Welcome to 2014 (Overview)

Qimage Ultimate 2014 comes with some major improvements and new pricing for 2014.  UI improvements reduce eyestrain while making controls more readable, and new image databasing tools allow you to add user descriptions to any folder, album, or photo, with the ability to search those descriptions to locate important photos and events.  Entering user descriptions couldn't be easier: just browse to a folder and your thumbnails are displayed automatically.  If you would like to enter a description for that folder, simply type the description under the folder name on the main window.  It's as simple as that!  Want to enter a description for individual photos?  Click the small "i" button on any thumbnail and enter your description.  The "i" turns blue, letting you know a description exists for that thumbnail.  Hold your mouse over any blue "i" indicator on any thumbnail to see the description, or click to change.

These non-invasive tools allow you to enter data and search your existing photo folders without being forced to fumble with clumsy "collections".  If you already have your photos stored in sensible folders by event, date, subject, etc. and you don't need the new data tools: simply access your existing folder structure immediately.  If you'd like to supplement your existing photos (or locations) with user descriptions, just enter them as you go.  No clumsy data workflows required: no "importing" or "syncing" necessary and no new hoops to jump through just because you want to be able to enter and search descriptions!

Oh, and the 2014 pricing?  With all these improvements, you'd think we increased the price.  But we didn't!  Regular price is now $74.99 with $5 off for trying the demo, so you can get Qimage Ultimate for $69.99 by ordering from the trial!

Qimage Ultimate 2010 Releases
Version Released Priority Description
v2010.127 10/15/10 Low v2010.127 fixes a bug related to thumbnails not updating after using the blemish tool on raw photos via the batch editor.
v2010.126 10/13/10 Low v2010.126 fixes some minor glitches on the image editor preview window and a few other windows/dialogs.
v2010.125 10/06/10 Med v2010.125 fixes a bug that was causing v2010.124 to not copy the AWB setting properly across multiple raw photos.
v2010.124 10/05/10 Low v2010.124 includes an AWB option on the raw refine dialog: check AWB to allow Qimage to do its own automatic white balance calculation based on image data.  This version also improves visibility of the raw refine dialog on low resolution displays.
v2010.123 10/04/10 Low v2010.123 includes the following:
  • Raw highlight recovery: A highlight recovery option has been added to the raw refine dialog: clicking once on a tile in the exposure grid exposes for that area of the image as always, but now you can click a second time on the same tile to recover maximum highlight detail in the selected area!
  • User sizeable Flash Card Copy/Move dialog: The Flash Card Copy/Move dialog can now be sized taller to accommodate more (visible) rows in the operations table.
  • Other improvements: This version also improves some EXIF info/display dialogs.
v2010.122 09/29/10 Low v2010.122 includes the following:
  • Single raw HDR: The raw refine dialog now includes a significantly improved fill light and a new "HDR" slider.  To create high dynamic range photos, simply expose for the highlights when you take your raw photo and then when refining your raw in Qimage Ultimate, add enough fill to brighten the shadows.  Then simply drag the "HDR" slider to the right to recover any lost detail in the highlights by compressing the dynamic range.  By operating only the fill and HDR sliders, its easy to create beautiful HDR photos from a single raw exposure!  In many cases (when dynamic range isn't extreme), single raw HDR photos produce better results than many people are achieving with multiple exposures.  Note: the fill light in both the raw refine dialog and the (non raw) image editor have been improved and may show slight differences from prior versions.  Please double check for proper fill and exposure prior to printing photos when fill light was added in previous versions of Qimage/Qimage Ultimate.
  • Fixes and improvements: Fixed some minor bugs and made some slight improvements to some windows and dialogs.

v2010.121 09/15/10 Low v2010.121 adds two new features related to emailing photos and managing photo albums:
  • Emailing photos: Added the ability to send original photos along with any filters via email.  Simply select thumbnail(s) and then right click and select "Send Via Email".  The new option "Send Original Files - don't convert" will attach the selected photos along with any Qimage raw refinements and (editing) filters that belong to those photos.  This feature is useful when you want to email original photos without converting them to JPEGs, particularly when the recipient owns Qimage and may benefit from your Qimage editing and refinements.
  • Albums: When an album is opened via the "Open Album" button above the thumbnails, a prompt will appear asking if you would like to open the album or the folder IF the album only contains one full folder of images.  This is useful when opening albums created via the "Flash Card Copy/Move" process since it makes finding single download folders easier.
v2010.120 09/14/10 Low v2010.120 fixes a bug related to the new date sorting found in versions 118 and 119.
v2010.119 09/12/10 Low v2010.119 further improves thumbnail sorting by date to account for fast/continuous shooting.
v2010.118 09/10/10 Low v2010.118 improves thumbnail sorting by date to account for fast/continuous shooting.
v2010.117 09/07/10 Med v2010.117 includes smoother operation of the image editor preview window plus a fix for the raw refine window occasionally locking up on some systems.

  • Tone targeted sharpening: New selective sharpening technique allows you to sharpen/soften only certain subjects in the photo simply by using an eyedropper.  Click for details.
  • UI refinements: Improved the open/close behavior of the Print Properties panel and enhanced the hover-info that shows when hovering the mouse over a print on the preview page.
v2010.105 08/07/10 Low v2010.105 increases precision to 0.1mm when sizing/positioning in metric mode and adds some minor UI improvements.
v2010.104 08/04/10 Low v2010.104 now includes the raw cache folder when migrating application data.
v2010.103 08/03/10 Med v2010.103 includes the following:
  • Raw thumbnail building: New dual stage thumbnail builder builds raw thumbnails much faster.  Start working with your raws and create print jobs right away while Qimage Ultimate builds its raw cache invisibly in the background!
  • Build thumbs/cache for entire folder trees: Simply browse to a folder and click "Thumb Builder" from the top menu and select "Build all thumbs/cache" and Qimage Ultimate will build thumbs/cache for all images in the current folder and all subfolders.  This is a great way to start a thumb/cache build to ensure you don't have to wait when navigating to new folders.  Progress of the build is shown above the thumbnails and you can even navigate away from the thumb/cache building to another folder or even close Qimage Ultimate if you don't want to wait for the build to finish.  To resume building the tree of thumbs/cache, just open the saved album "Thumb Build" with the date/time you started the build.  Qimage Ultimate will pick up right where it left off, and will continue down the tree until it is finished!
  • Thumb/cache management: Added new options under "Utilities", "Manage Thumbs and Raw Cache" to help users manage the files that are thumbed or cached by Qimage Ultimate.
  • Fixes: Fixed some minor bugs and occasional error messages.
v2010.102 07/28/10 Low v2010.102 fixes some idiosyncrasies related to when/where the Print Properties panel opens.
v2010.101 07/27/10 Low v2010.101 includes the following:
  • Bug fixes: Eliminated some pop-up error message that could occur while using the full page editor such as "index out of bounds" and "cannot focus" popup messages.
  • Print properties (size) popup: Improved the controls found on the "Print Properties" auto-popup panel such as the ability to scroll through sizes with the mouse wheel plus tool button improvements.
  • Faster raw thumb building: Improved thumbnail building (and Lightning Raw caching) speed for raw photos by 15% to 25%.
v2010.100 07/24/10 N/A v2010.100 is the initial release of Qimage Ultimate!
