I would like to purchase Qimage but would like to know if it can directly print NEF files that have been processed in Capture NX. I think the versatility of Qimage would really be of benefit because NX's print routine isn't very good. I wanted to print a 36" long print on an Epson 2200 and had to change the file to jpg and print in photshop Elements V3.0.

It can print NEF files, but it will not see edits from Nikon Capture. Qimage will print the NEF as it was original stored and won't see the edits. Of course, if you edit the NEF's, you could always save as a TIFF and then Qimage could print the TIFF. That's what I recommend whenever you edit raw photos.

Do you save as a 16 bit Tiff? Also, how does soft proofing enter into the scenario? Do you do it in Qimage, or do you do it in Capture NX and then just save/load the Tiff into Qimage and go from there? By the way, thanks for the quick reply. Qimage has interested me for some time and I think it will be a Christmas gift to me this year and I am looking forward to trying it out.
