It is merely for technical reasons that I don't use it on my office 
computer yet :-) (it's still qt3, no qt4). I've installed 1.4 on my 
laptop and played around with it a bit this weekend. But it doesn't have 
not enough space on its HD for all the photos for this project, so I 
choose to start with 1.3.3.

Now that I have made a selection for the book, I could copy only those 
and transfer the whole thing on my laptop, but what would that be good 
for? Is there  anything 1.4 could do better in this case?

By the way, I just got an answer from the hotline of the printing shop, 
they say 100 - 150 dpi would give sufficient results for the book, so 
that's good news...
