  • We fixed a problem that caused Studio to show the wrong CFBundleIdentifier value on macOS
  • We fixed a problem that caused the Topaz file to show "QTMake" for the version number in the Get Info panel in macOS. The actual application version is now correctly listed.
  Notice: User Preset backup and sync was been disabled in Studio 1.13. We are improving the overall system, and this change was necessary to make that happen. We will notify all users when User Preset sync has returned. When we re-enable the feature, all new user presets that have been created will be correctly synced.

  • A.I. Clear will now always show up as owned when it has been purchased
  • Fixed application scaling issues. Application is now useable when resized to fit almost any size monitor with most zoom levels (very small screens < 10" with high zoom levels > 350% will still have issues)
  • Fixed Focal Blur adjustment overlay size not matching the preview blur
