I do have a question for you.  before I go insane ! LOL

When I first started working on several projects for different areas. My Co-worker asked me to work on one area called Cascade Creek Area. It is in Colorado, USA

So back then I was starting to learn how to use your software... and load them and the photos was aligned ....

Now fast forward,  My co-worker has retired and I promise him that I would come back and fix this Cascade Creek Area

So it has been a while since I put it on hold.  I worked on it but it does not overlay great and some markers on the photo shift a bit..

Now I am back on it again and review each marker and photos...

I realized that there are a few black and white photos that are mixed in darker and brighter.

The Brighter photos are difficult to read and I was wonder if it is possible me to reset it again with the update paths ?

What  I mean is that if I have a Photoshop and I have a few bright photos and open it in Photoshop and fix it and save it as the same as raw photos.

Will that update the fixed photos from Photoshop in the Metashape that I save as before ?

Do I need to right click on these photos and  check or Change paths to update them ?

I tried the Adjust Color Levels but no luck....

Do you have any suggesting for this black and white ?

Hello PROBERT1968,

If you replace the original images (under the same filenames), there's no need to use Change Path option to fix the paths. To update the thumbnails, remove them by right-clicking on the chunk's label and choosing Remove -> Remove Thumbnails option.

To modify the image brightness via Adjust Levels command you should select the images, that require such correction, in the Photos pane, choose Adjust Levels command from the context menu, then modify value in "Average" field, where the value means the % from original.
