What’s the difference between Topaz Sharpen AI and Denoise AI

Both Topaz Sharpen AI and Denoise AI have a lot in common. Both are specialized standalone photo editors and both can also work as plug-ins for Lightroom and Photoshop.

Furthermore, each replaces traditional processing methods with machine-learned artificial intelligence for superior results. Finally, both sell for US$79.99 and you can pick up both bundled together alongside with Gigapixel AI for US$199. Read Gigapixel AI Review

What is Topaz Denoise AI

Topaz Denoise AI is a specialist high-ISO noise reduction tool. Or specifically, it’s the best noise reduction tool I have used yet.

Traditional noise reduction works by smudging the noise away. Unfortunately, these methods also smudge away detail. But thanks to artificial intelligence, Denoise AI can tell the difference between noise and detail. Therefore, Denoise AI eliminates noise whilst enhancing detail.

As a result, a photo processed in Denoise AI can look more detailed than the original (see sample below). Read Topaz Denoise AI Review

What is Topaz Sharpen AI

Topaz Sharpen AI is a spectacular product. At its most basic, it will simply make your photo appear sharper which is hardly a novelty these days.

But what is truly stunning is how Sharpen AI can correct out-of-focus and motion-blurred images. If you try to sharpen a blurred photo using traditional sharpening – you’ll simply sharpen blurred pixels.

But Sharpen AI analysizes your photo and restores its detail to its proper place. In other words, it corrects the blur rather than polishes it. Read Sharpen AI Review.

Sharpen AI or Denoise AI?

As you can see, Sharpen AI and Denoise AI are designed to solve two different problems. So, should you buy Sharpen AI or Denoise AI?

Sharpen AI

Compared to Denoise AI, Sharpen AI is more useful, more often, to more people. After all, in many cases, photo noise can be avoided altogether. On the other hand, pro-grade sharpening will likely improve any photo you’ve ever taken.

Furthermore, Sharpen AI’s ability to restore detail lost to poor focus and motion blur feels miraculous at times, thus giving your photos an opportunity to avoid the Recycle Bin.

Denoise AI

But for some of you, Denoise AI is a clear winner. For instance, you may use a camera with a smaller noisier sensor. Or perhaps you may take photos in poorly-lit spaces and capture fast action with super-fast light-starved shutter speeds.

If this sounds familiar to you, then you should definitely try Denoise AI. As I write this, Denoise AI is easily the best noise reduction tool I have used.

But you should note that Denoise AI is far less effective on photos that have already suffered from traditional noise reduction since most of the detail has been stripped. This was particularly apparent when I tested Denoise AI on photos taken with Smartphones.

Therefore, make sure you are able to turn off your camera’s own inbuilt noise reduction before considering Denoise AI a solution.

Conclusion

Both Sharpen AI and Denoise AI are terrific products with different use cases. For me, Sharpen AI is more useful more often since I tend to shoot at lower less-noisy ISOs.

But if your camera has a smaller noisier sensor or you depend on high ISO values to take photos in low light or capture fast action, Denoise AI might be the game-changer you are looking for.

Best of all, you can test Sharpen AI and Denoise AI using your own photos for free. No credit card is required and the trial is unlimited. However, your exported results will be watermarked until you pay up. For more info on either product, check out my hands-on Denoise AI and Sharpen AI Samples and Reviews.
