Hi Fred.
I tried the 1200 ppl setting it didn't change the 600x600 screen res on the front screen, any other settings i might try?

17  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / 600x600 on: December 22, 2018, 02:02:33 PM
Is it possible to increase the resolution from the standard 600x600 on the front screen of Q-U if so how?

18  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / COLOR CAST (CANON IP8750 AND OTHER MODELS) on: February 19, 2018, 02:45:35 PM
Almost went insane trying to figure this one out. Bought a canon ip8750 three weeks ago.  
All the prints I made using the canon print preview box checked printed with a strong color cast when used in conjunction with ICC PROFILES.
After much advice, research, trial and error and reading that other users had experienced the same issue, I was advised not to use the Canon Print Preview.
My conclusion is:
   This seems to have solved the issue for me.
   Using the canon print preview option along with ICC Profiles appears to double profile the PRINT.  

First screen shot was printed directly from Qimage canon print preview unchecked (then scanned the print)  

Regards Mical.

Are you using the canon Print preview option? If you are UNCHECK IT. PRINT DIRECTLY FROM QIMAGE I had similar issues
when using ICC PROFILES.

Hi Fred.
While I was away I did some more research. A number of people had the same issue, major color cast when using ICC profiles BOTH ON PRINT PREVIEW AND THE PRINTED PICTURE. The answer is, DO NOT USE CANON PRINT PREVIEW - UNCHECK IT.
Printed straight from Qimage using the Profile Prism I made, all good - happy days. (See below).
Thanks for your input Fred.
Regards, Mical.

P.s. The print looks much better than the scan.

Hi Fred.Thank you so much for your time and effort so far.
I am going to be away from home for all of next week, could I please get back to you on my return?, unfortunately I am unable to put off this trip.
Thanks once again, Alan

The original
23  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: canon ip8750 on: February 10, 2018, 02:40:32 PM
still appeared to have a cast
24  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: canon ip8750 on: February 10, 2018, 02:28:48 PM
Hi Fred. how does it look to you so?
25  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: canon ip8750 on: February 10, 2018, 12:48:06 PM
Just adding to my first post - selecting NONE in the color matching menu does not seem to actually turn off Color Matching,
I think the cast may be an issue of double profiling, e.g. my ICC profile and Color Matching not being turned off.
Is it possible that Mike could have a look into there being a possible glitch? I've tried printing with my photo editor, it is ICC aware and it prints fine using my ICC profile. Color match does turn off using my photo editor.

Prints made with the profiles that came with the printer are OK with qimage set to let printer/driver manage color
27  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: canon ip8750 on: February 09, 2018, 05:21:29 PM
Hi Fred
Thanks for your reply; yes I have made numerous prints with both of the profiles I made; first with Epson glossy paper then with Epson heavyweight matte, all have printed with a cyan-ish cast.
I have always used third party inks with various paper types so creating ICC profiles has become part of my work flow.
That was with my old Epson of course, with this canon ip8750 I am wondering whether the print driver is limited to Canon ink/Canon paper only profiles from the drop down list in the menu, in which case I may have made a bad choice.
If you any further ideas I would appreciate any help. Many Thanks, Mical

Just bought a canon ip8750 printer.(my Epson 2100 14 years old died)

Created an ICC profile using Profile Prism.(I have been using qimage and profile prism for years); followed the instructions
in color management to the letter selected NONE in the color matching menu.
however the PRINTS HAVE A CAST, I would much appreciate any help or comments. Many thanks, mical.

Using the canon print preview option seems to add back into the print an unwanted level of color management when using
Hope these new comments help if anyone comes across this issue.
Regards Mical.         
29  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / AVG internet secruity (false positive?????) on: September 12, 2015, 07:46:51 PM
Hi all.
I just tried to download QU-2016-121 but my AVG internet security promptly stopped the download, quarantined a threat and gave me this, see screen shot. Any pointers as to how to proceed?

Hi Bill, apologies for not replying until now, illness reared its ugly head.
The hardware I use is an Epson Perfection flatbed 3200 scanner,old but ok for me.
The software is Silverfast AI Studio. Using the 'multiscan 2 or 4 passes' does a really good scan.
Thanks for the pointers you raised.

Hi Alan-

What are you using to scan the negs?
Regarding the conversion, for B&W it should make very little difference- the intent (RC or Perc.) determines how the converter handles out of gamut colors, which I doubt you have here. That said, sometimes you'll see a difference, usually the Perc. is somewhat lighter in the mid-tones and highlights.

However, sometimes you'll also see a difference where with perc. you lose some of the darkest shadows- obviously a problem printing on matte papers!
See my new post about weirdness of Photoshop conversions versus converting in Qimage- suffice it to say that Qimage is different, and better. I am still trying to puzzle this one out!

Feel free to call if you want to discuss this further.

Scanning very old b/w negs to RGB files for restoration and to add limited colours in PS(see attachment). When printed on  gloss paper, (Ilford smooth high gloss), all is good - i.e. neutral grays and accurate colour and very little metamerism.
However, printing on matte paper, metamerism is an issue when viewed under artificial lighting.
Question: any recommendations for a matte paper that is not prone to metamerism for this type of print output and regarding rendering intent would relative colourmetric be best?
My printer is on old Epson 2100. I am using pigment CIS system Photo black. All my profiles are created using PP and printed through QSE.
Many thanks
