Hi Terry
Superb results.

Hi Fred

I process all my Raw files with Capture NX2 then convert to Tif. I am very happy with Capture for my Raw conversion, especially the U-point technology along with Color Efex Pro filters.

I could probably use Ultimate for 75% of my Raw conversion.

No doubt in my mind  Qimage is   by a country mile the best printing software in the market place.

I run Fusion on my Mac Pro  so I can print via Qimage Studio Edition with no problems, I have  run  the Ultimate trial but it seems to run slower than the Studio Edition. I love all the new features that are in the Ultimate product though, maybe someone can let us know if they are having the same experience as myself.

I am running on a Mac / Fusion VM Windows XP  Ultimate is running slow compared with the  Studio Edition.

Hi Mike

It would make me very happy, if you can produce the same result, can I send you a before and after file, please let me have your mail address and I will oblige.

Hi Terry

Fair comment, I have a lot of respect for Moose Peterson who is a fine Landscape and Wildlife photographer and I have to agree with him when he  makes a statement that it his the best filter for Landscapes.

I took the liberty of downloading one of your images  from your gallery, I hope you do not mind ?  the Butterfly and ran it through the filter, though it is not the perfect way to process it, it sure brings out the detail in your great pic.

Would  you like me to email it to you for your comments, you can pick up my email from my profile.

I understand that we are now moving away from the initial thread.

Just starting our day here in New Zealand, enjoy the rest of your evening.

Hi Terry
Your missing the point, just forget how many licences you can  purchase, if the Raw conversion will not give me the result I require, I will not upgrade to Ultimate. I am more than happy with Qimage Studio which gives me fantastic print results on my Epson 7900.         

You have also missed the point regarding Tonal Contrast, though you can also use it to give you the Grunge look for HDR, that is not what it is used for, it really makes landscape shots "pop" I suggest you download the free trial and test it fully before you make a final judgement.

Tried to emulate what I can produce using Capture NX2, just not possible. Tonal Contrast is a fantastic filter and by far my favorite, have a look at this http://moosepeterson.com/blog/?tag=niks-tonal-contrast.

I agree, I just wish we could plug in the Nik products to Q/ultimate, it would be a perfect world then. maybe Mike may have some ideas.

Firstly I am amazed at the negativity regarding  Qimage Ultimate.

Users of Qimage have had a great run with the deal from Mike, for me Qimage is the best printing product by a mile and the price was a give away, people who purchase Ultimate once again have a great deal, so just stop moaning.

I have been a long time user of Capture NX2 with the full suite of Color Efex Pro 3 and find this to be the best Raw converter for my Nef. files.

Currently  testing Ultimate for Raw conversion,my first impression of Lightning Raw is good, if I had the Tonal Contrast and Brilliance/ Warmth filters which I use a lot on my landscape shots, I think I would be very happy with the Ultimate Package, though I must admit I just love the Nik U-Point technology.

I wish Mike all the best for the future, for sure he is unique in his far thinking approach to our requirements, we are fortunate to have him using his programming skills in our sector of the industry.

I am running Qimage on my Mac Pro via Fusion VM. just runs great never a problem.

After a 51 year career in the Printing Industry, I have no doubt in my mind that Qimage is head and shoulders above anything else available.

All my PP work is done via  Capture NX2 gives me the best Raw conversion from D300, then print through Qimage to the Epson 7900.

Thanks Mike for such a fantastic product.
