A year or so ago I bought Qimage Ultimate for printing. I was using either PSE9 or PictureWindowPro (!) for PP, and after getting the profiles sorted have been pretty happy with the results (Qimage does have soft proofing).
A few months later I bought LR4, which of course comes with its own printing module. Again, after getting the profiles sorted it seems to give good results, and though they seemed a little different from Qimage, I did find it quite hard to decide which I preferred.
I can't decide whether to persist with Qimage or cut over to LR.
Qimage seems to have more options and flexibility, and I understand the basics. However, obviously it's not integrated so I have to export from LR to use it, and is a very different user interface.
LR would allow me to just use the one product for the great majority of my workflow, and there are probably lots of features embedded that I haven't explored.
At some point I will have to do the work myself, and do some proper comparisons, but that is a pretty expensive process in paper and ink - and there is obviously no point in doing it at all unless I use my target paper and ink.
I'd be grateful for any comments, observations or advice.
I should add that I am an amateur, and printing up to A4 for my own enjoyment, and occasionally for family and friends.
Thanks for any ideas,
