ML Super Resolution

The ML Super Resolution tool harnesses the power and intelligence of machine learning to upscale photos while preserving and even recreating visually important details. ML Super Resolution algorithm is trained to analyze the patterns and textures in a photo instead of interpolating the values of pixels mathematically as done by the regular scaling algorithms.


To upscale a photo using ML Super Resolution:

  1. Open the photo you'd like to upscale.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Tap ML Super Resolution at the top of the screen.
    • On iPhone, tap More and choose Super Resolution in the menu that appears.
    • Press Command ⌘ + U on your keyboard.

Tip: You can tap in the toolbar to compare the before and after results.

ML Super Resolution can upscale photos 1,5x, 2x, or 3x. The algorithm automatically chooses the most appropriate level of scaling depending on the original image size, its bit depth, and memory available on the device. For already large photos that don't need to be upscaled, Pixelmator Photo will clear up different artifacts and camera noise to improve the photo quality.
