Topaz AI

Topaz Photo AI is a desktop software that uses artificial intelligence to add detail and megapixels. It performs actions like denoising, deblurring and upscaling, working especially well on images with dynamic scenes and moving subjects - making it ideal for wildlife photography. Topaz AI can even restore aged photos to their former glory.

Pixlr X

Pixlr X stands out in AI-powered photo editing because it allows users to craft transparent images and has a text-to-image AI generator. This generator is a game-changer, allowing users to easily transform text prompts into visual creations. Beyond these features, Pixlr X offers AI face swapping, collages, templates and animation tools. The software doesn't stop there; it also has atmospheric effects and over 100 filters and effects so you can make your image dreams a reality.


Skylum is the one-stop HDR photo editor for nature and architecture photography. By using their HDR software, users have the ability to unlock all the details and expanded dynamic range from a single image and elevate the quality of the photo by using said software and landscape tools. The tool Supercontrast allows you to adjust the highlights, midtones and shadows while Structure AI brings out depth and details that are both halo-free and noise-free. Plus, you have the option to merge 10 bracketed images using HDR Merge Extension.
