Not sure what the issue is but whenever I use floating text, I always do a print preview first, then I tweak the text location based on the preview if I need to .

Good stuff!  Looking forward to Mike's video on actually assembling one of these.  Mike - please include provisions for us fumble-finger types.

Probably forgot to turn off the auto-crop on the ice chest.

Fred - I am more concerned about the weather warnings for you and Mike.  - Stay safe.

I use that layout all of the time. Nine 4x6s fit perfectly on a 13x19. Please attach a screenshot so we can see what you are doing and what results you are getting.

Sounds like the print driver might be switching automatically to DRAFT quality for multiple copies.

I suppose maybe it could be a full page editor option "When scrolling to a new page automatically select the first photo on the page."  But something like that would then raise other issues, such as what constitutes the first photo - again an issue for a lot of my printing where I print multiple images to a page and generally do something quite different to each.

I don't understand what the problem is.  I have done exactly what you are saying numerous times.  I often take a pattern jpeg, or monochrome photo and add extreme brightness to fade it and then lay the prints on top.  I then print these as album pages. Is there an aspect of what you want to do that I am missing?

The only reason, and the only time this may not seem to make sense is in the situation where you have only one image per page, I sometimes work like that. But think about the more typical use of QU where you have 3, 4, or even many more images arranged on a page. You have to select the image that you want to crop. Just my 2 cents.
10  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate Wish List / Re: Supersize it - please on: May 16, 2022, 03:41:22 PM
Hey Fred - Happy birthday! Mine is next week.

Your solution is pretty much what I'm doing.  What I'd like to do on this laptop is what I typically do on my moderately large screen PC, scroll through the thumbs and find the winners, losers, and maybe-what-ifs.  Screwing around a little with the display settings on the laptop, maybe can make those thumbs a little bigger.  It's only for a few weeks - I'll make it through.
11  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate Wish List / Supersize it - please on: May 16, 2022, 12:29:00 AM
I have had to temporarily (for the next few weeks) install QU on a laptop with a small screen. Even with the large thumbnails, I am struggling to review.  (my eyesight isn't as good as used to be).  With over 2000 new photos to review, I'd rather not have to go through them one by one in my normal Preview - Add to Queue mode (I don't add them, just rate them).

Any chance we could get an Extra Large thumbs option??
12  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate Wish List / Re: Thumb sorting by size/aspect ratio on: December 29, 2021, 02:56:05 AM
Just wondering, how many different aspect ratios do you normally deal with up there on Neptune?  I ask because I was thinking that another way to address this would be by filename - or maybe a filename prefix associated with each aspect ratio - then sort by file name.
13  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Page order on: October 17, 2021, 11:41:52 PM
Yes - two sided.  For matte pages I use Moab Entrada Rag Bright two sided, for PK pages I use Inkpress Luster Duo

I print photo books all of the time and have one other suggestion.  Save individual pages - or perhaps a small group of pages - as a job. Then you can print them  and assemble in any order you want.  Most of my album pages have multiple photos on them, but often, I will find that a photo I had placed in an early page, will really work or fit better later on in the book. While the cut, copy, paste will work for this, I find it much cleaner and easier to work with jobs containing between 6 and maybe 20 photos - and either 1, 2 or 4 pages - than a large job with 30 or more pages and 150 or 200 photos. I usually create a new save folder for the jobs, then name the jobs either by theme or planned page number. (or both e.g., lacrosse tournament pages 3 and 4)

Love it!  Especially the new Page Editor AKA Advance Layout Tool with the max screen capability, and the new floating text feature so that I can now see what I am doing as I do it. Also like the little down arrow to go directly to the page editor.
