Removing or changing color tags on images
« on: August 10, 2009, 07:15:35 PM »
Hello

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to either remove or change the color tag that I have allocated to an image.

Can someone guide me please.   Thank you.....Iain

Iain,

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to either remove or change the color tag that I have allocated to an image.

Just set the Color Class to 'None'.  You can do this by clicking on the Color Class bar at the bottom of the thumbnail (in the Contact Sheet) and choosing the 'None' item.

HTH,

-Kirk

Hi Kirk

Thanks for the reply.

This is what I thought, however, when I do this nothing happens.  The color always stays there. 

It seems that once I allocate a color, whatever color I allocated cannot be changed or removed.  Ideas?  Thanks....Iain

What version of Photo Mechanic are you running?  What OS do you run it on?  What file format are the images that you're working with?

Please get version 4.6.1 and the problem should be fixed.

Thanks Kirk.  I did not realize there had been an update - I spend quite a bit of time away and updates sometimes get behind. I'll get the newer version & see how it goes....Iain
