It does not work as a Photoshop plugin. It is stand-alone.

I think that it works great.

I installed it yesterday. I went through the customary install, and when I opened PS, it was there under Automate.

Just copy the Gigapixel plug-in files to the Photoshop plug-ins folder. Also works for Lightroom and Affinity Photo.

Simple answer No. DeNoise AI and Sharpen AI IMHO the best of their kind available. Gigapixel is primarily to enlarge low resolution so they can be printed in larger sizes. It depends on what you want to do.

My work flow is to open a file in Photoshop, I don't edit in Lightroom and send it immediately to DeNoise. Then start my processing in ACR

Open the image, then go to File, Automate, about half way down on the Drop Down Menu

Not on mine. Only includes Denoise and Sharpen but does not include gigapixel?

You know you are right, It was there before the last Photoshop update. I guess it is because Photoshop does almost the same thing.

Really? On my PC, Gigapixel is only in File/Automate, not in Filters: Only Topaz Sharpen and DeNoise are there - See screen captures.

File/Automate
File/Automate...

Filter

What is odd or seemingly inconsistent with Adobe, is LR has them all together. That is fine for my workflow as I run these filters from LR. So why did they feel compelled to separate them so widely apart? If I was purely PS I would disappointed.

Believe me I am. I think Topaz made a bad mistake on this one.
