I also like the larger views in the Advanced Layout tool (formerly called Page Editor)
What a huge and smart version.!!

Fred

Looking forward to the Floating Text update.

Yes, sunlight was the answer.  Well, actually, we don't have sunlight at the moment - lots of fog!
The way to overcome lack of good daylight is to use an OTT Light. I've had one for some time to check prints next to my monitor.
I Think this is the latest version of what I've got, it now includes 3 colour temperature settings.

Hello All

Can one of you experts give me an idea of the compression factors when giving a Zoom club demo.

I have a presentation to give which is 34MB, and my internet connection is via miles of copper wire and therefore very slow, and I have no idea if my comments and indeed the actual image viewers are receiving is in sink with what I see on my screen.

When I look at others presentations the pics, comments etc are often way off sync. and my upload will be much slower.

Thanks

Jeff

I have almost completed mine, I have used Qimage, Affinity and Elements 7 to prepare the content, then put it all together with Scribus for final printing in Qimage

Why do it simple when you can make it complicated?

I had the good fortune to help by playing with 2021.
It is fantastic.
Fred

OK, there are very few brain cells left, and spell checker not much good either.

INK Cost Matters

So I really don't give a rat's behind that it is $17.00 for a 13ml cartridge (I get free paper if I buy 4 carts)
So what do you think, am I nuts?

Fred

No.

You are getting good prints that give you satisfaction in doing a good job.

Most of my prints are for giving away, but I am not sure all recipients appreciate the quality turned out by the Canon 100. even on cheap 10p per sheet Pound Shop paper.

Hello and help!

I've been trying to save a landscape photo that has a caption along the lower margin.  I can save the image OK, but the caption never gets saved . . . anyone know the solution, or what I'm doing wrong.

FredSG

Go to -  File > Print to > Printer/File

Select File and follow the resulting options..

True, I do have Elements 7 but cannot remember the last time I used it.

Jeff

All this and much more while retaining the highest quality regardless of what your job requires.
So I must ask, other than you paid big bucks, and you got used to it, what does PS do that you otherwise cannot do?


You are sticking your neck out as we say.

I have never had PS so could not possibly comment.

Can you give us any tips using ClipCache Pro  eg do you just pile the clips in one big list.   I am trying to decide if ClipCache is better than NoteTabLite   (Free) https://www.notetab.com/notetab-light which can be nominated to record all copy commands.

Jeff

But the single most important feature for me is the capture of the source URL for the capture clip.  By right clicking on a particular clip, I can choose to open open my browser (again, see the screenshot).

There are other similar, and excellent, programs for Windows, some freeware, and I've tried many over the years, but I don't remember any of them having easy access to opening the source URL along with the other featuees I like.

And FWIW, I'm just a loyal ClipCache Pro user, I have no other affiliation with the product.


Thanks for info, prog sounds interesting especially the recording on URL's

I will continue giving it a try, and hope is replaces all the paper notes I collect then forget about.

Adding my voice to those who read often/write seldom.  I copy relevant/interesting passages/threads and store them in a bookmark manager (ClipCache Pro, used it for 10+ years); a folder just for Qimage.  (There are probably dozens of tips, tricks, notes of items I'll probably never use, but I browse them occasionally, just in case.)

I was also going to point out the number of views posts such as this one has, but that count is somewhat inflated as I'm sure I'm not the only one who has viewed it at least 3 times.

So, thank you Fred, Mike, Terry, and others who contribute.  It is much appreciated.
