Going Green with Qimage
Simply put, Qimage can save you time, paper, and ink, allowing you to spend more time shooting beautiful photos and less time in front of your computer! Photo editing software, raw conversion software, and other image management type software simply are not designed specifically for the purpose of batch printing multiple photos. While a few other packages may offer rudimentary multi-printing capability, they lack the functionality and the interface to print multiple photos efficiently! Qimage saves you time at every turn in your printing workflow from reducing paper waste through automatic paper optimization to the ability to save and recall important tasks like printer setups, layouts, or even entire print jobs while at the same time optimizing print quality and sharpness for every size photo you print. Stop wasting time playing with expensive photo editor plug-ins and manually resampling/sharpening your photos and let Qimage do it for you: all by simply clicking on the original photo and then clicking the desired print size! We're sure you have better things to do than manually calculating pixels-per-inch or applying selective sharpening via complicated plug-ins that often don't work nearly as well as Qimage's automatic routines.
If you are considering Qimage, consider purchasing the greenest Qimage of all: Qimage Studio Edition. Qimage Studio Edition has added features that save you even more time and steps in your workflow. With the Studio Edition, you can quickly view, refine, and print raw photos from your digital camera(s) without using other software! Instead of using a raw conversion tool to manually edit raw photos, convert them, bring them into a photo editor and resample/sharpen them for a particular print size, just drag your raw photos directly to the print page in Qimage and click the print button! You will be amazed at how many steps you save and the quality you get from your raw files will be comparable to or better than other specialized raw tools as Qimage simply does not compromise quality for convenience!
Everything about the Studio Edition is designed to save you time and resources. The ability to view and print directly from raw photos is just the start. The Studio Edition also offers signature/copyright stamps, ability to define up to 100 custom print sizes, and more. With the Studio Edition's hyper printing feature, all four CPU's of your quad core system will be utilized during print processing to blaze through your printing like no other application! Using hyper printing technology, Qimage can apply high quality interpolation routines, apply final print sharpening, and apply color ICC profiles faster than most other programs can do a typical "dumb dump" to the printer (a term we use to characterize what most printing software does at print time: just dump the image to the print driver and let the driver handle it). You'll also be able to print posters and wide format prints at gargantuan sizes without fear of crashing your computer or print driver due to Qimage's proprietary data management when sending information to your print driver. Where other tools choke at a 44 inch print length, Qimage just keeps going!
With the global economy taking some hard hits recently, we're all looking for ways to be more efficient in our daily lives. In addition to the time, paper, and ink savings mentioned above, Qimage will make the most of your money from the get-go! You pay one very reasonable fee for the software and you never pay again! That's right. Qimage updates and our industry leading support are absolutely free once you have paid the initial purchase price. Not only will you be able to avoid having to buy expensive plug-ins and other software to try to get a decent print, you'll also get free upgrades while other companies charge you up to half the original purchase price at least once a year just to fix bugs and add a handful of (potentially useless) features. Qimage was born in 1998 and has always offered free upgrades so there are Qimage owners out there who have been getting free upgrades for ten years and will continue to get free updates for many more! In today's economy, that is certainly something to consider and goes hand-in-hand with being "green".
