v2010.103     08/03/10     

Priority: Med     

v2010.103 includes the following:

  • Raw thumbnail building: New dual stage thumbnail builder builds raw thumbnails much faster.  Start working with your raws and create print jobs right away while Qimage Ultimate builds its raw cache invisibly in the background!
  • Build thumbs/cache for entire folder trees: Simply browse to a folder and click "Thumb Builder" from the top menu and select "Build all thumbs/cache" and Qimage Ultimate will build thumbs/cache for all images in the current folder and all subfolders.  This is a great way to start a thumb/cache build to ensure you don't have to wait when navigating to new folders.  Progress of the build is shown above the thumbnails and you can even navigate away from the thumb/cache building to another folder or even close Qimage Ultimate if you don't want to wait for the build to finish.  To resume building the tree of thumbs/cache, just open the saved album "Thumb Build" with the date/time you started the build.  Qimage Ultimate will pick up right where it left off, and will continue down the tree until it is finished!
  • Thumb/cache management: Added new options under "Utilities", "Manage Thumbs and Raw Cache" to help users manage the files that are thumbed or cached by Qimage Ultimate.
  • Fixes: Fixed some minor bugs and occasional error messages.

v2010.121     09/15/10     

Priority: Low     

v2010.121 adds two new features related to emailing photos and managing photo albums:

  • Emailing photos: Added the ability to send original photos along with any filters via email.  Simply select thumbnail(s) and then right click and select "Send Via Email".  The new option "Send Original Files - don't convert" will attach the selected photos along with any Qimage raw refinements and (editing) filters that belong to those photos.  This feature is useful when you want to email original photos without converting them to JPEGs, particularly when the recipient owns Qimage and may benefit from your Qimage editing and refinements.
  • Albums: When an album is opened via the "Open Album" button above the thumbnails, a prompt will appear asking if you would like to open the album or the folder IF the album only contains one full folder of images.  This is useful when opening albums created via the "Flash Card Copy/Move" process since it makes finding single download folders easier.

v2010.122     09/29/10     

Priority: Low     

v2010.122 includes the following:

  • Single raw HDR: The raw refine dialog now includes a significantly improved fill light and a new "HDR" slider.  To create high dynamic range photos, simply expose for the highlights when you take your raw photo and then when refining your raw in Qimage Ultimate, add enough fill to brighten the shadows.  Then simply drag the "HDR" slider to the right to recover any lost detail in the highlights by compressing the dynamic range.  By operating only the fill and HDR sliders, its easy to create beautiful HDR photos from a single raw exposure!  In many cases (when dynamic range isn't extreme), single raw HDR photos produce better results than many people are achieving with multiple exposures.  Note: the fill light in both the raw refine dialog and the (non raw) image editor have been improved and may show slight differences from prior versions.  Please double check for proper fill and exposure prior to printing photos when fill light was added in previous versions of Qimage/Qimage Ultimate.
  • Fixes and improvements: Fixed some minor bugs and made some slight improvements to some windows and dialogs.

v2010.123 includes the following:

  • Raw highlight recovery: A highlight recovery option has been added to the raw refine dialog: clicking once on a tile in the exposure grid exposes for that area of the image as always, but now you can click a second time on the same tile to recover maximum highlight detail in the selected area!
  • User sizeable Flash Card Copy/Move dialog: The Flash Card Copy/Move dialog can now be sized taller to accommodate more (visible) rows in the operations table.
  • Other improvements: This version also improves some EXIF info/display dialogs.

Introducing Qimage Ultimate 2013!  We've been working diligently to bring you new innovations that will take photo and print detail to new levels!  Our new Deep Focus Sharpening (DFS) is an innovative new sharpening method that allows sharpening deep into the details without introducing artifacts such as haloes, specular clipping, and noise grain.  Qimage Ultimate 2013 uses DFS to sharpen both photos and prints, rendering super sharp photographic prints, conversions, and upsampled copies without the harshness and artifacts typically associated with the older unsharp mask (USM).  Be sure to upgrade to Qimage Ultimate 2013 so you can enjoy even clearer, sharper prints.  We've also made a host of improvements to the UI to improve workflows such as the ability to open the raw (refine) editor from the image editor window, ability to selectively see and clear image edits, and more!  v2013.100 is also Windows 8 ready!

v2014.100    07/26/13

Priority: High

v2014.100 includes the following:

Welcome to 2014 (Overview)

    Qimage Ultimate 2014 comes with some major improvements and new pricing for 2014.  UI improvements reduce eyestrain while making controls more readable, and new image databasing tools allow you to add user descriptions to any folder, album, or photo, with the ability to search those descriptions to locate important photos and events.  Entering user descriptions couldn't be easier: just browse to a folder and your thumbnails are displayed automatically.  If you would like to enter a description for that folder, simply type the description under the folder name on the main window.  It's as simple as that!  Want to enter a description for individual photos?  Click the small "i" button on any thumbnail and enter your description.  The "i" turns blue, letting you know a description exists for that thumbnail.  Hold your mouse over any blue "i" indicator on any thumbnail to see the description, or click to change.

    These non-invasive tools allow you to enter data and search your existing photo folders without being forced to fumble with clumsy "collections".  If you already have your photos stored in sensible folders by event, date, subject, etc. and you don't need the new data tools: simply access your existing folder structure immediately.  If you'd like to supplement your existing photos (or locations) with user descriptions, just enter them as you go.  No clumsy data workflows required: no "importing" or "syncing" necessary and no new hoops to jump through just because you want to be able to enter and search descriptions!

    Oh, and the 2014 pricing?  With all these improvements, you'd think we increased the price.  But we didn't!  Regular price is now $74.99 with $5 off for trying the demo, so you can get Qimage Ultimate for $69.99 by ordering from the trial!

Details...

UI Improvements, Raw Photo Update, and New Tools

   
  • Major UI improvements: New Darkroom 2014 skin offers a more modern look, easier to read fonts, and improved controls.
  • Major raw photo upgrade: Many new cameras supported (too many to list) plus improvements in processing speed.
  • New album tool: When viewing an album, click the "Display folders" button above the thumbs to see photo locations!
  • Back button: New back button next to folder history allows you to go back to the previous folder/album.

Image Databasing

   
  • Image databasing: Very easy to use UI allows you to add user descriptions to your albums, folders and individual images!
  • Flash card copy/move: Add a description from the get-go when you load new photos from a flash card.
  • Folders/albums: When you browse to a new folder or album, simply type your description for that folder/album on the main window.
  • Images: Click the small "i" button on any thumbnail to add a description, then hover over any blue "i" to see the description.
  • Search tools: Click the search button (binoculars) above the thumbnails to search folder, album, image descriptions.
  • Non-invasive user data: Enter a description for any existing folder, album, or photo: no need to redo your library with "collections"!

Hey, this really works.
It has expanded the usable area or zones that you can use to click on.
I used to find a good spot for a White Balance click, and when I clicked, I got a message that my spot was too bright ot too dark.

That's gone now. A new formula is in play.
It works.
I used to go to the Editor to do my White Balance when the one in Refine was cranky.
Now it's as smooth as can be,

2017.120 includes the following:

         - The new default, IntelliSpace places prints intelligently on the page, starting at the top but centering prints once most of the page is used.
          - Prints are auto-sorted (can be turned off to maintain user order) so that matching sizes are easy to cut.
          - Prints are spaced 1/4 inch (~6mm) apart for easy cutting when possible: unless reducing/removing the gap results in more prints per page.
          - Prints are placed such that cuts are never blocked (single swipes of cutters can be used to cut each print from the page).
          - Prints (or groups of nested prints) that cover most of the page are always perfectly centered on the physical paper when using sheet paper!
          - Prints always fill from top-down (do not center) when using roll paper.
  • IntelliCut print placement: Same as IntelliSpace above, except with no gap between adjacent prints; allows single cuts to separate adjoining prints.
  • Printer carriage indicator: Fine dotted line at the edge of the page in Live View shows where the paper exits the printer (useful for landscape printing).
  • Other fixes and enhancements: Some bug fixes and improvements such as a higher visibility print progress bar and improved support for non-English characters.

Let me tell you... Mike is very understated announcing the release of Qimage Ultimate 2020.100
I was able to spend some intense time playing with this new version and I must say, I would be having a parade and a marching band.
It is magical. I open a job and the it opens but no images, QU will  find the images and place them in the job on screen.

If I open an AUTO SAVED job and the little sample viewer box is blank (meaning it cant find the image you printed, likely because it was moved), QU 2020 will find it and open the job with the images.

Mike even made a new dashing Opening Logo for us.

If he doesn't make a video tonight, I will make one in the morning.

2020.103 includes UI optimizations and stability improvements.
Besides many speed improvements, there's a subtle improvement .
It has to do with thumb building. 
Thumbs will be rebuilt when you open a new folder or if you request a rebuild.
Then thumbs will scroll faster and have a stable size.
The bonus is the thumb will retain the size you selected.
To clarify, if you set your thumbs to medium on the main screen; see snap 007, It will keep that size regardless if you move the separator bar, or use the BLUE ARROW to see more thumbs. See 008.
The thumbs will show more when you shift the screen, but they stay the same size see 009
Right click on the blue arrow sets it back to default screen.
It's neat for me. My old eyes are older than I am.
Play with it, and enjoy
