Now that C1Pro has a plugin Ui how about a QI plugin.  Unlike LR which has a relatively competent print function C1Pro is in dire need of QI.  Is this a possibility?

A while ago I had problems with FastStone and black thumbnails.  I can't remember the details - one camera but not another, etc. It occurred a couple of times and on one occasion it was linked to JPEGs that had been edited in Qimage.  The "owner" of FastStone asked for copies but couldn't duplicate the problem.  However, updating my video driver seemed to be the cure.

Hi Sandy

Yes, it must be something on my system but it is strange that it only effects Qimage conversions.  I get a black jpg even if i do not carry out any editing operations.

I am running Win 7 64bit on a Quad core AMD with 8Gb ram.

It is very frustrating as FastStone is my default viewer.  I will try installing FastStone temporarily on my laptop, if it does not complain about already being installed on my desktop, and see if it happens again.

One anomaly that I would like some one to confirm is that the converted jpg could not be viewed in FastStone my usual photo viewer program.  It simply showed as a completely black image although file size and EXIF info could be read???
Gee, FastStone is usually pretty good.
Is that happening to any JPG you made or only that one?
Did you embed some weird color profile into the JPG that perhaps Faststone doesn't read?

Can you email the jpg to me?    wathree.ssz@verizon.net

I love mysteries!

Fred

Appreciate the offer Fred.  I have emailed you a problem jpg, and yes all jpg's converted with FastStone show as totally black.

I will try reinstalling FastStone to see if that helps, although it is reading all other formats including .psd..

Thanks

Ian

So, this may be a bit basic but, how do you simply convert a raw to a jpg or tiff in QIU and end up with the jpg as if I had exported from Lightroom?  I can print to file but the photo is then placed on paper and if the paper size is not exactly the same aspect ratio as the cropped photo I end up with a jpg file that has white borders. 

Ian,
It's all in getting used to something by using it more often.
You wish to make a jpg from a RAW. There are many ways, but the easiest for me is to simply place the Raw in the queue, right click on the image. (Right clicks always give a menu)
Select Convert Image.
See my screen snap. This will create a top quality JPG. 
I am not sure if you have cropped the image, so for the moment, turn auto crop off, or uncheck the box in the Convert image dialogue box that says Honor Crops.


Fred

Thanks for taking the time to reply Fred and you are correct about using the program more will help.  I just was stuck at the beginning Smiley  I was looking in the menu bar for a convert to jpg, or export command.  Right clicking on the thumbnail did not show the convert command but putting the file in the print queue worked fine.

I have used QI for many years but only to print, which it does superbly, but struggle with the interface at times.

Yes, you can upgrade but a clean install is usually better.

If you have your data on a separate partition or disk to the OS (recommended) then a clean install is relatively painless and appears to take around 30 min for Win 7.
