If you’ve visited Lenscraft over the past month you may have noticed some changes to page layouts. I decided that it’s time to refresh some of the pages as they haven’t changed for quite a few years. I’ve also used this as an opportunity to make the pages quicker to load as well as easier to read, through improved spacing and larger, hopefully clearer text.
Another update is that my image gallery now uses a feed from my Instagram account. This ensures that new images are added most weeks.
I’ll be making further improvements to the site over coming months.
On1 Resize AI 2022 Launched
As some readers will know, I’m a huge fan of Topaz Gigapixel for photo enlargements, as I explain in this article. But before Gigapixel, I used Genuine Fractals software to make enlargement. When this first launched it was an amazing product and way ahead of the competition.
Later Genuine Fractals was taken over by On1 and became On1 Resize. Then unfortunately it fell behind and couldn’t really compete with Gigapixel. Now On1 has launched Resize AI which is their second AI product. Their other AI product is No Noise AI which I recently reviewed against Topaz DeNoise in this video.
So far, I’ve only performed limited tests with Resize AI, but I’ve found I can take small 1,500-pixel images and enlarge them to 5,000 pixels. I know the word amazing is used far too often today but, in this case, it’s the best way to describe the results I’ve seen. I’m planning to do a more detailed investigation over the next month and hopefully make a direct comparison with Topaz Gigapixel.
If you already own On1 Resize 2022 (not AI), this a free upgrade to the AI version of the software. I also understand that if you own On1 Photo RAW 2022 the new software will be integrated to that in a future update. This is an excellent policy of delivering real value for money to existing users.
New On1 Software Discount Code
If you try the software and decide to purchase, I have a new discount code which you can use.
This code replaces my earlier LENSCRAFT code and can be used with all On1 products.
