Hi, I do not print a great deal even though I have Qimage, found it easier for setting up to print single images than Lightroom. Anyways is there a template available to print a panorama on an Epson Photo R1900? I only have the one roll of Epson paper (8.3" x 32.8') to try printing panoramas and don't to be honest want to stumble along and waste paper as I go.
Once I get the hang of it as I understand it I can increase the paper up to 13".
Thankyou for any and all advive.

Russ,
Since most panos have a unique size based on the number of pixels in the horizontal and the vertical, a template (which you can make yourself if you insist on it) is not the way to go.
Set you page dimensions to User Defined Roll paper banner mode at 8.4" x however large you wish... Let's set for 30" for this example.
Now in Qimage Ultimate open CUSTOM in  the print property box.
Second selection says Speify One dimension.. The one dimension that is for sure is teh width of the roll. So type in 8.1 and a dot in "THIS IS THE SHORT SIDE"
Now put your pano image in the queue, and you can have it fill the page by turning on auto cropping, or allow it to be as large as it can be with no cropping. That depends on what is in the image and whether you mind cropping off some sky or some foreground in order to fill the 30"
One snap shows crop off. The other crop on... see a few clouds missing in crop on

I forgot to mention that you can customize the crop in the Page Editor
Pull it down if you want all the clouds, or up if you want the foreground and fill your print sheet

Hi, Sorry still struggling with this.
My printer R1900.
Paper for testing, Epson 100mm (approx 4") x 10mtr.
I tried to follow this part under user defined in the printer driver setup 'Set your page dimensions to User Defined Roll paper banner mode at 8.4' but the printer/system tells me that to put the dot (.) ie 3.5 is not an acceptable character so if I just put in 4   it changes to 800  when I tap or use the Tab key to go into the Height box and yes I have the Unit box set for inches. (I maybe a Brit but I am still an old one and can work Feet and Inches faster than the stupid metric system)
I did try to print an image on the paper via Qimage and I followed what I no are the correct instructions to do it (video on youtube) but all I got was an image approx 1" wide not 3.5 X 24" long.
If I keep going with guess work I'll have a bin full of wasted photo paper so thank you for anymore advice that may come forward.

Let me download the 1900 driver and install. I was using an R 2000 driver to work with the issue.
Maybe the 1900 does not use a (dot) and 8.3 inches would be 830
Give me a few minutes.

OK I set uping teh R 1900 driver.
That driver does not use a dot.. so the entry would be 830  by 3000

It works every time perfectly
See snaps.
I also found the EURO driver. I will try that if it will run here

Russ it is confusing, but I think they are trying to say... the inches are in (.01) hundredths, so 830 would be 8.30 inches

So are you all OK Now?

Hi, well tried it all and after one box of paper came to this.
Got to be doing something wrong but cannot see it.
Tried putting in 400x800, 800x400, 4x8, 8x4.
Ticked the crop box as if I don't it asks if I want the image in two parts.
Thanks but for me just not working.

When Qimage asks if you want your printin two parts, it is telling you that the print size you are asking for is larger than the paper size you selected.

Russ,
Here's my email address.  wathree.ssz@verizon.net
Send me an email, and I will make a video and send that to you.
You can follow it better.
What was your print size?

Fred
