Hello everyone,
I would like you to crop this image

something like this (maybe a little bit wider if background can be removed)
img_cropped.jpg
slightly sharpen it and enhance the lighting if possible. Thank you very much in advance!

OK I give up. I'm not even going to bother to post my version.

This is insane...where did all this detail come from??? Gary;s too!
Hi @ex_teacher. As one of the last steps I use Topaz's AI Photo yet could also be done with Topaz Gigapixel as they have some specific face recognition and enhancement technology that can works wonders. It can also mangle the image as well where it no longer looks human. Might be fun to post the mangled versions when they pop up. You can choose how much of the original image is incorporated if it appears overdone as well.
Hope that helps.

Christmas came early.

I just bought Topaz Photo AI. and essentially just let it do its thing. Far, far superior to anything else I had in my tool chest. This is what I did preciously but with the addition of this new Topaz product.

... Am I correct in assuming that Topaz Denoise AI and Topaz Gigapixel AI are also folded into this single product???

FWIW Here is a before and after Topaz Photo AI... and I really worked on the before.

Nice correction @ex_teacher

AI Photo has a lot of the technology of the other products yet simplifies the interface which also means you have less manual control. As an example Gigapixel control panel is shown below. It also has switches to put it in automatic mode as well.

However, if I could only get one tool from Topaz, it would be AI Photo.
