I would like to know what would be the best way to work with LightRoom, Qimage and the Epson 3800 printer. What workflow will work best? I can integrate Qimage in LR and then print using LR and/or Qimage. Or I can export images that are ready for printing to a temp file and print from this file via Qimage. Perhaps there additional ways of using this set up?

Hi

The way I work is to export from Lightroom as a maximum quality Jpg or a Tif without  image sizing or sharpening , then print in QImage. You can crop in Lightroom  or QImage, but leave the interpolation to QI. I save the file in a sub-folder called 'Prints' along with the original image files, but if you save all print files to a sub-folder along with the QI job files you can back everything up to DVD at one go.

Hallo Brian: What I understand is that in your opinion it is better after post processing in LR not to use the printing capability in LR but to export to a print file and print using QI?
After printing using QI what would be the advantage of saving this print file? What does it mean: "leaving the interpolation to QI"?

I think he meant the "file for printing," not a print-to-file thing.  Just saving the file that is going to be printed in a different folder.

As to the interpolation, do not re-size in lightroom.  Only crop to the size/shape you want but do not change the ppi--even if it says something wierd like 286.7.  QI will handle that part.  BETTER than anything else can.
