1  Mike's Software / Qimage Studio Edition / Re: Settings not saved on: September 14, 2014, 07:22:17 PM
Sorry I did not get back earlier Fred but I have been away. However your solution worked fine, although I did have some difficulty in uninstalling qimage. What did not help was that I had it in two locations.
Thanks a lot for your help. Much appreciated
regards
Bill
2  Mike's Software / Qimage Studio Edition / Settings not saved on: September 11, 2014, 08:04:38 PM
I have been using Qimage for many years without any problems. However, when I try to shutdown I am now getting a dialogue box saying that Qimage settings could not be saved. When I exit without saving settings, on the next startup it says that Last start could not be saved and Write access denied. I tried a reinstall but this did not make any difference.
Has anyone any ideas what could be wrong?
Thanks
Bill

Terry,
The memory check from qimage help is still at 1564 -221-1569.

Yes Terry you can set the brightness to a specific number with the color monkie. I tried 120 but this still gave a slightly dark print. For my Dell monitor I found that 100 worked best which was equivalent to 10% brightness on the screen adjustment.

Hi Persio,
I am no expert but I have experienced a similar problem when I used XP. I purchased a color monkie and the thing I noticed most about the difference between the windows calibration and the color monkie was the screen brightness. I think that the widows calibration tell you to set the screen at its default brightness. I found this to be far too bright. When I set the screen brightness to 10% instead of 100% and then calibrated I got a much better corelation between screen and printer. My screen is a Dell 19 inch Ultra Sharp.
I have recently upgraded to Windows7 and after running with my XP Colour Management settings I found no great difference between XP and Windows 7 print output.
I Know this issue it is a source of much frustration, so I hope this helps.
regards
Bill

Thanks Ray,
I may have a result! After reading the article I reduced the available RAM for photoshop to use and moved the scratch disc from my c drive to another hard disc. When I printed a 15 inch long print at the max resulution the maximum memory usage shown on the meter was 86% and the print completed fully.
I'm not sure whether what i have done was completely logical but in this case it seems to have worked.
Many thanks to you,Terry and Fred for your patience and advice - what would we do without folk like you!
regards

Thanks Fred,
My memory meter is running at 30% with no programmes open. I can increase the memory to 4gb but I had read somewhere that for 32bit windows, 3gb was the maximum windows could handle. Is this the case or will I get some real benefit from increasing to 4gb.
Thanks for your help

Yes, I could go to 4gb

Thanks Ray, I have tried your suggestion and the print almost made it but ended about an inch short. It seems that this is memory related but I do not know how I can allocate more memory to printing with qimage.

Thanks for your help Fred/Terry,
I  run 2 printers on a network. The HP is directly wired to my computer with a USB cable and the other is an epson printer attached by a LAN cable. When I analyse the current settings as Terry suggests the readings are Start 1564MB, Addl  219MB, Now  1566MB.

The image size is 4575pix x 2767 pix @ 300px/inch. My computer has 3gb of ram with my discs less 50% full.

Thanks Fred,
As suggested I reduced the resolution from 1200ppi (max) to 600 (high) and this has provided a full print. Whilst I am grateful to be able to obtain a print, will the overall print quality suffer if i retain this setting for all my future prints?
Thanks again for your help

Thanks Fred,
I clicked on Reset Printer Settings and Reset ALL Programe Settings.
The print cuts off without completing the print. I tried it again and it only printed 8 inches before ejecting. I have also printed from Photoshop CS4 and the print was OK.

Reset Qimage but still the same result. The print should be 15 inches long but cuts off at 11.5 inches.

Thanks Fred.
I have unchecked the Advanced Printing Features box and the dialogue box shows raw but the same result. In fact it seems like the amount printed has dropped fron 80% to 60%. I also disconnected the printer and reconnected prior to trying this.
regards
Bill
