Prior to the presentation we had a lively discussion about Gigapixel AI, the topic of our last workshop. Ben tossed us a link with a video comparing photo enlargement with PS and Gigapixel.

Waterfalls, flying tables, and AI. Oh my!

Nov. 17 was our workshop night. Val talked about his now famous flying table. The image above is the “Image of the Year” from the 2019-2020 season.

Jim gave a great review of the latest Topaz Gigapixel AI. His efforts mirrored work shown here. Jim kindly made his presentation available to us:

During the premeeting chin-wag, Ben pointed out a great resource for locating waterfalls in Ontario. Sadly Newmarket is in a waterfall dead zone. Road trip!
