Michael Chaney, author of QImage Pro has just sent me a note that he's just release Qimage Pro v12.0, here's what he has today, "This major upgrade includes a brand new, totally redesigned user interface as well as a long list of new capabilities. The new interface is designed to make better use of space while providing single click access to the most commonly used program functions."
Qimage Pro v12.0 was released today. This major upgrade includes a brand new, totally redesigned user interface as well as a long list of new capabilities. The new interface is designed to make better use of space while providing single click access to the most commonly used program functions. The list of new capabilities is too extensive to give a comprehensive breakdown, however, the following are some highlights from Qimage Pro v12.0:
Version 12.0 boasts a brand new way to create and modify your printouts. Resizing, rotation, fitting and more can be accessed via a right click on the preview page after selecting one or more prints by simply clicking on the prints on the page(s). Sizes of selected prints can be changed and even the fitting method (cropping to specific size versus fitting entire images in a frame) can now be changed on a print-by-print basis! Version 12.0 even remembers the size you selected for your prints initially so you can toggle that crop on and off and recover your initial size selection even after the crop method has been selected. There are also operational enhancements such as ability to "spawn" your favorite photo editor to edit selected thumbnails, an option to spool one printed page at a time to reduce hard drive spool space, and even a new print progress meter that shows the progress of each print as it is being spooled.
Would you believe v12.0 offers even higher print quality than older versions? We have improved the Lanczos interpolation method so that there are no artifacts, and have therefore switched the default print interpolation method to Lanczos. Using the Lanczos method and a print interpolation setting of Max, Qimage Pro will produce prints directly from your originals that are comparable to those produced by fractal resampling programs, all by simply dragging your originals to the printed page!
We have also upgraded the color management engine in Qimage Pro. As a result, you may notice a slight improvement in color accuracy when dealing with ICC profiles.
And finally, we have updated the program help and provide a new section on "Getting Familiar with Qimage Pro" where you can get a quick look at how the new interface works.
