Hi Folks

When I do a scan of a slide (or a neg) in my Coolscan V, the image is stored as a TIFF. In red on the TIFF is '2P', up in the left corner above the image.
I think it means '2 pages'. Page 1 is just what I expect. Page 2 is the crummy copy. I only want what is found on 'page 1'. If I need to resize, I can do that myself.

If I try and scroll through the scans, after I've viewed the one I want to see- the next image is a duplicate pic, but greatly reduced in size and quality.

I don't want these 'thumbnail' size pics, as they greatly spoil the fun of scrolling through my scans.

If I modify a scan, and save it as a jpeg, I don't get this duplication.

Worse- if I try to delete the thumbnail like copy, I get asked if I want to delete both. So I can't even get rid of the damn things.

Does anyone know why this is happening or how to delete the unwanted copy images?

I read somewhere that there is always a 'preview' associated with a TIFF. How can I get rid of them?

Ta.
