Welcome to the Kodak Catalogue Project - 2011





We have tried to make this CD as easy to use as possible. It will run on Macs as well as PCs. It is important to have installed the latest versions of AdobeReader™ on your computer. As a minimum version 9. We have included some Adobe™ install files on this CD however we may not have included the correct version for your operating system/computer. So, we have included the appropriate links to the Adobe™ website below where you can find all the possibilies. After upgrading to the current version of the AdobeReader™ software, you will have to refresh this page.

We hope that the CD is fairly easy to use as it only utilizes one program, AdobeReader™, and one Adobe™ PDF Portfolio. The Portfolio contains the Indroduction, Index, all Catalogues and a Poster of the Catalogues. It is searchable from the Portfolio by individual catalogues or all 74 catalogues including the Introduction and Index. We have also included an index that can be used for advanced seaching techniques for those of you that have the latest Mac OS or WIndows™ 7 and AdobeReader™ 9 or higher. Sorry I did not have time to test all configurations. Please contact me if you find issues you can not resolve and I will do my best to fix them.

A readme file is included below and is also located on the CD. It will guide you through the initial process. As you become familiar with the AdobeReader™ program, you will see what a powerful tool it is to navigate the catalogue portfolio.

READ-ME

The Kodak Catalogue Project

When you open the CD, everything is pretty much self-explanatory. If you have the latest Mac OS or Windows 7 and AdobeReader™ 9 or 10, just open the Portfolio file and proceed.  You may also have features available to you that are not available in earlier operating systems. If not, read on!

Adobe™: If you have an earlier AdobeReader™, fear not, there is an updated copy on the CD for both PCs and Macs if the included files do not match your operating system or computer there is a link to the AdobeReader™ download page. Just follow the directions that you have probably already found.

Please remember that this is a 365 MB file. It takes time to load and it takes time to search. Once in memory it seems reasonable. But do not click your mouse wildly as it may seem like the computer has hung up. If you feel you are stuck, close the portfolio and re-open it.

Windows: If you have Windows Vista, you may have a few glitches in using your CD. Not too bad, but I’ll walk you through it because that’s what I have on my computer.

Step one: Open the Portfolio file. You will see part of Charlie Kamerman and part of the Introduction to the CD. To see all of Charlie, resize the Introduction window. Microsoft™ describes the process thusly:

Using the mouse cursor grab the edge of the window (the cursor turns to a double-headed arrow when you’re positioned appropriately) and drag it to the right.

Step Two: Read Charlie’s greeting and check out the cool Art Deco boxes on his shelves. Then click the button that says “Get Started.” If you want to banish Charlie to Siberia forever, check the box “Don’t show welcome Page again.” You now will see a list of catalogue covers on the left. You can browse these, but I recommend you read the Introduction first. It’s a real treat. (Yup, I wrote it!) You do this by using the Grab and Move trick to expand the right-sided window until you can see all of the Introduction. You will still have a column of catalogue covers on the left side. You should be able to navigate the entire Introduction, around 30 pages or so. If not, you may need to take a course!

Step Three: Look at a catalogue. Navigate with the little buttons at the right of the catalogue covers until you find the one you want, say 1918. (Hint: on my computer, the cursor gets a little unsteady and it’s hard to hold your choice. If that happens, after to see you catalogue choice, quickly move the cursor to the right, just into the right window. This will settle it down. Then you can put your cursor over the 1918 catalogue cover and click. I think this is “anxious mouse syndrome.” Click on the cover and, like magic, the cover comes up in the right sided window. Navigate that window like you did for the Introduction and you can see all the catalogue pages for 1918. To adjust the size of the window, or to find the Icon to print a page, roll your cursor over the bottom of the page you are observing. A little grey box will come and go and you can catch it with your cursor to print, or click on – or + to make the catalogue page smaller or larger.

Step Four: The Notes. Move from the cover image to the next page. You will find a brief note about that particular catalogue. Hopefully, you will find these notes interesting. Every catalogue has a unique note on the second page.

Step Five: Searching. This is a bit complicated because it’s really different in different Versions and Operating Systems. Again, I am using Windows Vista. On the light grey tool bar above the catalogue page, you will find a small box that says “search.” Still looking at the 1918 Notes page, (or the cover, or any other page) type in that box “tripod” and press “enter.” You will see the “Search Results” box that tells you that this catalogue has 40 instances of the word “tripod.” Click on the title of the catalogue in the search results box and you will see a list of the first five instances. You can move up and down in those five or you can navigate to other groups of five by using the up and down arrows to the right of the catalogue title, still within the search results box. Pick an instance and click on it. Bingo! You’re looking at the page mentioned in the Instance you chose.

To get back to the catalogue pages without the search business, find the box labeled “Layout.” It’s to the far left of the search box that still says “tripod.” Click on Layout and you are back at the double windows which you can resize, find another catalogue etc. Play with it. If you have an ounce of Kodakiana blood in you, you’ll have fun!

Step Six: The Index. This is a list of items from the catalogues: cameras and accessories. It’s the second file from the top, tucked in between the Introduction and the 1885 catalogue. Click on it. You are looking at a list over 500 items: cameras, film, paper, enlargers, shutters, tripods, etc. Each is dated by the year it is found in a catalogue. You can search the name of an item and see which catalogue it is in. Go to that catalogue and search for the item there. Be careful with your spelling.

For example, go to the top of the Index. Adjust the size of the window so you see it all. Type “folding bullseye” in the search box at the top (with the binoculars.) Hit enter and … nothing! The search results box says “no matches were found.” Now try it with “folding bulls-eye.” Now you can go to the three instances of that camera in the index and see that it had three types and which catalogue each type is in from 1898 to 1901. If you put a space before or after the hyphen, the program won’t find it. Remember when you learned to spell things exactly right because computers are so stupid? It’s still true.

Have fun!
Thanks for Reading Me, 

George “Kaptain Kodak” Layne
