Im sure this has been discussed on the boards, however, cant seem to find an answer, soooo. I know I can spacebar on a thumbnail and the image is perfect, but, in the image print window the image has the jaggies. This  seems to be true no matter what type image is viewed. Am I doing something wrong in QI Studio?
Using Windoz Vista Ultimate 64, 4gig mem, latest ver of QI.

The print preview window (upper right) is drawn using low resolution thumbnail images.
In Qimage, go to VIEW. Then Thumbnail File Browser, Thumb Quality, and select High Quality.
That is the best that will show.
Also in the equation, is the resolution of the image you want to preview. If that is very low to start with, even High Quality wont help that much.

Fred,

What surprises me in the Qimage thumbnails is that any noise available in the original seems to be multiplied in the thumbnails. With any setting for the thumbnails and despite huge image files. Scanned images of 6x9 B&W film for example show that while 5D MK II 21MP files or small Fuji compact files do not show it. It is almost as if the noise pattern at the original size is spread over the thumbnail at any size. Must be aliasing. It is not a problem but strange in a way. I can take out the noise ((aliased) film grain) in the originals but I like them that way.


met vriendelijke groeten, Ernst Dinkla
