Topaz released the new Gigapixel AI v5.2 update and added limited time 20% discount (Click here). Don’t forget you can also use the free trial if you want to test the results.

Major New Features:

  • New AI Model – “Compressed”. You can find it under the “Image Type” option in the right panel. This image type works best with photos that have a lot of artifacts, old family photos, and images downloaded from the internet
  • Whole New Look – Entire program has been given a UI overhaul to make it look more pleasing, as well as more consistent.
  • Crop your images using the new Crop Tool


  • Faster previewing and saving of images
  • File list is now collapsible, and you can now add images directly from the file list
  • Tutorials have been moved to the drop area on the starting screen

You can now preorder the new Capture One 21 with a 20% discount using this code!

You can now preorder the new Capture One 21 on this page (Click here) with a 20% discount. It’s a bit tricky to preorder it so here I explain how to do it for C20 owners:

  1. Login to Capture One
  2. Go to the upgrade page and enter your license number
  3. Upgrade to C21 and get the 20% discount using the checkout code “PREORDER2020

If you do own C12 or older version you first have to purchase C20 (with no discount code). And they will than get C21 update for free.

New features and release time:

Capture One has decided to not disclose any info about the new features (I know this is odd). So if you wonder why the heck you should pay for a new version without knowing what you get…I can only give you one reason: The 20% discount that you get now and you will NOT get the day of the official launch!

The release date has not been announced but as usual expect the release to be between mid November and mid December.
