However, a very popular Windows version soon followed. PMView Pro is still available for both OS/2 & Windows systems (and, yes, OS/2 is still alive :-)

Image masking doesn’t have to be complicated.
Compared to Photoshop, Mask AI doesn’t need tedious brushwork to get a high-quality mask. And there’s no need to learn complicated icons and tools. With Mask AI you only need to roughly outline your subject in blue, one click fills what you want to cut, one click fills what you want to keep, and press “Compute Mask”. It’s really that simple.

TopazLabs Sharpen AI

Create tack-sharp images
Sharpen AI is sharpening software that can tell difference between real detail and noise.

Create tack-sharp images
True sharpness is the lack of softness and blur. Traditional sharpening tools try to simulate this by just making edges brighter, but they don’t correct the actual source of the problem. Sharpen AI works differently, by targeting & reversing three specific types of blur, to create much more natural results:

1. Motion
The Motion model was trained to reduce motion blur caused by a shaky camera or moving subject. Often, you won’t even think there’s motion blur in your image... until you see the before/after from this model.

2. Focus
The Focus model reduces lens blur caused by missed focus. This is the toughest-use case, and won’t recover 100% of your photos. When it works, though, it works really well, and can completely recover a throwaway image.

3. Softness
The Softness model works best to give already-good images that extra “pop”, while making sure it stays natural. Use instead of traditional sharpening on finely detailed features, like eyes, feathers, leaves, and stars.

TopazLabs Studio2

The future of creative photo editing
Edit your images beautifully, with powerful filters & frictionless masking, in a fine-tuned non-destructive layer workflow.

A workflow devoted entirely to creative photo post-processing
Topaz Studio 2 has only one purpose: creative photo editing. This starts after you select your image, and ends when you export your finished work. It’s designed specifically around the artisanal post-processing workflow of carefully crafting a single image to your vision.

1. Cutting edge filters
Most image editor tools are the same: your Exposure in one editor is the same Exposure in another. In Studio, TopazLabs thought about what common adjustments would look like if they were designed today, and updated them to their most modern & useful forms.

2. Powerful selection & masking
Very rarely do you want to apply the same effect to all parts of your image the same. Studio considers masking & selective adjustments to be a core task, and features several innovations that make selective editing substantially easier & faster for you.

3. Fully non-destructive layers
Mix & match filters & effects, with different blending modes & opacity. Everything that you do in Studio can be edited & adjusted after the fact, with a fully non-destructive layer workflow.
