Hi there, I get a lot of use out of Qimage so thanks for making such a useful piece of software. I have a couple of bits that could make my life so much easier for when I'm processing a lot of images.

You have the 'Load Innitial Properties' button in the Prints section at the bottom on the left, I use this to load my borders. However, I use two different types of borders. I'm either using 0.5 ml black borders for all paper prints to make sure I don't trim white prints too small, or I'm creating canvas prints with a stretch border and a white border on top. It would be awesome if that button to load the settings allowed me to select between pre-saved borders, it doesn't take too long to change but I print a lot and every second counts.

The other thing that would really help me would be if there were three border options. I'll explain how I'd use this. So I create canvases with a 0.9" stretch and then a 0.8" white border. This system works perfectly for me until I'm printing a white canvas and so I can't see where the print, stretch, and border are. All I would need then is a 0.01" black border to outline the whole thing. At the minute I have to change it to a 1.7" white border. Again, not totally awful just it could save me a bunch of time each day without having to switch the settings.

Please let me know if these are features that I just haven't found!

Thanks!
Ben

Just a thought... 2 cents worth.
You already have the ability to make three borders.
Use the two provided and create a third border using the MAT feature.
As a matter of fact, you can make all your borders using mats.
It is so versatile that you can make the sides of variable thicknesses.
