I am not a frequent poster but I just wanted to say that, after purchasing Qimage for I think $25 around 10 years ago and enjoying the MANY cool new features over the years, I will be buying Ultimate - even though I really don't need some of the features. Mike & Qimage are one of the two BEST developer/software combinations for customer support there are (my other favorite being Hert & Idimager). I have purchased Profile Prism and paid the annual upgrade fee (at least most years - I may have missed a couple since there are no nag screens) and I upgraded to Studio mainly to support Mike & his company. As others have said, most products completely stop support for previous versions (Adobe's policy of raw updates only being available for the current Photoshop version being the prime example). I will purchase Ultimate soon because I have received many times over what I paid for Qimage many years ago. Actually I was glad to see the new policy because I would hate to see Mike's company go belly-up due to a lack of new revenue. I hope that Mike & Qimage will be in business for many years to come.

+1 to what the OP said...even though I think I paid all of $35 for my first version of Qimage--which I bought simply because it was so nifty to be able to print multiple images neatly and compactly on one sheet of paper.  (This was before the "photo printing utility" was available in Windows.)  At the time, I don't think that I knew what interpolation meant--but since I was shooting with a Sony Mavica, I soon learned that Qimage was the only way I could print an acceptable 5x7.

I later upgraded to Pro, and some years (and several cameras) later was shopping for a raw converter when I realized that all I had to do was upgrade to Studio and just keep printing.  Like the OP, over the years I've received much more value from Qimage than the approx. $100 I've spent.  Five years ago, people looked at my prints and said, "That can't be digital."  Today, they look at my prints and say, "You printed this yourself?"

I know that I'm not the only one on this forum who has been worried about DDI Software's financial well-being.  I'm very glad to see Mike make this move.

And I will continue to make other people aware of Qimage whenever possible.  That includes my postings to other internet forums and comments I make about relevant articles or news stories.  Let's all do the same.  I want Qimage--and Mike--available for the rest of my life!
