Topaz Labs released Sharpen AI 2.1.0. According to their e-mail, . . .
Update for free to the latest version of Sharpen AI.
We've just released a major update to Sharpen AI to include a new auto-detect masking tool to generate base masks of your image subjects and a new "auto-detect mode" capability, allowing Sharpen AI to select the best processing mode for your image (from the Focus, Stabilize, and Sharpen modes).
Here's my test - taken as the cannon fired so I and the camera jumped! It did auto select stabilize and did a reasonable job with the other settings. Not sure it's a much better than the earlier version - will have to compare.

Thank you Sepiana for the reminder. I have had Topaz sharpen AI from about the first release. I have several types of sharpening and focusing tools in my collection but have found that Topaz Sharpen AI is the best tool I have. It has helped save several shots that have suffered from motion blur and focusing errors. It can also help overcome diffraction-limiting softness. I also find it useful for general sharpening, especially after cropping macro shots.
I just watched this video by Jim Nix which covers the masking option. I thought it was very good. For some reason when I tried to link to it using Safari I got an error message but using Chrome the link worked fine.

I had the opportunity to try this masking/people identification feature today on a photo that my husband took yesterday. We had set the camera on auto and hoped he would be able to get some good pictures of our grandson's graduation. Guests were restricted so I did not attend.
