Hi guys,

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help. I haven't worked out what is causing the issue. However, I have learned enough about the wrapping etc, to get the job done without a need for photoshop, and for that, many thanks indeed.

Sorry it took a while to respond. I work 4 days a week and print just the one!

All the best

Hi Fred,

Sorry for late reply...been on hols!  Cheesy

I took the image that you sent back of the couple embracing at their wedding and tried again in a different file location and got the same error with Qimage. Not sure what is going on. Any ideas?

Thanks Terry for the help with borders too! I will check that out and have a go when I can get this image working!

All the best

Ross

Hi guys,

Thanks for getting back to me. I will send the file to you Fred...thanks for that.

I agree with you about the sizing thing and I usually do, but I needed to add a two inch black border round the file for when the canvas is wrapped on the frame. Unless I have missed something, Qimage doesn't do this.

Again, thanks for your responses. Its a pleasure to know that people out there take time to support others. I look forward to your thoughts on the issue I am facing.

Regards

Rossus

Hey,

I am trying to print a JPG having adjusted it in photoshop. Originally it was sent to me as 46.764x22.389 inches at 72 PPI. When I then increase the PPI to 300 and change the file size to 46x22 and save, QImage will not create a thumbnail and gives the 'Image read Error' in red. It works fine with the original file, and all I am doing is saving as a JPG after changing in photoshop.

I have rebuilt and refreshed thumbs, and also closed and opened Qimage, and nothing works.

Just to add to it (incase it helps), I am running QImage on XP within Virtual Box on a Mac, and QImage is version 2010.209 professional.

Can anyone suggest anything I am doing wrong or missing?

Many thanks in advance

All,

Working like a dream thanks. So simple to change the paper size and have multiple on one....embarrassing that I didn't think of it, but then I guess that's learning for you!

Thanks so much to all of you for your input. Really helped and has saved me a load of cost.

Cheers Grin

OK....so I am a QImage user...just.....Getting to grips with the massive amount of functionality.

So here is the thing. I am printing on a 13 inch roll, and wanting to do 10 at a time without auto cutting (paper too thick). Images are 11 by 15.5 and I want a 1 inch margin round each. Hence I am using a 13 inch roll, and setting the paper size to be 13 by 18. All good. Printer prints and image fits perfectly into the given sized paper......

However, despite what I can work out, the printer seems to put at least 4 inches of white paper between the end of one print and the start of the next. All I want is an inch, to allow me to cut and trim each of the images to the exact size. Wasting 4 inches is just.....wasteful. Its around a quarter extra on each image which is financially crazy too, regardless of environmental concerns.

Hopefully this makes more sense now? Really appreciate any thoughts. I am hopeful that there is a setting in QImage that I am missing and its not just a printer default that can't be changed.

Thanks for input so far!

Hey...new here. Hope this is the right forum

Ihave an Epson 9600 and am trying to minimise the amount of paper it wastes between prints. I have been told that I can fool it into thinking that it is usign sheet paper, but I don't know how to do this. Does anyone out there know or have an idea?  - Or any other smart ideas.

No suggestions about using pause button or raising the paper lever please as I need to do 100 prints and I DON'T want to sit next to the printer for so long!

Cheers
