AI Photo Restore is the best and most modern photo restoration software available as it uses the latest machine learning technology. The technology behind the app is a state-of-the-art deep neural network for photo restoration that was presented in 2020 by Microsoft Research in their paper Bringing Old Photos Back to Life.
Old digitalized photos often suffer from degradation effects such as noise, blurriness, film grain, sepia effect or color fading. AI Photo Restore is a photo restoration software that is able to correct the degradation of old photos.
The processing of the photos uses a complex deep neural network. This is why the processing is very computing and memory intensive. The processing using the computer's graphics card (GPU) is usually much faster than using the CPU. However, your GPU must support DirectX 12 and should have a lot of memory in order to support higher processing resolutions. The following shows the estimated memory requirements per quality setting:
You can test the app for free by installing a trial version through the Windows Store. In the trial version, the output photos will be watermarked. In order to disable the watermarks, you have to purchase the app.
