Mike, I was reading An answer you gave to another gentleman.  Should I be using intelispace? I am printing Canson  platine on canon1000. Printable borders are not even and I want the image centered on the entire paper.

Thank you for the tips. I have been able to get some prints centered, and a few not centered even though the numbers say itís centered and the print preview looks centered. Print head is aligned.  What exactly are those numbers in the margins preference? And every time I make a print I have to zero them? Something doesnít add up.  Not saying itís the software, itís always user error in my book. I just wish I was getting somewhere, I just feel like every time I hit print I am crossing my fingers.

You should set all of the additional margins in preferences to zero by clicking "clear margins".  IntelliCenter will center prints regardless of margins.  The only time IntelliCenter won't center is when it can't: because the print is too large to be centered in a non-centered printable area.

If I am determined to sharpen red grape shot,  Watch the shirt/ red/Tie area.
I would use a 5/40   it sharpens the background a bit without bothering foreground. Slider all the way left, of course.

I am going to email two qrs files. One is 2950 to show you what a touch of ODR does for that shot, and 2103

Just pop them into the folder with your images

Good morning Fred,

My RAW Image Options is set at 2/150 and the slider midway. I guess they were what you recommended sometime ago. Would you go with 1/180 now?

I did not realise that was the setting he was talking about.

When I go to Edit Image I'll revert to my 5/80 on DFS. What would you use on that shot which Terry chose of the man with the red grapes?

White Balance. My understanding is that RAW does not store a white balance setting so the only one I bother about on my e-m5 is when I shoot videos as they go straight to the video format. On those Remembrance Sunday shots I corrected the WB in RAW against the flagpole and in the vineyard one against some white clothing.

Yes my images are far less noisy as I 'overexpose'. I let the highlights burn out on my camera created jpgs. If I am not getting some flashing I know I am underexposing.

Tony

All other points noted. I'll work with ANR turned off. Would you still do sharpening 1/180 and half the EQ slide.

Tony,
Forgive me for butting in, but Terry is referring to the sharpening in Raw .... so unticking ANR renders that effectively off anyway.
There is NO setting in the Editor DFS that is suggested. Each image stands on its own whether ir might need sharpening.
Clarification.  
The "PUSH" from 200 o 400 in the ISO box is just saying: In order fro QU to get the decent rendering you see, would have been achieved at ISO 400.

What struck me in the face before anything else was the obvious poor  White Balance setting. I did a correction in RAW REFINE, and wow, what a difference. They popped out.
By the way, in case you forget, I have many noisy images from years ago from you.
These are really very good... Like Terry, I see no noise problem.

Thanks,

I have moved the slider so it is now showing 600-5000 and then 5000+

I saved it my default for the e-m5 mk 2.

I was fascinated to see you pick 1/180 for the DFS. Do you have a work flow for incrementing the two figures to get the best pairing? I've been using 5/80 for ages and that is totally different.

I should have said increase the threshold,  move the slider to the left in raw preferences.
Yes, the sharpening setting seemed fine. You need to compare results of preference changes, it  sometimes takes a few goes.

I suggest you reduce the NR threshold for that camera to less than 400iso

Thanks Terry,

Can you explain that in a different way please.

Hi Tony,

Something made me wonder whether the softness was coming in from the Qimage RAW processing.
... etc.
I've had a look at those images and I do not see any problem whatsoever.
The raw Granular NR is 2/10 which is nothing as is pushing the effective ISO to 400 or so.
My refine sharpening preference is set to 1/180 with the EQ slide just a a little above half way.
The images are crisp but  do agree that turning off ANR improves it.
See attached screen shot from the image (ANR on) examiner 100%.
I suggest you reduce the NR threshold for that camera to less than 400iso
