    Topaz DeNoise AI- Magenta image

    Hi All,
    I just downloaded a free trial of DeNoise. I have a MacBook Pro and Affinity for post processing so, I need to use DeNoise as a stand-alone program.

    When I imported the RAW image into DeNoise, the program gave me a warning that the colors might be changed. I saved the sharpened image as a DNG file, which looked ok, and then loaded it into Affinity. The entire image went magenta. It was so magenta, that it couldn't be recovered, at least in Affinity it can't. Kind of makes sense that the program would use some magenta since there was a lot of green in the image. However, it shouldn't look like the image was put in the wash with a red sock. I reloaded the DNG back in to DeNoise, and the preview image was magenta. I guess, with that, I ruled out Affinity as the villain in this story.

    Anybody have any clue, tip, wild-ass guess or anything that might help me resolve this.
    My initial search didn't give me an answer, but I am about to do some more looking to see if I can locate the same issue.

    Thanks

    Did you try other images with the same results?

    No, but I can give it a go.

    I'm not sure why you used a RAW file. Supported file formats are jpeg, tiff and png. I'm surprised that you could actually use a RAW file in the first place.

    EDIT: I tried to open a DNG file and found that the program actually opens the embedded jpeg, so the DNG doesn't open and can't be processed

    I just confirmed that Topaz DeNoise AI (and in fact none of the Topaz software) supports RAW files. This would make Topaz software a deal breaker to me.

    From Topaz's web site:
    DeNoise AI supports all major RBG color profiles. It does not support CMYK at this time.
    Some RAW files can be used in the software, such as DNG (digital negative), and camera-specific files, such as NEF, ARW, and ORF files. However, we use third-party libraries in our software to display RAW images. Due to this, there can be some RAW files from certain camera types where you might see some conflicts.

    If you see something odd in the image color, desaturation, or overall display of the RAW files, we suggest converting the images to TIFF. Similar to RAW files, TIFF files contain plenty of data for editing and are compatible across a broad range of programs where RAW files may have conflicts.

    I don't know where you found that, Fred, although I'm not saying you're wrong. They must be releasing conflicting information. This is what I found:

    https://support.topazlabs.com/hc/en-...20Topaz%20Labs.

    Does Topaz Labs work with RAW files?
    No, RAW files cannot be directly opened in Topaz Labs. If working with a raw image, you'll need to covert the raw file with an editor like Adobe Camera Raw first. You can then bring the raw file into Photoshop via ACR and work with the image that way in Topaz Labs.

    Another option is in Lightroom, you can open the file as a smart object in Photoshop and then bring the image into Topaz Labs.
    @BackdoorArts - Jake, how do you access Topaz to make adjustments, and what types of files have you used? Do you always access Topaz via Photoshop or Lightroom?

    Always from Photoshop for me, though you can do it it from Lightroom and save it back as a Tiff (which only makes sense to me if you do not use Photoshop).

    This objection doesn't make much sense because you cannot save edited Raw files. Photoshop has Camera Raw as an interface to convert the RAW file to something usable and saveable. Lightroom does the same when invoking an outside editor of any kind (your choice in preferences). If you cannot invoke the Topaz product from something like Affinity (note: I've confirmed that they work together) you can open the file and save it as a TIFF, open it in Topaz, save, and reopen in the editor of choice.
