A variety of bugs were corrected in the Wallace Letters Online user interface last week by the Museum's IT team. We (and they) are aware of other bugs, such as additional spaces in the text of the pdf versions of transcripts, and these will be corrected when they have time.

Recently I needed to watermark hundreds of image files but found that batch processing them using my version of Adobe PhotoShop was rather complex.... After a lot of searching on the Internet I discovered FastStone Image Viewer, which I can highly recommend. It also does lots of other useful things - e.g. it can resize images in batches, and amazingly it is entirely free (but donations are welcome)!
I have updated the WCP's transcription protocol - please download the new version (v. 15) by CLICKING HERE. If you would like to see how it differs from version 14 then please see the following Word document which shows the changes - http://wallaceletters.info/content/comparison-between-version-14-15-wcps...
