We’re thrilled to launch Photo AI 2, the most substantial upgrade since the initial release. Photo AI 2 expands the product’s scope with Lighting/Color adjustments and significantly improves existing features like raw noise removal, sharpening, Autopilot, and the Photoshop integration.
From the website (www.topazlabs.com) and the discussion on their community form, it appears that Topaz Studio may no longer supported. Topaz Labs is focusing on their new AI product. I've been a Topaz user for years and am disappointed with the product changes over the years. Topaz Labs has historically developed new and innovative products only to stop supporting them after a few years. Initially, they advertised free program upgrades for life and that's what made them different, then they required payment for upgrades. I use many of the creative effects within Topaz Studio 1 and 2 (and other add-ons) and am sorry another quality program from Topaz Labs may bite the dust. Just my 2 cents which won't buy a gumball anymore.
Pity about Studio 2 being no longer supported - I hope that it keeps working. Most of my old Topaz ones (going back to the early days of Adjust) still work at least as standalones (the plug-ins are more problematic).
I do like Photo AI for noise and sharpening although I do find the frequent updates somewhat annoying and the latest Lighting/Color adjustments really don't add anything if you are already doing those in PS, PSE or LR. Be interested to know what the long term plan is - at the moment it doesn't appear to be going in a direction I'm interested in.
