Clip Studio Paint Adds New AI Smart Smoothing Feature. AI Library Created with ailia SDK Developed by ax Inc. & Axcell Corporation

Celsys is pleased to announce the release of Clip Studio Paint Ver. 1.9.1, featuring the new Smart Smoothing feature using AI (deep learning) technology. This feature converts images to reduce jaggies and noise caused by changing the resolution of images or resizing images.

Current users of Clip Studio Paint can update to the latest version of the software for free. The feature will be available on DEBUT, PRO, and EX versions on Windows, macOS, and iPad versions as a technology preview* feature. 

Smart Smoothing uses AI deep learning technology to reduce jaggies and noise caused by changing the resolution of images or resizing images. It can be used to clean up low-resolution images created as web content so that they can be printed, or to smoothen lines that have been blurred by transformation (increased size).
The Smart Smoothing feature uses an AI module developed by Celsys, as well as the deep learning framework “ailia SDK” developed and distributed by ax Inc. and Axcell Corporation. Smart Smoothing joins the existing AI features  “Colorize,” “Remove tones,” and “Pose Scanner.” Although these AI features previously introduced to Clip Studio Paint have required an Internet connection, the new Smart Smoothing feature will work without an Internet connection.

Celsys has supported creators through technology since its foundation, and will continue to develop AI tools as a means of supporting creators.
