Re: QImage - Why Print Sharpening Is An Added Benefit

I am not saying to let QI apply any auto sharpening to the stored image (unless you elect that) but just that it can make the print appear closer to the display during the print process. The degree and sharpening type is in the preferences settings. No USM type sharpening is applied in the print process. QImage does pull parameters from the print driver and perhaps that contributes to the sharpening parameters. Any print process sharpening is optional and algorithms are selectable. From viewing the results I'd say that it is discriminate in how much and where it is applied.

If you wish to adjust the image itself before printing that is in the image editor section. You can choose USM or this new process, radius, strength, and also engage tone selected application processing for both. This new process does not present halo effects unless set in a very extreme position.
