Rick, sorry for the tardy reply ... I have tried both the manual import and folder watching techniques and both seem to work for me. Maybe I'm lucky, although that is not consistent with other aspects of my life.
Some other recent observations ...
- When rotating jpegs in IVMP3 you need to use the "JPEG rotate" command to have it visible in Bridge
- When rotating a DNG in IVMP3, if you use the View>rotate command, it does rotate the thumbnail and the image as shown on the media tab. JPEG rotate seems to have no effect, even though the embedded preview is jpeg. Rotations on DNG files in IVMP do not seem to have visibility in Bridge. This is not suprising
Cheers ... Al
