Can your toolset create a black and white jpg image from a color jpg?

user icon Vlasta site administrator on March 25th

Sure, open it in the editor in the menu select Adjust->Grayscale and save.

Thank you.
Is there a command line string for that as well?

user icon Vlasta site administrator on March 25th

If you have RealWorld Photos, you can go to Batch tab, select the Grayscale icon, click on Create droplet button above the box with icons and it will create a tiny .exe that can be used from command line to make pictures B&W. The .exe will only work if RWPhotos is installed though.

total rookie here- I created a highlighted pointer for cursor but it lags. Actually I can't use it and have to reboot my pc. Does anyone know what is wrong? Windows 7 64 bit

user icon Vlasta site administrator on April 1st

Strange, have you used the standard size of 32x32? In any case the cursor should have no effect on the speed of the computer.
