ddisoftware, Inc. is proud to announce Qimage Ultimate, a brand new product bringing new innovations to the world of digital photography!  While Qimage Ultimate will feel familiar to those who used Qimage (Lite, Pro, or Studio), it is more than than just an evolution of our award winning photo printing software!  It will redefine the way you work with photos!  With features like Lightning Raw that allows you to work with raw photos like never before and our image downloading software (FlashPipe) built into Qimage Ultimate, your entire photographic workflow just got easier!  From downloading your photos from flash cards all the way to the final print, Qimage Ultimate is truly the ultimate in batch photo processing and printing tools!

We've been working on Qimage Ultimate for a long time and we've done more than just move buttons and controls around!  The user interface has been redesigned to be more user friendly and we've included bold new features.  Lightning Raw allows you to work with raw photos just as easily (and just as fast) as JPEG's, taking the hassle out of shooting raw.  An industry first, Lightning Raw actually develops and caches your raw photos so they open as fast and as easily as a format like JPEG or TIFF once the initial thumbnail build is complete!  Now you can have the full control of raw when you need it without complicating your workflow!  You'll be amazed at how well Qimage renders your raw photos the first time (without any tweaking) and you may never need to touch the majority of of your raw photos other than to add them to the page and print!

In making Qimage Utimate, we also fully integrated our award winning FlashPipe image downloading software to make moving images from flash cards even easier.  Also included are all new features like EXIF transfers when converting raw (or any photo type) to JPEG or TIFF, and an all new software registration system that requires no serial numbers or unlock codes to make it even easier for our registered users to update their software!  Please try the online 14 day demo which now includes the ability to fully evaluate raw photo and other capabilities before you buy.  We hope you'll give Qimage Ultimate a try!

Regards,
Mike

What's up with Ultimate? It's running about 1/10 the speed of Studio when generating raw thumbs. It also takes a long time to save raw adjustments. It's almost like hyper threading is turned off (it's not, I checked it twice). I'm running a brand new I7 with windows 7 64 bit. This computer runs Studio at lightning speed and builds thumbs in a blur. Its almost like going back to my old Athlon. Any one have any ideas?

Hi,

Does this mean that there's no discount when upgrading to Ultimate from an "older" Studio?

Thanks.

Wow Ray,
I just tried it. Yes, it is taking much longer to build the thumbs as it is not only creating new thumbs in a better quality, but the "Lightning cache" part is creating it's cached copy.
I went and got a cup of coffee and it was done.
Just to see what happens, I closed Ultimate and reopened.
There they were! Only needed to build one time per folder.
If you do a refine, that thumb will rebuild, and its raw cached copy, not the whole folder.
Small wait for the speed I got when I load the queue, do a slide show, use the Image Editor screen.
It used to take 15 to 20 seconds per shot to open the new raw files in my Image Editor. Now they open like I am working with a JPG.

So far I love it.
I come home from a morning shoot with 125 shots, and just looking at them either with the hover spacebar or a slide show method was a long time.
I can't wait to check out the rest of it.
