How to Batch Edit using DeNoise AI as a Plugin to Adobe Lightroom Classic
How does batch processing work?
Batch processing is available on multiple images with the standalone applications and the Lightroom plugin. To batch process a set of images, simply select all of the images you wish to process when first opening an image (Or if you already have an image open in DeNoise AI, head to File/DeNoise AI menu and select Open Images). Once your images are loaded, you can make your edits as you please to whichever one you have selected.
Once you've edited your images, use the boxes to the left of each image's name to select which ones you would like to process, then hit the Begin Batch Process button to begin the batch edit process.
How to get DeNoise AI into Lightroom as a Plugin:
By default, the Topaz Labs software should go into Lightroom when it's installed on your computer. If you need help installing the software, go to this DeNoise AI Installation Guide
If to do not see DeNoise AI as a plugin, go to this Help Center article for assistance: Adobe Lightroom: Using Your Topaz Labs Plug-ins
How images are saved, Standalone Vs. Plugin Mode:
Images are saved differently depending on how the applications are being used. The Topaz Labs applications will function a little bit differently when used as a plugin.
In standalone mode, the Save button will ask you how you want to save the image because the software needs to know where to send the image on your computer. When you click on Save, there will be a popup showing different options to choose from.
When the Topaz Labs product is used as a plugin, the image will go back to Lightroom in the file format you pick at the time of invoking the software into Lightroom.
How to Select Images and Invoke DeNoise AI as a plugin for Batch Processing:
Once you have the software downloaded and installed, you can prepare the images you want to Batch Edit.
Import the images you want to Batch Edit into Lightroom:
Select images that you want to Batch edit. In the Grid view or the Filmstrip, do any of the following:
To select noncontiguous photos in the Grid view or the Filmstrip, click the first photo and then Ctrl-click (Windows) or Command-click (Mac OS) additional photos.
To select a photo and all photos between it and the active photo, Shift-click a photo.
To select all photos, choose Edit > Select All or press Ctrl+A (Windows) or Command+A (Mac OS).
To deselect all photos, choose Edit > Select None or press Ctrl+D (Windows) or Command+D (Mac OS)
Invoke the DeNoise AI plugin. In Lightroom, go to Photos in the menu bar >> Edit in >> Topaz DeNoise AI:
Pick how you want to edit the image in the Topaz Labs product. Lightroom gives you three options to pick from, TIFF, PSD, or JPEG. This will be how the image is saved when the image goes back into Lightroom after you are done editing it in the Topaz Labs product. PSD files cannot be used when using Topaz Labs products in Lightroom. Lightroom gives you three options to pick from, but you can only use TIFF or JPEG. This is because Adobe Lightroom set up those file type options and this cannot be changed. Please note, there are a lot more saving options when you use the software as a standalone application.
Each image has its own line and you can edit on each image by clicking on the line item. You can make your edits as you please to whichever one you have selected:
Once you've edited your images, use the boxes to the left of each image's name to select which ones you would like to process, then hit the Start Batch Processing button to begin the batch editing process:
DeNoise AI will process the images, close and send the edited images back into Lightroom. The image will go back to Lightroom the same file format that was picked in step four when it was invoked the plugin. In this example, copies are made and that edited images show up next to the original images in Lightroom. Depending on how you have made your settings, the new files could have the image title with the Suffix -edit (Ex. DSC_7876-Edit.jpg):
