Bob,
Terry Skyped me with a thought.....
It's a new computer and possibly some basic settings haven't been looked at.
There's one in Qimage where you tell your processor how many threads to use.
See attached screen snap.
After a lot of testing years ago, best overall speed was when set to all threads and AUTO.
But have a look. It might be set incorrectly.

f you have any ideas about what might be happening I would appreciate you insights.
Thanks again.

Bob, the explanation is straightforward.
First of all, TIFs and PSDs are larger files. They will take longer. JPGs and Raws are  more reasonable in size. (Assuming you have a reasonable number of Pixels per shot)
The rebuild in your case involves deleting the old thumbs and rebuilding new ones.
The task is CPU intensive and is a one time build.  Qimage is building more than thumbs, but the cache files that go with each image. Once done, they stay with your images.

You can improve your wait time by Using the selection in the drop down menu from Thumb Cache folder, RAW only or new raw only.

I am curious to know the pixel dimensions of your images. You might have one of those NIKONs with a 75 megabyte image file and a 36.3 Mega pixel size, and that would take a while.

Repeating the main point, QU is building high Quality cache files along with the thumbs. This is the important fact to keep in mind since it is a one time build, and contributes to te extraordinary quality I get from Qimage.

Hope this helps.
Fred

That worked.
A very long, slow process to rebuild thumbs and I have only allowed tiff and psd files.  If raw and/or jpeg was selected I would still be working on the first folder.  I have a fairly new and very fast system with 32 gb ram but trying to browse anything more than tiff and psd files in QU and my computer is on its knees.  Any other image browser I use is very fast but not QU.  Not sure what it is doing but after 1/2 hour to browse a folder with only 256 images I gave up and ended it with the task manager.  Tried again with a different folder and the same thing.  It never used to be like this.  I now have only tiff and psd selected and still very slow to browse and also render thumbs, however, manageable.  Once rendered everything is quick.

If you have any ideas about what might be happening I would appreciate you insights.
Thanks again.
Bob

I recently had to rebuild my Win 10 computer.  Everything including QU reinstalled perfectly EXCEPT the QU thumbnail and center display panel colors are way off.  They are washed out and subdued.  The softproof colors are perfect and so are the edit panel colors perfect.  The prints come out correctly. I have tried everything I can think of to get the thumbs and center display panel to display the correct colors.  The colors were fine before I had to rebuild win 10.  The color difference is very, very obvious. It is probably something simple, however, I am definitely not seeing it.
Hi Bob,
step by step:

1) Set thumb quality to best by using menu item set to Best Thumb Quality See screen snap 005.
2) Now do a rebuild of thumbs in current folder using Select all and rebuild selected. see Screensnap 007
3) If all is well, you can continue to do each folder, or use screen snap 006 to redo them all.
4 When doing 007, say hello to "James"

Hi,
I've just installed 2019.115 (jumped from 2018.120), when I double click on a image thats in the queue to get to the edit screen, then click Done, qimage removes the image from the queue.
If rather than double clicking the image to get to the edit page I use either the drop down menu or Ctrl+Alt+F then when I click Done and return to the main screen the image is still in the queue.
I have been through the "reset ALL program settings" and this has not helped.
Thanks
Chris

Thanks Fred,

I must have created the printer-target-40.tif a few years ago and forgotten. I assumed incorrectly that it was installed with the software updated recently.
The printing on the bottom of printer-target-40.tif in the Prism directory is in the attachment.

The instructions after "Reference Target" included: "Simply look at the name of the data file listed here and make sure that the same name/number is listed on your reference target in the lower right corner." The reference target has 'Printer Target - PP v4.x' listed in the lower right corner. The file listing for ...\Prism\Data doesn't include a file with that name or any other name I can associate with the name printed on the target. The closest to the name in the lower right corner is in a series running from pp-10 through pp-30. I am looking for a dat file to load that will correctly reflect the values on the 'printer-target-40.tif' file set in Printer Target.

Thanks for your help and quick reply,
Jim

Jim,
I have some very old paper targets that say (lower right) Chart Version PP 10 and Chart version PP 18.
They are obsolete.
Proper target is called IT-8
It is an acetate target and has a CHARGE number, lower right. That number should show in the reference target box. You have to scroll for it.
See both screen snaps.
Fred
