                                                         WDIDN                   What Do I Do Now

This is a tough question when the User Interface is fresh and new too.
We expect "FILE/ OPEN....and select an image....
Instead we get FILE /RECALL / SAVE/ OPEN ALBUM... Huh?Huh??

Hopefully the next two videos will get you up and running. 
Follow that up with selecting some Challenges from the Qimage Ultimate Challenges section of this forum that will address specific questions.

After viewing the videos here, and your printer is not a Canon, click on the third video which addresses the printer drivers for other brands.

Another option is to ask as many times on as many topics that you have right here on this forum.

If you prefer to get answers via email, that is good too, and even by live telephone.

Hope this section will help you get started into the wonderful experience of producing the highest Quality prints possible.

Please ask questions if there are areas that need more clarification.

Good effort. You must spend a lot of time creating instructional videos.

But, I am afraid if I presented Qimage to our camera club members and such instructional videos to get them going,  I would just get blank faces even though they are faced with expensive subscription PS.

Still I like it an the videos, and they correctly think I am an 'odd bod'

One thing I would add, setting up the print driver and saving for future, just make sure it is the correct setting in every respect other wise error is carried on Ad infinitum.  I speak from experience.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Jeff.
This is what I want to know!!!!
Exactly where and what will cause the blank faces??
What did I miss? What did I not explain clearly enough?

To be perfectly honest about the video, Mike also felt that the "saving or the printer setups" at that point was unnecessary.
Qimage Ultimate is smart enough to remember all the driver settings by paper selection alone.

In other words, all I need to do is set the paper to Luster and the profile I select is for that Luster, and the Quality setting is max for that paper, and Color management off, any time I select that paper, it remembers those settings.

I was trying to show blatantly, that you wont have to go through the tedious driver settings again for that setup.

You ask -

Answer -

Complete refusal to accept there are progs
other than PS and LightRoom.

Learning the prog via Videos would also be a no go.

I think YouTube videos are a great learning method, I find it no difficulty to flip back and forth from video to program.  The only actual problem is there are so many youtube suggestions that I frequently get side tracked and look at totally unrelated stuff.

Would really like a written manual. Videos are a good supplement, but take too long to watch and tedious to search through to find answer to a specific issue.

Jeff,
What Qimage contains for help by Mike is far superior to a drudgery manual.
There are small SPECIFIC videos denoted by a RED V located on almost every screen area that you need clarification.
Look for the red V.

The WDIDN video you show in the subject line was sort of a 'tongue in cheek' simulating panic with a new interface.
See sample screen snaps.
