Qimage update released|
(Friday, April 1, 2005 - 18:54 EST)
Mike Chaney, author of popular Windows imaging utility Qimage, just emailed us to let us know he's released a new version (v2005.200) with several new features.
If you're not already familiar with Qimage, we'd have to rate it as one of the most consistently useful (and frequently improved) shareware imaging programs we've come across. We use it regularly ourselves, and its features span the gamut from printing (the original forte and reason behind the program's existence) to image editing, filtering, batch-processing, management, comparison, slide-shows and a whole lot more besides.
Updates in Qimage v2005.200 include:
A feature-limited demo of Qimage can be downloaded for a 30-day trial, and the full program can be purchased for $44.95.
- Direct email support: v2005.200 offers the ability to send multiple images via email by opening your email client and preparing a message with the images already attached. Images may be selected by selecting multiple thumbs and right clicking "Send via Email" or by using the "Create email/web copies" function from the queue.
- Text alignment: Center, left, and right justify buttons are now available on the floating text dialog.
- Sticky crops: Qimage now remembers your crops automatically when you move/change the crop using the cropping tool in the page editor. Need to adjust the crop to get the best 8x10 of an image called "wedding_011.jpg"? Simply select that image in the thumbnails, click the 8x10 button, open the page editor and drag the crop to where you want it. Qimage will remember that crop every time you add "wedding_011.jpg" at a size of 8x10! Need to print some 4x6 prints of the same photo? No problem. Add another copy at 4x6, adjust the crop on that, and Qimage will remember your 4x6 crop too (separately from your 8x10 crop)! It's all automatic: nothing new to learn. Just adjust your crops as you go and forget about it. When you go back into Qimage a month later to do some reprints, the same 8x10 and 4x6 crops that you previously identified will be recalled automatically.
