I need to look at this further.  May I post the message from me in the meantime, referring back to you?

Hang on a sec. what do you mean the topic appears on the tig but the text does not?   Oh, I see.   please forgive me and the TIG for this error.  It looks like certain email programs are confusing the TIG's filtering.  Here I go, posting it for now.

How should the transfer service account for the film being shrunk?  Is there a mathematical method to adjust for shrinkage and/or a possible distorted image?  Or does such an adjustment have to be done visually, subjectively?
