    A few free macros - tested in AFP 1.6 & 1.7 Beta

    Timber - The only way I can get the photos to turn to black and white is by double-clicking the macro with then runs twice. Are you doing that by mistake? I have attached before and after photos to show the results I get each time with just a click.

    Hi railroader124 - apologies for my late reply. I see that MEB has given good advice and, hopefully, you should now have the macros up and running?

    Hi Timber, apologies for the late reply. I have been unable to replicate the problem, so far, on my own photos and each time I use the macro the colours are retained. Have you tried carrying out an HSL adjustment to see if that brings the colour back? I will try a few more photos in the meantime but, to date, they have all retained the colour.

    2019 A4 Calendar

    Thank you PaulEC for the two publisher templates. I have managed to use (after much trial and error) both to produce a current calendar for 2019 (a month per page) using my own photos and event information. It was a good way to start finding my way around Publisher - my first attempt in fact. File attached will show the result for January 2019 starting with the P1 version. Because my photos are in 3:2 aspect ratio this meant a large gap between the adjusted picture frame and the monthly details and it took me a while to find out how to adjust the size of the monthly details and how to fill new details in the day squares but I got there so thank you again. The photo used appears to be quite noisy but zoom to full page and it looks fine and it prints fine too - might be something to do with Acrobat Reader. January2019.pdf
  5. I've been playing around with writing some macros and have decided to share six of them. 1-4. Turn your pic. into a presentation A4 photo with a white canvas border having room to enter text beneath and a thin black border around the pic. to make it stand out. Four options to cover Landscape or Portrait for both 3:2 aspect ratio and 4:3 aspect ratio as determined my your camera. 5. Alpha Channel Sharpening - gives a final delicate sharpening to your photo. 6. Colour Sketch - turn any colour photo into a 'sketch'. Final output will need to have the black level adjusted (Adjustment layer, Levels, Black Level) to suit different photos. Likely it would also work with black and white photos but I haven't tried that. Tested with AF Photo 1.6 and the beta version of 1.7. I hope they prove useful. Dennis-Photo.afmacros
