Thanks, Fred.

Shame you cannot just right click on the thumbnail and "convert image," but at least I can avoid the photo editor...

I would like to periodically use QI-U to convert raw image to tif. I would like to then process tif file in Photoshop.

I would like to set white balance and exposure in QI-U without entering the image editor, and save to tif. I cannot figure out how to do this.

I would like to save a 16-bit tif image. I cannot find this setting either - tif files saved (via image editor) are 8-bit.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, my point was not clear...

Why shoot raw at all, or use QU, if you are going to end up using embedded jpegs? Not an elegant solution...

So, Fred, now we are using QU raw processing software to extract jpegs? Sorry, but this suggestion seems over the top.

I have taken a brief look at Qimage Ultimate (QU), and will continue evaluating it...

I take many series of exposure-bracketed shots (for HDR or blending), and tend to use wide angle lenses (e.g., 12-24 mm). QU does not seem helpful with either of these scenarios. All the wide angle shots need distortion correction prior to printing (which Lightroom 3, for example, does automatically based on camera and lens). The work flow involved in blending multiple exposures via QU would be tedious at best; actually, I am not sure it would work at all since QU attempts to correct for the under and over exposure.

I just want to make sure I have an accurate understanding of the software so that I can evaluate it fairly...

I do not have an issue with selling new software and defining a new business model - it makes sense to me.

I agree with Andy, however, that the choice of "Qimage Ultimate" for the name of the new software is unfortunate (in that it appears to generate confusion). It does not sound "new." We have Qimage Pro, Qimage Studio, Qimage Ultimate... Sounds like flavors of the same software rather than a new distinctly different software program.

Sounds very interesting.

There is one very important bit of information lacking, from what I can tell, from all the information I reviewed on your web site.

That is, what specifically is the "discounted" annual renewal fee???
