Gigapixel AI Upscaled
OrigiNal Upscale

Increase image resolution instead of just enlarging pixels.

Gigapixel AI helps you do a single thing very well: increase image resolution in a natural way. This is pretty hard to do. Most upscaling algorithms don’t know how to accurately fill in missing pixels, so you end up with blocky low-quality results.

To solve this problem, Gigapixel AI’s neural networks are continuously trained on a wide variety of sample images to understand how photorealistic detail looks. After learning from millions of images, it can now believably increase resolution on a wide variety of different subjects (portraits, wildlife, landscapes, architecture, etc) and image types (DSLR, web/compressed, CG). The results are often magical. Give it a try!

“Gigapixel AI is essentially the ‘ENHANCE!’ meme in real life. It works so well that one of Topaz Labs’ biggest challenges is convincing customers that the examples on its site are real.”

– Mark Wilson, Fast Company

"Using sophisticated neural networks, Gigapixel AI adds realistic details into an image to avoid making it look blurry as it's scaled up. The result is remarkable."

– Timothy B. Lee, Ars Technica

"Advances in AI have enabled better upscaling technology than previously available. The most notable tool is Gigapixel AI by Topaz Labs, software that upscales images with staggering results."

– Daniel Cooper, Engadget

"Topaz Labs’ Gigapixel upscaling doesn’t just look at neighboring pixels; it looks at whole sections of images at a time. That allows it to better re-create larger structures."

– James Vincent, The Verge

Used By

Improve image quality.

Gigapixel AI can make your image appear like it was captured with a much higher-quality camera. It’s been trained on enough images of different types of subjects (like portraits, landscapes, architecture, and more) to know what photo detail should look like. This allows you to increase your photo’s resolution and quality very naturally with minimal artifacts.

Pixel count isn’t the only thing that affects image quality. Normally, if you start out with a low-quality image, you’ll just end up with a bigger low-quality image if you upscale it. Gigapixel AI’s technology can instead create very believable and natural image detail that can often look amazing.

We’ve included the original versions of these sample images so you can try it for yourself. Enjoy!

“AI upscaling is here... and it’s terrifyingly good.... It learns what images should look like, and applies that knowledge to new stuff. It’s super effective.”

Add image detail that looks completely natural.

Gigapixel AI
Original

Normally enlarging an originally low-quality image will cause fuzzy square artifacts that visually degrade the image. Because Gigapixel AI was trained on an extensive dataset of mountain textures (among other subjects), it’s able to enlarge the image while simultaneously increasing the resolution. You almost can’t tell it was upscaled.

Enhance the texture of feathers

Gigapixel AI
Original

Feathers are often difficult to enhance correctly; they need to be both sharp and soft in different places to look natural. While this is difficult for normal enlargement methods, Gigapixel AI understands how to increase feather detail in a believable way.

Improve skin texture and sharpness

Gigapixel AI
Original

Portraits are another tricky subject - especially skin texture - because we are all very sensitive to “unnatural” skin or faces. When upscaling portraits, Gigapixel AI adds believable skin detail and texture for the kinds of results you see above.

Higher-resolution landscapes

Gigapixel AI
Original

Landscapes often look unnatural without fine detail. Gigapixel AI can add believable texture from existing detail and dramatically increase the image quality of your landscapes.

More detailed cityscapes

Gigapixel AI
Original

Man-made architecture often have more straight and clearly-defined lines than nature. Gigapixel’s special “Lines” AI  model was trained specifically on architecture and objects for better results.

Crystal-clear upscaling with no blocky artifacts

Gigapixel AI
Original

Normal upscaling techniques will create fuzzy and blocky artifacts that you can see above, but Gigapixel AI resolves edges sharply with few artifacts for much more natural results. (Pay special attention above to the fine details around the windows, trees, and mountain edges.)

Fix extreme pixellation in low-resolution images

While Gigapixel AI works best with input images that start with moderate or high quality, it can also work wonders on extremely low-quality and compressed images. In addition to increasing resolution, the “Very Compressed” model will also automatically remove JPEG compression artifacts, apply noise reduction, and sharpen the output in a natural way.

Sharpen AI has become crucial. Besides improving photos that were already sharp, it can fix photos with slow shutter speed or where it’s slightly out of focus! I honestly cannot imagine going back to editing without it.

Create better prints

Large prints display every small bit of detail in your photo, so it’s especially important that you start with a high-quality image. Gigapixel AI helps you achieve the extra image resolution to make your print really pop. In fact, Gigapixel AI works even better when starting out with an already high-quality image, so you can get especially good results here.

Increase DPI by increasing the image's real resolution

Gigapixel AI
Original

Printed photos will often magnify any softness or imperfections in your source image. Upscaling with Gigapixel AI first ensures the most detailed original image for best printing results.

Remove close-up compression artifacts

Gigapixel AI
Original

Compression artifacts will often look especially jarring in a printed photo. Gigapixel AI can automatically remove compression artifacts so you get a clean print every time.

Better zooming and cropping

Even if you use a high-quality camera, zooming into your image will reveal softness and imperfections. Using Gigapixel AI to increase your image’s resolution enables you to zoom and crop without losing quality.

Enhance different patterns in fabric, fur, and grass

Gigapixel AI
Original

Different kinds of texture have different characteristics. In the image above, notice the added detail and resolution on the fabric, grass, and animals.

Better perceived sharpness in small details

Gigapixel AI
Original

In the example above, notice the simultaneous smoothing in the sunglasses and added detail in the hair. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Gigapixel AI applies the right type of processing depending on the subject and texture of the image.

Natural texture that looks like it was never upscaled

Gigapixel AI
Original

The main statue looks far sharper in the photo above, but pay special attention to the people around the bottom. The resolution of the photo has increased even with no additional image information.

Other use cases: video, CG, and more

While Gigapixel AI was mostly trained for photorealistic still images (aside from the CG model), many creators have also achieved great results with computer graphics and video.

I usually shoot with a large aperture for creamy bokeh, but you can get an image slightly out of focus from time to time. Sharpen AI helps me recover all that detail, pushing the quality of my work to a whole new level.”

I shoot on helicopters and planes, so you can imagine the motion and vibration. I use Sharpen AI on every image I edit. I’ve never experienced such peace of mind knowing my images will come out looking better than before.
