I have abandoned trying to print from Lightroom and have reverted to QImage Pro. It was only when I scanned the same image printed to the same size using QImage and Lightroom that the difference really leapt out. In Lightroom I used medium sharpening for the 5.5" x 3.5" print as recomended by Martin Evening in "The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book". Here is the full image for reference: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) While here is a scanned section of the 5.5" x 3.5" print as produced by Lightroom Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) While here is a scan of the Qimage Pro print Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) Both prints were made using a Canon iP8500 printer on Ilford Galerie Classic Pearl paper. The only option I can see for improving the Lightroom print is to use a High sharpening setting. (I can't do that at the moment as I have no paper - it should be delivered in a few days.) Anyone got any other ideas for improving the print quality in Lightroom?
