If one remains in Digital Photo Professional one can do all the B&W processing of curves, levels, tones (highlight, midtone, and shadow, software color filter effects, et al without ever taking a look at the color data - one can determine file size, resolution, choose bit depth, etc. then save or export the manipulations as tif, ps, jpg, whatever - without altering the RAW file. Hope this helps. Regards, George Lottermoser firstname.lastname@example.org On Sep 22, 2006, at 1:36 PM, B. D.
