"Thanks Bernard.  As long as Giga has good results, speed is unimportant to me--I'll mainly use it in batch mode while doing other things.  Also, Giga can do 1500% in two passes--first 600%, and second 250%, so there's no upper…"

A.I. Gigapixel--an Innovative Upscaling Program

Many of us have the need to upscale the resolution of SA images, eg from 1000x1000 to 6000x6000 pixels.  But that task is very demanding, since the second upscaled image will have 36 times as many pixels as the lower-resolution image.  How can sharpness etc be preserved?Before now, my go-to program for this kind of task was Photozoom Pro 7, which worked as well as anything else I'd tried.  All such programs work by interpolating new pixels in between the initial ones.  However, this new program, A.I. Gigapixel, works on a completely different principle.  It uses an artificial intelligence neural net that has been trained over many thousands of previous pictures, so that it knows, just from a few initial pixels, which actual object configuration was most probably represented by them.  Then, in the final image, it replaces those few pixels with a high resolution image of the object configuration it has guessed.    Quite honestly, I'm amazed at how well this works on typical images--I…See More
