Time to eat my words...

John 'twosheds' McDonald wrote:AI Gigapixel did a better job than CS6. In my case the number of occassions when I might need such image enlargments make it difficult to justify the $99.99 expenditure when Photoshop can achieve an acceptable, though less good, result. Just my twopennyworth.

I had received a photograph from one of my Sicilian friends. The photo was sent via a smartphone and had original dimensions of 1,600 x 900 pixels and the file size was 170KB. By the time I had cropped out the unnecessary background the image size was down to 504 x 280 and 108KB. I wanted a larger image so I downloaded the trial of AI Gigapixel and by way of a trial I resized the image to 13,000 x 7000 giving a filesize of 263MB.

Trust me when I tell you that the result is truly amazing.

It was a no brainer to purchase the software, especially taking into account the 20% discount that Topaz was offering plus the additional 15% discount from Plugs 'n' Pixels.

Total outlay USD67.99 - the best money that I have spent in quite a while.

John, How long did it take to process that huge image -- months, weeks, days? Just kidding. I received an update today when I opened AI Gigapixel. I'm processing some pictures taken with a flip phone from years ago. As you say, the results are truly amazing.

Just a FYI Robert.

I didn't time it but think two to three or so mins was probably about right.

I remain truly awed about just how good an image was produced after that gigantic increase in size.
