When I originally edited this 360-degree photo of the Praça Do Comércio, in Lisbon, Portugal, I remember trying to get more contrast into the image, but being put off by how it impacted the noise. This was particularly true near the top and bottom edges of the photo where the MadVenture 360 distorts the pixels. I stumbled on the image a few days ago and decided to take a few moments to just pass the original color version through Topaz DeNoise AI to see what the result would be. Compare the result above, which allowed greater contrast, and the result from 2017 below. I remain very impressed by what Topaz is doing with their AI image software.
