In this post, we take a look at some of the Gigapixel AI Test Samples leftover from my Gigapixel review. And because I want to challenge Gigapixel AI, I’ve only used photos taken with low-megapixel cameras. If you would like to try Gigapixel AI for yourself, you can download it free here.
Gigapixel AI Test Samples
Gigapixel AI Test Sample 1
This is Gigapixel AI near its best. In this case, you’re looking at a cropped photo taken with an old 6-megapixel Nikon D40 DSLR. Despite the photo’s low megapixel count – there’s still plenty of detail for Gigapixel to scale to 600%.
Gigapixel Test Sample 2
This photo was taken with my first digital camera, a twenty-year-old 3-Megapixel Sony point-and-shoot. In this case, Gigapixel AI struggles because the photo is a little blurred and thus, lacks sufficient detail to scale. Still, Gigapixel was able to enlarge this photo up to 2-times its normal size without any real penalty.
I took this photo whilst holidaying in Kenya with my brand-new el-cheapo Nikon AF-S 55-200mm F4.5-5.6 VR. Despite being a 6-megapixel photo, it’s nice and sharp and Gigapixel AI had no trouble upscaling it to 600%.
This photo is Gigapixel AI’s worst nightmare. A slightly blurred, low-resolution photo of a highly detailed subject. Nevertheless, Gigapixel AI was able to upscale this photo to 200% with good results.
So, how does Gigapixel AI handle black and white? Well, you don’t get more black and white than this fella. Despite a slight amount of image blur, Gigapixel AI did a great job scaling to 400% and had reasonable results at 600%.
Gigapixel AI is stunning at turning a small detailed image into an enormous one. So if you plan to feed Gigapixel your best, most sharp photos – you’ll be very happy with the results even if the megapixel count is small.
But as the detail fades, so does Gigapixel AI’s effectiveness. If your photo suffers from heavy noise, blur, or clumsy noise reduction; there may not be enough detail for Gigapixel AI to evaluate and scale.
Yet, this is not to say Gigapixel AI won’t work at all. But it does mean you might have to skip on the 600% mode and try a more modest upscale.
Overall, Gigapixel AI is the best more upscale I have used to date and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs to make large, detailed prints. If you would like to try Gigapixel AI for free, click this link.
