    Can keyword sets or a preset be applied during import?

    In your example, "Animal" would be the parent keyword and "Dog" , "Cat" and "Rabbit" would be children of that parent. I believe that if you apply "Dog" to a photo, then "Animal" will automatically be applied (although you may need to set your view so that you see Parent keywords as well) An...

    How can I mark a Black and White image with a coloured mark ?

    Ok - I have now got it working satisfactorily.... I had the “Treatment” set to Black and White.... I have been applying the BW02 preset at the same time that I flip the tone curve..... I changed the Treatment to “Color”, and made the images look like BW by reducing blue Saturation.... and NOW...

    How can I mark a Black and White image with a coloured mark ?

    OK... maybe this is why I can’t get it to work...... I am importing a negative image, which is a photo of a black and white negative..... when I import it I am applying a preset which I made myself which flips the tone curve..... so what appears in my Library is a black and white positive...

    How can I mark a Black and White image with a coloured mark ?

    Thanks very much John... I tried that and it wasn’t working for me.... but that is exactly what I want to do...!! obviously user error..... my images have had tone curve swapped round to make the negatives into positives....would that be a reason for not getting any colour ? If not, that’s...

    How can I mark a Black and White image with a coloured mark ?

    Thanks for your reply, but I think maybe I haven’t explained it well enough.....Each file looks like a contact sheet, with up to 12 individual images on each ..... I want to be able to mark one or more of the images on each “sheet” with a red mark....

    How can I mark a Black and White image with a coloured mark ?

    Here is the use case..... I have scanned a lot of 35mm sheets of negatives and divided them up with John Ellis’ excellent Any Crop plug-in. Now I have scanned a load of Medium Format sheets with various numbers of negatives on each page, but I don’t want to divide these....what I want to do is...

    Search,Replace, Transfer & ListView plug-ins

    Hello John - I bought the Search Replace plug-in a couple of weeks ago and, as you said you would, you have now released a new version on your website. Can you kindly tell me the process for replacing the version I have with the new version ? Thank you very much.

    Any ideas or suggestions for keywording this situation...

    John - I have looked at all the information on your website for the AnyVision plug-in and I can see how powerful and helpful it would be for a single-frame situation. However, for my purposes I think that the 3-frame crops will best suit the way I expect to use all the images after I have...

    Any ideas or suggestions for keywording this situation...

    John - thank you very much indeed for taking the trouble to show how your idea would work. My set-up is a 400mm x 300mm LED lightbox with the negative sheets sandwiched between that and a sheet of clear acrylic. I have my camera attached under my tripod , pointing directly down. I use the...

    Any ideas or suggestions for keywording this situation...

    Thank you very much for your replies and suggestions.... there is definitely some food for thought there.... I don't think I can get the negatives sufficiently well aligned to slice them into 42 individual pictures (My sheets are 6 negs across and 7 rows down) . Some of the pages contain...

    Flatbed Scanner Questions

    John - I decided to buy Vuescan anyway, as it seemed to be selling at a discounted price when I looked. I loaded it and tried a few scans with my Nikon and with my Epson flatbed and it worked fine..... THEN , I had the reply above, from Klaas which suggests that the Vuescan driver will get the...

    Thank you very much for your reply John... I thought you would probably answer (but did not want to presume) Can I just say how attentive and helpful you always are, to questions on the forum. I am going to buy the plug-ins and enjoy experimenting ! Regards

    Search,Replace, Transfer & ListView plug-ins

    I am sure the answer to this must be Yes, but I just want to be 100% sure, before I buy these 2 plug-ins as they look to be exactly what I need. I have been using the Beardy Big Note for storing reference numbers, but I realise that the extra custom fields available in the SRT plugin will suit...
