Enlarge pictures and stop compromising quality with a tool that will help you increase your pictures' resolution without losing detail.
Gigapixel AI is a tool meant to help you get the clearest image quality after considerably enlarging the original. It uses machine learning technology to maintain accuracy and upscale your pictures' quality at the highest standards.
Gigapixel AI offers performant upscaling for all kinds of pictures. The goal is to enlarge a picture and preserve quality, which is a difficult thing to do. Indeed, most upscaling programs offer a slightly modified version of the original by adjusting the edge contrast and the picture's sharpness. Some of the most well-known graphic editors offer advanced techniques for picture refinement by using different, combined functionalities such as shake reduction, duplicating and editing blur traces, artifact suppression, and much more.
However, although we can't know for sure what kind of technology Gigapixel AI integrates, the tool is really performant compared with others in its league. It manages to increase pictures' quality even at high scale enlargements. The tool's developers announced their latest machine learning developments and some of the Gigapixel AI capabilities were associated with these new implementations.
Indeed, no matter the back-end functionalities and implementations, the tool does work and does make qualitative, highly enlarged photos. The new feature called Face Refinement, which uses machine learning and image recognition, manages to produce really good outcomes for portraits and face enlarged photographs.
The tool system is well-built and the GUI looks modern and minimalistic. Gigapixel AI is not a sophisticated and overly-complicated program. It has the essentials and performs its tasks smoothly and gracefully. It is easy, simple, and pleasant to use the program. You can open multiple pictures and select the ones you want to apply the modifications to. The commands in the right-side panel are simple and customizable: the scale options, the width and height adjustment, noise suppression, blur adjustments, etc.
To summarize, Gigapixel AI is a qualitative tool. It is well-built, performant, and does not have any noticeable issues at a normal, non-expert end-user look. The price seems a bit too high; however, if you find Gigapixel AI to be what you need after finishing the trial, go ahead and buy a license. After all, the price can be justified by the program's efficiency and capabilities.

Resize and enhance the clarity of your photos as you see fit, or use the software's presets, designed to help optimize the proportions of your images.
When printing photos, you have to be aware of a few things, or else the result will be less than satisfactory. For instance, you have to account for the page you're printing on, the contents you want to imprint, and the printer device itself. Failing to heed those elements usually results in you having to redo the process, wasting ink for carelessness.
More often than not, there are issues pertaining to how the photo fits on a page. It either comes out overly stretched, doesn't use the space properly — leaving you with white bars around it — or, in rarer cases, the result turns out as it should.
Using software to resize your photos for certain formats, whilst also enhancing their clarity, wouldn't be a bad call, and ON1 Resize has got you covered on that front. Batch image processing, printer presets, and an intuitive interface are the highlight features of this app.
Upon booting the software, you'll get the option to add the folder containing the photos you would like to resize. Thereafter, interacting with the Resize button will open up the editing menu of the chosen photo: you can crop it based on the printer format presets available in the app, and you can also make some adjustments to its overall look.
Concerning the presets, they are grouped based on the manufacturer and paper type. For instance, there are Canvas, Matte, and Resin Coated options for Canon, and they are also available for HP and Epson printers. Resizing for social media, as well as for e-mail, are some of the other available options.
Whether you're editing one or multiple photos, the workflow is very much alike. Batch processing is done by selecting the images, then clicking the Export button, which will open up a context menu. The menu will offer you the choices of sharpening, tiling, gallery wrapping, and even adding in film grain to the respective elements, each able to be customized per your requirements.
Resize is a solid app. The presets are helpful, and the sharpening feature can be of great aid when you want to enhance the clarity of your photos.
