16  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Rendering Intent when printing B&W? on: October 17, 2011, 07:27:14 PM

I use Perceptual and BPC 'On', but the best way is to try the alternatives out for yourself. Place two (or more) copies on a page, right-click on one of them, and choose 'Custom Color Management Settings'. You can then change the settings for that copy and see the difference side by side.

Boy! Do I feel stupid. Why didn't I think of that myself? Please pretend you didn't read my post until...next year or something.

Following your adwise, I printed four copies of an image on a single sheet of paper, all with different color managment settings, but I am unable to tell them apart. So, quality wise, it seems that there's nothing to gain by changing Rendering Intent and BPC for B&W prints - at least on my system it isn't.

Thank you for your help.

I get really great, neutral B&W prints, but you know, we are always striving for "more", no matter what the "more" is, so I guess my question(s) this time are:

When printing B&W photos, which rendering intent should I use to get the best results? Does it really matter? Should I just stick with Perceptual (default)?

Black Point Compensation - on/off?

OK, one last video for today making 3 new ones.  This last one covers printer drivers, settings, etc. associated with using printer ICC profiles with your printer and paper.

Just one small thing regarding the "Print Drivers & ICC Profiles" video that made me wondering if I am doing something wrong.

I noticed that you in the Canon driver setup had selected "Auto" as the halftoning method. I have always used "Diffusion", so my question is: by using "Diffusion", is my setup suboptimal?

I am getting 'super-duper' (as you put it) prints, no problems there, but your video just made me wondering.

When I open RAW Images from my camera (Canon EOS 40D) in the Refine Window, they always look like the attached screenshot. Text, sliders and buttons are crammed together on top of each other. It only happens with photos taken in portrait mode. Landscape images look just fine. Resizing or maximizing the window doesn't seem to help as the size of the "Image details" part remain the same.

So, I guess my question is: is this a bug or...?

No big deal, just wondering.
