Sorry to ask what may be blatantly obvious, but ... for the 12 years I've been using Qimage/Ultimate, I've always printed files I had sized and cropped in Photoshop and saved as TIFFs before bringing into Qimage/Ultimate. Now I'd like to print a sheet of 3.5" 5.5" images to cut and mount on folded card stock, but Qimage scales my image to 3.5" 4.67". I haven't found a way to change the aspect ratio, i.e. scale my image without constraining its proportions/aspect ratio. Because it's an abstract image, some distortion is acceptable; I don't want to crop the image. Is there a way to freely scale an image?

Hi Bill
Haven't spoken in a while
Happy Holidays


As for your question, you know you can right click on any print size in the Prints tab and change the size to 3.5 x 5.5; crop scissor on, and you will always get 3.5 x 5.5 (not messing with scaling in the driver)
As for intentional distortion, sorry that ceases to be a photo, and Qimage has never played that game.
Stay well Bill
Fred

Thanks, Fred. I was indeed looking for intentional distortion without cropping, similar to being able to Uncheck "Constrain Proportions" in the Image Size dialogue of Photoshop. I guess that's where I'll have to go to achieve my goal here ;-)
