    I'm using Qimage under Windows for printing, but let me comment nevertheless to some of the available options on the screeen
    - I don't think that you ever need 16 bit output - 24 bit (3x8RGB) can already create 16 Mill colors, much more than the eye can differentiate. I think Canon is advertising some printer for which the driver can handle 16 bit data - o.k.
    - you should use some print resolution which the driver genuinely supports without further up - or downsampling and interpolation - 360/720dpi for Epson , 300/600 dpi for Canon and 300/600 dpi for Epson with precisioncore printheads.
    - you should test the various settings for print sharpening - too much sharpening may enhance noise or create unwanted edge effects depending on the algorithm they use.

    The image of your printed test image looks much better this way - better and more saturated colors , this shows how critical all the parameters - white balance etc are.
    I regret that I'm not familiar with Lightroom on a Mac and cannot explain why this or that setting wouldn't work. Qimage directly shows me the active print resolution in context with the selected driver settings, and Qimage delivers the data to the driver with that resolution setting. The Epson/Canon drivers are pretty poor with up/downsampling, soften and loose details, they probably use a simple (and quick) algorithm so that the drivers could run on any low end PC without much delay.

    Canon were, BUT 3D is better..
    I am very familiar with the Mac O/S, but I only print in Photoshop, I tried the 30-day free trial of Qimage, but deleted it after a few days, I found it next to useless, and I wouldn’t touch LightRoom with a badge pole, but that me...:hu

    i can print in Photoshop too but which options could increase the quality of the image and which not, something for me important is to know if the image have enough quality for print in any size, because family brings u any kind of image size and format and i need to learn for example this 3 mb image with this resolution it only can be printed in 4 X 6 cause if i print in a format 12 X 12 or 13 x 19 it will blur and see it to pixelead image.
