Is there some way to copy images from several different saved jobs into one new job so that all the settings (especially cropping) are remembered for each image.

Example: I have 4 saved print jobs, each with a couple of dozen images. I want to recall each of those jobs, select 2 or 3 images from each job, and then combined the selected images from those 4 jobs into a single new job. I see that it is possible to create a new session containing only selected images from one existing job. However, I want to be able to start a new session with selected images from four different jobs.

Hi Granddaddy,
First thing, Qimage remembers the last PRINT crop you used for an image at a particular size, so no worries there.  Smiley

If you are  talking about actual saved "Jobs", then you cannot combine them directly as you recall.
However you can combine saved Sessions.
Here is what I would do:
Recall each job in turn and remove the images you do not require, then save as a separately named Session.
I assume all the printer settings would be the same for each job you had saved so they will  be in place.
Now recall each Session in turn and when asked, choose "Append", in that way each set of images will be added to the queue. You can then save the lot as a new Job or Session.
I like to use Sessions because of this sort of flexibility and it allows me to change the paper type late in the game if necessary.

Thanks, Terry. Works great. Your method saved me a lot of tedious work. I guess I'll start saving sessions instead of jobs in the future. I don't think the documentation makes any recommendations as to when to save a job versus a session. I've always used the job option when saving because it seemed more complete.

It's horses for courses. Sometimes it is important to save the whole thing but when the is a likelihood of changing images in the queue or the printer set up, then saved sessions are more useful.

Terry, you should also post this to the "Qimage--Documented & Undocumented" thread.  Great stuff, thanks much.
