ON1, has announced a new application, ON1 Resize AI. The new app, coming this April, is the successor to ON1 Resize, which was previously known as Genuine Fractals. ON1 Resize AI is 'the next generation' of photo enlargement software and promises to deliver photographers even better enlargement results using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technology.
ON1 Resize AI includes 'super-resolution' technology that allows customers to enlarge their photos while maintaining quality, detail and sharpness. 'It's simply amazing. We've been working on this project for quite a while, and everyone will be ﬂat out amazed at how big they can make their photos. I'm still in awe of the results I can get using ON1 Resize AI,' says Dan Harlacher, VP of Product.Image courtesy of ON1
Existing methods of photo enlargement, or interpolation, create new pixels by copying surrounding pixels. While interpolation technology has come a long way, the results can still be softer and fuzzier and include more noise. ON1 Resize AI instead relies on machine learning to analyze different details in real photos, such as bark, fur, grass, leaves, rocks, skin, concrete, brick, and fabric, to deliver improved upscaling results. Of course, we will need to see how the new application works in practice to know if ON1 has delivered, but it sounds promising.
Per ON1, Resize AI's key features are as follows:Image courtesy of ON1
ON1 Resize AI is available now to preorder as an individual plugin and standalone application. ON1 Resize AI will be part of the ON1 Professional Plugin Bundle, which includes five of ON1's professional plugins that work with software like Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and Capture One. The bundle will retail for $149.99. The standalone application is $99.99. ON1 Resize AI will also be available inside ON1 Photo RAW 2022 following a future update. ON1 expects Resize AI to release in April, although an exact date has not yet been determined. Further, owners of ON1 Resize 2022 will receive ON1 Resize AI for free.
