Topaz Labs has been making some great tools for the last decade or so, and they have now combined some of their best products in one suite called Topaz Photo AI.
This new suite includes DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Gigapixel AI.
From Topaz Labs
AI is good at some things but bad at others. It can write sentences but can’t tell a story, and it can recommend songs but can’t compose music. But most importantly for us: AI is exceptionally good at improving image quality, but bad at knowing what to do with it.
We believe that stunning photography comes from artistic vision paired with world-class tools. AI will never replicate human creativity, so it’s still your job to provide the vision. But just like a sharper lens or...

But, Topaz is very good at bringing out bug fixes, which they seemed to do daily with the previous AI suite.

It is painfully slow for batch processing, even with exported 4MP Jpeg files it takes forever on my M1 Max. The results are however better IMO but I will not be using it if it is this slow.
