  1. Photo printing, and sharpening

    06 April 2015 - 05:46 PM

    hello All,

    I would like to understand what is the correct work flow for photo printing with Gimp.

    At the moment, I print my photos in a Window$ environment.
    I prepare an unsharpened, full size TIFF, and print it directly with Qimage for Windows.
    Qimage has a clever, effective algorithm that will scale AND sharpen the image to the correct print size, doing all the pixel destructive math on the fly, and only once.
    The results are truly amazing.

    The problem is... I want to print on my Linux box.
    If I sharpen the image in Gimp, it will be scaled to a different size when printing, which is BAD, because scaling is pixel destructive, and sharpening must be the LAST thing you want to do.
    I tried Turboprint, but there is no option to manage sharpening while printing...

    Any advice will be very, very welcome.

    Ciao,

    -Gian
