Interpolation type is not a conflict.  The smart driver settings eliminate potential conflicts in the driver, particularly ones that are "hidden" in obscure menus in the driver.  The difference between Fusion and Forge should be minimal (and not visible) unless you are trying to print low res photos.  So your job was saved with the "Fusion" setting and there is no real conflict with that setting.  It is also up front and very visible on the main UI as opposed to being hidden in some "extended settings" menu in the driver so that one is easy to see and change if you really want to.

Okay, that all makes sense.

Not exactly my guess, but close enough.  Grin

Thank you.

Haven't downloaded v1.26 yet, that's next, maybe the question is answered there.

Playing with the new version (.125).  Canon Pro-100.  Pulled up a 2yo job.  QU adjusted the settings automatically as outlined in the video.  Except, Interpolation was set to "Fusion", the original setting (I think), and the little dot next to it was yellow; hovering the mouse, it said "Settings may not be optimal. Click to open settings."  So if I'm not mistaken, "Forge" is the new favored interpolation method.  Obviously, my question is, why didn't QU change that, or at least give a bit more of a heads-up?  And is there any reason why I shouldn't change it to "Forge"?  I don't think I have any that I wouldn't want to use "Forge" with.

One more:  once the auto settings have been applied, right-clicking on the "Smart Driver Settings" icon (the "V"), the response is "PASS".  I could make a guess or two what that mean, but I haven't been wrong on anything yet this year so I'm overdue, and I'll see if I can keep my streak going  Smiley. I'll wait for an official reply.

Otherwise, appears to be a fantastic update.  I've always gone through the driver settings to be sure I haven't screwed anything up, this will save a lot of time.  So thanks.

Great stuff! Also really appreciate that you do the videos just for me with my PRO-100.  Grin

It fixed the resolution check box- I never even knew that box existed!

  • For compatible Canon and Epson printers (most newer models)*
  • Optional: various automatic features can be turned on/off.
  • Automatic control of driver color management settings: say goodbye to double profiling!
  • Prevents driver scaling: say goodbye to the driver printing the wrong size prints!
  • Prevents large format Canon printers from lowering PPI with larger page sizes.
  • Ensure highest quality by disabling auto-enhancement features that interfere with Qimage's optimizations.
  • And much more.
  • See the video: https://youtu.be/4B1CGRnKA6k
  • * v2022.126 adds compatibility for a few more Epson printer models

I will try to help.
First of all the monitor, has nothing to do with the print; UNLESS, you filtered it lighter or darker or added color intensity or contrast because of what you saw on the monitor.
Let us assume you did not do any of that in Qimage, but merely placed the two images in the queue.
The necessary driver settings are criical though. You must have the proper selected paper chosen and the correct printer profile for that paper.
Also equally necessary is the setting in the driver to OFF for color management. See screen snap 103
The settings in Qimage should look like See screen snap 104. Note the matching paper selection and matching printer profile.
The other color change can be caused by different color space used for each image.
See snap 105. Same image two different color spaces.
Hover your mouse over each thumbnail and read the colorspace in the hot bar at the bottom of Qimage.
Hope this helps.
Bear in mind that before you print, you can unplug your monitor and plug in some old worn out cheap one, and it will not change the print at all.

I use Capture One for my workflow. I received some photos in JPG from someone who embedded the sRGB color space. I have 2 EIZO monitors both calibrated and the same model and settings. I use these monitors with Capture One. The first monitor shows it reddish while the second monitor shows it properly. In Qimage you also show it properly but on my Canon P2100 large format printer it prints out reddish like the srgb_mon1.jpg file

I cannot figure this out Huh? Huh? Huh?
