multiplier in the "Custom scale" box and press Enter


AI Model

AI Models are the program filters Topaz Labs has created to determine how to adjust or enhance your images, graphics, digital scans, or artwork.

The Standard AI Model is the overall recommended model to use across a variety of images. This model has been trained to see a variety of files but works best for photos, graphics, and generated images.

Standard v2, first introduced in version 7.0.0, is the default version in 7.1.0


Standard v2 reduces blurry patches that occurred in Standard v1.


Legacy Models

Gigapixel's Generation 1 AI Models pulled from previous generations are considered Legacy Models.

To find Legacy Models in the AI Models section:

Select the three dots next to the Auto Symbol > Show Legacy Models


Compare Tool

Utilize the Compare Tool to review different AI models at a glance.

Select the Compare button below the Ai Model names.

A small pop up panel prompts you to select up to four different AI models to compare. You do not need to select four models every time. 2 or 3 models still make Comparison View accessible. Click Compare.

A quad view of four windows shows the AI models selected. A blue outline highlights the active quadrant. Once you've made settings, click Apply Model.


You can also utilize the Capture feature and View Original icons while in the Compare Tool panel.



Auto mode decides and suggests settings to enhance your photo by selecting an AI Model and/or Setting enhancements for you.

To select this mode, click on the thunderbolt symbol.

Auto Mode’s settings appear highlighted in a lime green color shown in the Filters panel and in the file list next to each image.


The Lime green dots indicate which setting has Auto applied.

Turn off AUTO by clicking on the Thunderbolt symbol or clicking anywhere on the AI Model or Settings to change the enhancement values. The thunderbolt appears gray when turned off.


To customize your settings, select the dropdown arrow.

  • Denoise - slightly suppresses noise
  • Sharpens - minimizes motion or lens blur
  • Fix Compression - reduces compression artifacts to improve details. This setting is enabled only when “Standard” and “High Fidelity” models are used. (Note: Fix Compression values are not visible in the list)

These options have a sliding degree of intensity. You can input a custom value from a scale of 1 to 100.

Additional Settings

Apply color bleed reduction or face recovery to your images as an additional step.

How to Use Face Recovery

How to Use Face Recovery

  • Face Recovery - detects and recover human faces. It works best on blurry, low resolution, or artifacted faces, but may remove detail from high-quality faces.
  • Face Selection - detects high and low confidence faces to enhance
  • Face Recovery Strength - drag the slider to control how sharp the recovered faces are relative to the background.
  • Gamma Correction - processes the image in a higher gamma color space. For images with highly saturated colors, this can enhance AI outputs with more details and less color bleed.
