Change label colors?

Post by Tom Husband » 15 Sep 20 20:28

Some labels are green and some are orange. Is there a way to change those colors to, say blue and yellow? I have a red/green color deficiency so green and orange look the same to me. I've looked around but can't find anything.

Thanks

I assume you mean the Color Labels? Photo supreme follows the color scheme of Adobe: Red, Green, Yelliow, Blue, Purple. The shortcuts are Ctrl-1 to Ctrl-5

If you have difficulty distinguishing reds and greens then I recommend to use the colors you have less difficulty with.

Sorry I should have been more clear. I meant the colored labels for catalog labels over on the right side where they are either green or orange. If I've selected several photos and they have different keywords I get a mix a green and orange labels. These are very hard for me to differentiate.

Ah, got it now.
Looking at this site, I understand what you see and how hard it is to distinguish between orange and green
https://venngage.com/blog/color-blind-friendly-palette/

In the next build a new registry tweak is added that allows you to set a colorblind option. With that switched on, the green will become blue.

Once you get the next build installed, use this registry tweak (run it in the Tools -> Scripter)

Code: Select all

WriteToRegistry('', 'ColorBlind', 1);
To revert to default:

Code: Select all

WriteToRegistry('', 'ColorBlind', 0);

Perfect! Thanks Hert. I'm liking Photo Supreme more and more. In fact I uninstalled that other DAM app I was using.

That linked article was very interesting too.

When using Scripter is it just a matter of pasting the code and hitting Run?
edit: Looks like that's all there is to it. I just ran the script and label colors changed. What a difference. Many thanks!
