Hi!

I just tried the latest version of Qimage and now I havea question concerning sharpening method. I normally use PK sharpener (PKS) to sharpen the picture before printing on my Epson 2100/2200. Yesterday I tried the default setting in Qimage and did not sharpen with PKS. The picture came out way oversharpened, in my opinion that is. Has anyone tried different settings in Qimage and compared the result with image sharpend by PKS?

What method is recommended, Sharpen for output in PS with PKS or only use Qimage Smart Sharpen?

It also looked like Qimage boosted the contrast a bit, is it so? Is it possible to turn off all image adjustments in Qimage? If so, where is this done?

Rgds,

Jonas

Just click "Prints", "Print Interpolation" and move the sharpening slider to the left a notch or two. The sharpening in Qimage is set by default to produce the best results on your "average" printer. If you feel it is too sharp on your particular printer, just adjust the slider.

Thanks for the answer.

What about the contrast, does Qimage make any adjustments? If it is, can they be turned off?

Qimage makes no adjustments to contrast.
