Did you know…

ImagePrint preview size

Most users know that ImagePrint always “soft proofs” its display, guaranteeing the preview you see on screen will match your printed output.  However, while colors are accurate, you may find that the on screen image is too small or doesn’t show enough detail to accurately represent the final print.  Did you know that ImagePrint offers two ways to increase the details of its displayed images?  By setting a different preview resolution, or by using our “hi-resolution” view.

To set a different preview size, choose Preferences from the ImagePrint menu (Mac) or View menu (Windows).  In the General section, change the “Preview Size” to a higher value.  The default is 512, but you can increase it all the way to 1536.  The next time you open an image after changing the setting you should see a sharper preview.

Even with a maxed out preview resolution, you may find that the on screen image still isn’t detailed enough. To see a “really” detailed view, you can view the soft proofed image in a high resolution window that shows all the detail of the final print. Just right click the image (or Control-Click if you’re a single button mouse user) and choose “High Resolution” from the menu that appears. The image will appear in its own window, complete with a toolbar that let’s you zoom in on any part of it, allowing you to soft proof the image in all of its high resolution glory.

    Thanks for your note on preferences. I have not used it since upgrading, and it is a help.
