Hi, Mike. I zipped the files for both jobs. See attached.

Hi Brad,
I was waiting for someone else to pop on, but so far.....
OK I inserted the "job" files you posted into the correct folder on my machine.
It opened over and over perfectly. I studied your video and matched every mouse move including typing in to the search box exactly what you typed. (I did have to ask Terry what you typed. His eyes are a lot younger than mine)
I only missed the actual images from the job, but since I do have the Z3200 HP driver installed, the recall of the JOB set that driver to your specs too.

Everything went perfectly.

I think Terry got the same result, but he can speak for himself.

Mike is really "into" some heavy programming work, and will have a microscopic look as soon as he gets time.

Fred


Thanks Fred. If you need, I can send other Qimage files. FWIW, "Control with no parent" suggests a user interface problem. If there is a "debug" mode in Qimage that I can enable, please advise.

I'm also into some heavy deadline work for another week, so my response time will be longer (than it normally is!).

Cheers!

Brad

I am trying to print one or two small 8x10" test prints from images I will be printing roughly 40x60.
I need the test prints to be at the same resolution, and undergoing the same qimage sharpening as the large print will.
I am trying to evaluate detail in some vital areas- to see how large I can push these before I get rasterization like artifacts.
I am pushing things- I will be at 150-170ppi.
Looking for a way to do this without throwing away 40x60 prints.
Printing through qimage to an ipf8400.  Workflow exported from lightroom.
I am sure this is covered somewhere in this forum, but i did try to search without success.
Any thoughts?
Thanks
Gary

Gary,
Qimage has exactly what you need all built in. It's called the test strip It keeps shrinking the test print but keeps the ppi, and allows yo0u to slide around and print/inspect the areas you want to check on.
Let me find the video for you..

Here's the video

I recently did some tests with flash diffusers that fit onto the hot shoe when the pop-up flash is used on a DSLR.
I've had one of these gadgets for some time but after hearing a talk related to macro photography where the speaker used this idea for moths and other insects.

Some test shots that show how effective the shadow softening is with 2 different diffusers can be seen here:

Macro shots using the smaller diffuser shown in the link above can be seen here.

Hi,

I never see a blue line around the thumbnails, no matter what I'm doing.
The blue line is around the image on the Page Preview, not thumbnails. Also in the Page Editor.
Select the image on the Page Preview and use the Zebra button on that image to bring up the Print Properties dialogue to set Poster arrangement etc.
Terry

Okay, I finally figured this out, maybe.  (It's worked 5 times in a row, so there's hope.)  But first...

I was confused by this part of your previous reply:

Quote
I can see on the left hand side of your screen shot, the image is not selected (no blue line around the edge) therefore the 3x1 poster setting is not applied. It is selected on the rhs.

Many years ago I was stationed at RAF Lakenheath, bought a BRG MGB direct from the factory, and had to learn to drive on the "right" side of the road.  So this would explain my confusion to the reference to the "left hand side" of the screen shot.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.   Embarrassed

What I think I was doing wrong was using the zebra button on the THUMBNAIL to add a CUSTOM POSTER print size to the queue.  No matter what I did with this procedure, I always got the 5x2 or whatever and no blue line around the PREVIEW image (on the left hand side Smiley ). 

So I just tried clearing the preview, then selecting a CUSTOM POSTER size with the zebra button on the bottom of the PREVIEW panel.  Then I just clicked on the + button on the thumb to add the image and it was automatically added as a 3x1 poster.   et voilą, the correct custom print panel shows the red 3x1 in the upper left corner.

Apparently, all zebra's look the same to me, now I think I can tell them apart, or at least get them fed in the correct order.

Yes, Qimage has many ways of doing things, including allowing people like me to find multiple ways of getting things mangled.  Wink

I can now go on to find something else to get wrong...   heh-heh

So one more time, thank you Terry.

--George
