Since Mike gave his permission for us to download the videos from Utube, I thought I would share how I do it.  First go to the internet site that has the videos:
http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage-u/learn.htm
Then select the video you want by going to the "Video Large" column and right clicking on the "720P video".  Then select copy shortcut.

Go to http://keepvid.com/ and paste what you copied into the url space at the top.  Then click download.  You will then be presented with a quality screen.  I click "High Definition - 1280x720" and then click save and tell the program where you want to save the file.

Repeat for each video you want to keep on your PC.


I tried to follow the provided details but evidently there has been changes in this posted method since it has a date of:  February 22, 2011.
It would be helpful (for me and possibly others) if your method was updated to be current with present services (links) that are being referred to.
Thank You.  Vernon D rainwater  Date: 08-14-2022

Fred and Mike, I appreciate your replies.  It is good to know the new AI Feature will be effective with some of the older Epson Models such as the R800 that I mentioned.
I installed my NEW (Old Stock) R800 Printer last week that I purchased new several years ago.  Of course, I used the new cartridges in other R800 or R1800 printers a few years ago.  Mike, it is good to see that you are continuing to develop new features for use in Qimage Ultimate.
Sometimes I wonder how my photos (printed with Qimage) could be better.

Forgot to ask:  Does AI have any effect relating to having the ability to work on an individual  ( ONE Color Channel) for functions relating to Clogged Nozzles, Head Cleaning, etc.
OR -- am I mixing Printer Driver details with functions designed and built within the individual Printer(s)

Thanks and My Regards to BOTH,
Vernon....

Mike, it's such a great software program, I'm amazed it does all that it does already and so well. The problem is, with everything else to concentrate on when your formatting the images, it is so easy to forget to turn it off before hitting the print button. I thought of it more as an permanent option like the skin colors. And when the paper is $4 a sheet this can be an expensive mistake. I still consider QImage a marvel at all it does. The new version 2023.100 is fantastic.

Fred described it well so I don't need to add anything BUT the following...

The feature was carefully named: it is Driver AI, not AI Driver!  I intentionally did not name it AI Driver because that would make it sound like it is a separate driver that has AI.  Instead, I named it Driver AI so you would know that it is AI for your existing driver.  Smiley

Regards,
Mike

What effect does this have with the current Printer Drivers for our specific printers.
Will the usage of the AI driver improve current printed Photos.
In my case I have a few rather old Epson Models (R800 and R1800) plus the 3880.  Using AI, Would I get improved printed Photos with these Model(s) printers.

Mike, you picked a (Modern and Current) identification -- AI

My regards,  Vernon....

Hi Vern,
I'll try to clarify a little, but Mike will fill in better.
AI (Artificial Intelligence) is the name Mike tagged on to his latest gold nugget.
Essentially, it is simple to explain, and it works!!  The only thing is, that when you start out, you wont believe it worked, so you will peek in the driver to be sure. 
All it does, and it is amazing, is to set the settings inside your driver Automatically to the optimal settings and prevent user error.
For example: It shuts off scaling so the print size comes out as you chose. It sets Quality to its highest number (which depends on the paper selected and the DPI of the printer. It sets Color print matching to the correct setting so you cannot double profile. If you use a printer profile, then AI sets the match to OFF or NONE.  No profile, sets it to ICM.
Tons of stuff like this for all the Epsons, Canons and a few Brother printers. No HP printers as they live in a world of their own.
Will it make better prints? I think so because two items alone: Quality settings always reset to the highest even when you change paper and profiles. Two: No more scaling so when you request a size print, you get it.
.... and last item:  If you click on that blue gear wheel, you open a box where you can shut off AI if you choose by unchecking boxes.
I have 60 printer driver in my machine and except for the HPs, it works on all including R800 3880, etc

Hope this helps
Fred

Evidently this discussed AI Driver is a feature that is included in the 2023.100 release of Qimage_U and not a separate Driver for specific Brand and Models of various Printers (such as Epson 3880).  I have attempted to View and Hear the narrative of the Video but due to the size of the displayed illustrations and my lack of ability to hear normally, I get very limited usage of this or most other displayed Videos on my computer screen.

You can click on the "Page Background Color" button under the live view and change it to a shade of gray while you work... BUT you'd better remember to change it back before you print else it'll actually PRINT that color.  Wink

I hope I'm not embarrassed and the option already exists and I'm not aware of it. But I have two large screen monitors and usually use the darkroom skin in a darkened working environment. When working with 24 inch roll paper in QImage, the monitor screen is a blast of white light until the roll begins to fill up as the smaller print images are added. Or as each new page appears, the blast of white light happens. It may be helpful at times to have an option that the paper area appear as a fairly dark grey background rather pure white, with the grid lines simply a bit darker than the grey background.
Just a comment for consideration.

Does anyone have an idea for a method to achieve this 'simple' goal?

Martin,
What I do is use the built in print information print tool as shown in the screen snap.
You can place it left right ,center... and it goes in the blank margin.
If it must go on the back of the print, you would have to run the page through again flipped over.

You could always open it in Notepad and just print it from there.  Curious why you'd want to print a whole job/session file as it is a lot of info and it isn't formatted to be "human readable".

Regards,
Mike
