Here in Italy remains only good food and wine. All the rest is going nuts.   Sad

Should I mail a good bottle of Barbera from Piemont?   Grin

That's right. So there is no magical zoom option to use the maximum area for the preview. Can I put this feature on the to-do list for Santa Claus?

Nowadays a screen resolution of 800 x 600 is for Smartphones... I'm working with 1920 x 1200 on a old NEC 2690.

With the Full Page Editor I get always a lot of empty real estate on a 27" monitor. Is it possible to maximize the preview of the printed area?
Maybe this is also related to the printer driver? Our printer is a 24" HP Z3100, the paper format at this example is set to 16x24" landscape.

Thanks from the BugInspector.   Wink
7  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Dot Gain 15% - Error message in Soft Proof on: October 11, 2011, 07:39:51 AM
We are printing a series of scanned paper pinhole prints from clients. The assigned profile, probably from the scanner, is Dot Gain 15%. Clicking the soft proof in Qimage results in the following error message:
"Qimage has encountered a corrupted or incompatible ICC profile while processing the file: xxxxx.jpg
Please check the ICC profiles associated with your images, monitor, and printer to be sure that they are valid RGB profiles."

The printer is a HP Z3100, and the paper and monitor profiles are loaded in Qimage, so the problem is with the profile Dot Gain 15% of the greyscale print.
Actually the images are post processed in Photoshop with ProPhoto RGB, but I'm just curious why do I get the error message checking the greyscale image directly in Qimage?
8  Technical Discussions / Cameras / FINEPIX REAL 3D W3 + Viewer FinePix REAL 3D V1 on: May 31, 2011, 06:30:12 AM
Anybody has the 3D tools from Fuji? I'm interested in some comments about the Viewer FinePix REAL 3D V1. We have an exhibition project with prints for a gallery, and I would like to add the viewer FinePix REAL 3D V1 to show some of the locations and objects of the prints also in a 3D viewer, that is visible and useable without the glasses that are used in the cinema to view 3D. Since Mike Chaney has included some options for the Fuji 3D format in Qimage, i suppose that somebody on the forum is using the Fuji Finepix Real 3D W3 together with its viewer Finepix Real 3D V1.
9  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / RAW processing: How to use DCP color profiles from X-Rite Colorchecker? on: May 01, 2011, 08:17:54 AM
Doing reproductions of artwork like paintings, sometimes on location under different light conditions, specific camera-/lens profiles created on the fly with  the X-Rite Colorchecker are a great time saver for the conversion of the file from raw to tiff in Lightroom. The final step is printing with Qimage.

To do the same work with the raw converter of Qimage is it possible to use or specify a certain DCP color profile for a batch of images in the profile folder of Qimage? Maybe the DCP profile can be converted into a ICM profile for using it in the profiles folder of Qimage.

For example with the dcpTool the DCP profiles can be converted to XML, maybe this data can be used for a specific color profile in Qimage:

Thanks Mike, the next big print session is planned so I will try to find my way through the Qimage Ultimate parameter settings.
12  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Floating Text: Alignment with guide lines to the ruler? on: December 26, 2010, 11:17:03 AM
But Qimage Ultimate is on a fast track development cycle with the highest level of innovation - so we are at the safe side. Let's wait for the next development cycle!
13  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Floating Text: Alignment with guide lines to the ruler? on: December 18, 2010, 07:16:40 AM
Another example: Is it possible to position the text (centered vertical) to a precise distance (green line) from the image border? Maybe there is an option in Qimage how to define this distance?
14  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Floating Text: Alignment with guide lines to the ruler? on: December 17, 2010, 05:44:20 AM
With all the new Ultimate users there should be some resources to solve the problem of precise text alignment. Mike?  Wink

Seems that I'm the only one with the need for exact text positioning....   Shocked
