I'm a fairly new user of Qimage, and so far mostly used it just for simple printing. I'm amazed at how good prints look from Qimage on my Canon i960. The sharpening looks excellent!

As I learn more about Qimage, I wonder if it would be a good idea to use Qimage interpolation/sharpening when preparing shots for sharing on the web (I use 640x480). I could just print to a .jpg file with default hybrid sharpening of 5? Why would I want to use unsharp mask sharpening when Qimage seems to be so much easier/better?

Thanks for any suggestions. I just want my shots to look their best on the web.

You have a couple of options. One would be to print to file, but that is generally meant for preparing prints for a lab. If you want to sharpen, I'd suggest using an unsharp mask filter in Qimage's batch filter. That might be more appropriate for creating web images and unsharp mask is essentiall what Qimage is doing when it prints anyway: it's just a "controlled" unsharp mask that is tailored for the print size, original image size, and other factors.
