I'm planning on proposing to my long time girlfriend in the next month and think I've finally found a diamond that will make her happy. Its from Whiteflash and I have until next week to decide whether I want to purchase it. The problem: I'm not very confident in my pricescope education on how to analyze cut and light performance images. I attached an Ideal-Scope, ASET, and H&A image in hopes that one of the very generous posters here could help me out. Please feel free to give me an honest opinion, whether good or bad. Thanks in advance!

Those are what perfect images look like. I assume you must be looking at an ACA. That's an outstanding choice! I have ACA diamond stud earrings and they are beautiful stones!

Light performance looks great. Is this an ACA or expert selection?

Have you decided on a setting?

It is an ACA but I was a little worried about the Ideal-Scope and H&A images not being as good as they can be. The IS image seems to be a lighter pink than those I've seen on Pricescope and Prosumer educational pages and there are white V's at the tips of the arrows (may be because its not "painted"--still not entirely sure what that means). The H&A doesn't seem to be perfectly symetrical with some of the hearts possibly being smaller than others (maybe not even a true hearts and arrows). The diamond costs a lot of money (to me) and I was hoping someone with a very critical eye could tell me if its one of the best available.

The idealscope is relative to the rest of the image, yours are perfect. The 'Vs' are supposed to be there. The H&A might be a slightly rotated image. Ask WF about. It certainly won't be anything you can see with your eye.
