Tricolour
Tri-colour
Tri-Colour
TriColour

Tricolour is an actual dictionary word. But how would you all like your tag to be shown? With/without the hyphen? In cool hacker format => TriColour? Capital 'C' on Colour, or not? I'll use the British spelling.



MWIR tag also. :cool: :cool: :cool:

I'm not too worried, but if I'm pushed to vote I'd go with TriColour. I'm also OK with US-English spelling as that is what International English is.

Re. the definition of Macro, the formal definition is a magnification of at least 1:1 (i.e. size of an object on the sensor is at least as large as the real subject). However, people use the term more loosely to mean very close-up - my SMC Macro Takumar 100mm has a maximum magnification of 1:2. I would not be too proscriptive about this - people have the general undertsanding that this is extreme close-up rather than just a close-up like a portrait. There's also the problem that people with cameras with smaller sensors would be more constrained in the subjects they could submit because 1:1 for them will cover a smaller part of the subject than 1:1 would on a full frame.

So I wouldn't worry about defining it now - if we see there is a problem with what is going into this tag then we may have to revisit this.

I want to remind anyone who has done tri-color/colour images to add that tag. The only tagged topics so far are mine. I tagged two topics, even if I posted a tri-color image also here.

I'll do it when Andrea has set up the Macro tag so I can do all my stuf at the same time rather than going throiugh it several times.

I reminded it because the TriColour tag was added after Andrea dropped "UV" from other tags, so I thought people forgot to tag their topics a second time. Good to know no one apparently forgot to do it.

Yes Please!
A Macro tag, but defined rather loosely, not just 1:1 and above.
