Wow, I never noticed that soft proofing option! (You can see that I am learning as I go along--ten+ years later.) Thanks for this useful bit of information, CHoffman!

Don't forget the out-of-gamut check, which I find quite useful. Use your soft proof button at the bottom, then check the gmt box to highlight the out-of-gamut areas.

I did not know anything about this! Must pursue...

Mike, this is fabulous! I get it!

Thanks so much!

Hi Liz,

For me the underlying question becomes, how would I know if any colors in my image were out of gamut? I don't know where the gamut starts and ends!
You wouldn't normally worry about it because Color Management takes care of it.

OK, so that being said, should I use Relative or Perceptual for printing my photos? Or is it irrelevant?

Thank you Fred and Terry! I had actually done some Googling so I had read articles like this, but I find the language a bit arcane. For me the underlying question becomes, how would I know if any colors in my image were out of gamut? I don't know where the gamut starts and ends!

I will probably have to bite the bullet and do some test images.

Also--re: black point compensation. I see Fred ticks that, and I never had. Is that considered the default thing to do? (As you can see, I am looking for the best "defaults"!).

Thanks again.

Thanks Fred, but I don't get it!

Hi folks,

 I recently replaced my Epson R2000, which had died, with a Canon Pro 100 (thanks for all the good advice, Fred!). I am very happy with it so far.

I have a question about the Qimage setup, however. I had been setting up the Qimage screen as shown in the attached image, grey skin. But I notice that Fred's settings, which he uploaded to another thread (black skin) are different. Can someone please explain to me the advantages of using Fred's over mine? These terms-- perceptual and relative colorimetric-- are not clear to me. Should I default to Fred's?

Thanks!

OKAY, So!

I figured out how to install the Epson driver without having the physical printer connected or even nearby, so I did, then I uninstalled Qimage again, rebooted the computer again, reinstalled Qimage, and IT WORKS! I even remembered to save the Save folder so my old jobs are in tact.

Thank for helping me along this journey!

I thought of that, but the printer is in my car, ready to be recycles, and when I tried to install the driver it wanted the printer to be connected. And I just don't feel like getting it, schlepping it upstairs, and reconnecting it. It shouldn't be necessary, should it, if I install all the Canon drivers when I get the new printer? And then if need be uninstall and reinstall Qimage?
10  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: New printer time? on: January 03, 2020, 09:30:33 PM
Ok, I uninstalled, rebooted, re-installed. Same issue persists.
11  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: New printer time? on: January 03, 2020, 09:14:57 PM
I tried, no luck. I guess I can uninstall and reinstall Qimage.
12  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: New printer time? on: January 03, 2020, 07:42:10 PM
I am thinking since I deleted Qimage's default printer, and most likely its driver, it can't open. I have a black and white printer but I don't know if Qimage knows that!
13  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: New printer time? on: January 03, 2020, 07:40:54 PM
When I try to open first it stays fixed on the loading screen then it shows an error. If I click on Normal, it shows one error, if I click on Safe, another. All screenshots attached.

Soooo, I tried one more repair based on a video by Jose Rodrigues, to no avail, so I ordered the Canon Pixma Pro 100. Meanwhile I deleted my Epson printer and all the Epson paper profiles, and now I can't open Qimage. Obviously I over deleted. What do I need to restore to open it? Or can I just assume that when I install my Canon software all will be ok?

You can have profiles made by sending printed targets for profiling.  Jose Rodriguez does a good job:

For changing print placement method, just click the print placement button under the live view on the main window (the button with the yellow text/letters on it).

Regards,
Mike

OMG I had never taken in that yellow button at all, probably because I was using a pale gray skin and the yellow was practically invisible! I changed to a darker skin and now I can see it so easily (though of course now that I know where it is I won't lose it). Thank you so much!
