Just downloaded a trial version and I think it is a great program. I did some printing and found that the images were further sharpened by Qimage. Some other forum's member mentions that it is best to let Qimage does all sharpening and save the efforts of sharpening in Photoshop, etc.

However, if I don't sharpen ahead of time, how would I know the end results from Qimage if the sharpness is what I wanted? In other words, if I sharpen all my pics in PP, then turn off the sharpening features in Qimage, then I can be sure what the quality is when the pics get printed.

Can someone shed some lights of how this workflow should be in regarding to sharpening? thanks

I have an article here at Steve's that goes over these points:


The bottom line is that you want to sharpen the image itself (the original, before any resampling) so that it looks as sharp as it "should" look at 100% zoom. At that point, sharpness is correct on screen so all you have to do is set the final print sharpening in Qimage so that you get a print that looks as sharp as its screen counterpart.
