If the monitor is too bright the correct method is to set the monitor to factory settings, then use the X Rite to calibrate the monitor at a lower luminenence value. If it does still not match the print, re-calibrate again at an even lower setting. The value depends on room lighting, eyesight etc, I use 90 cd/mē. and the colour will always be at the ICC standard.
You could also check that you are not double profiling which can lead to dark prints, and that you are using the correcr profile for the paper/printer combination.

I haven't added text for a while, and now I can't remember how to do it, I'm using v2023.

Please help!

The latest version of the iStudio software lets you create a black and white profile in the same way as a colour *one, by printing pages of coloured squares.* I've found it to work exceptionally well in producing pure black *and white prints.*. The latest version is 1.5.1, available here:



PS I've got another problem now, my keyboard is inserting random asterisks.  Sad

The problem is just with the names, the 'Description' field in Lightroom is called 'Caption' in QI.
These screenshots are from the same photo:

My rule is NEVER upgrade windows. It always causes more trouble than it's worth - new versions  of Windows are for new machines only.

Thanks, Mike, I know where they are now so it's not a big issue for me.

Where have the floating text justification settings gone?



11  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate Wish List / Re: AI resolution vs interpolation on: March 21, 2021, 10:18:22 AM
I would always use QI interpolation, as it is optimised for the exact size you are printing. Also, working with the much larger files created will always place more stress on your computer, take up storage and take longer to process.
Are they better than QI? Who knows, but if you are a QI user, I would leave it to QI.

The 'enhanced'  .dng file is the same as any other .dng file, and will open in QImage in exactly the same way as anything other raw file.

Edit, Preferences, Print and Page Formatting, Page Margins in Qimage, and enter the margins on each side to give you a 400x500mm printable area in the middle of the paper?  Then when sizing your prints, use "Fit to Page" size because you've made your "page" 400x500mm.

I think the problem with this is that the print size is 297 x 420 mm, not 400 x 500. You can't place a print that size in a 400 x 500mm page and get the corner marks at 400 x 500.
As this is a limited number of prints using canvas size in a photoshop action may be a better solution.

Ernst, the problem is with uneven borders, 10mm top and bottom and 47mm on each side. I agree that trimming first is undesirable, but in this case I think it may be the best way.

15  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Cutting/trimming lines/marks on: February 21, 2021, 06:51:07 PM

I think trimming the paper to 500 x 400 first would be my choice, it is easy to set up some sort of guide for the trimmer, and you will always have to trim the prints anyway.
