On startup: This is how you would like Photo Mechanic to behave when it launches.

On mount of Camera Disk: This is what action you would like to happen when Photo Mechanic senses that a card has been placed in a card reader. We recommend choosing Show Ingest dialog. 

Color Classes: Customize the color classes and text labels that Photo Mechanic uses to sort images. Click on a color box to choose another color and type in the box next to it to re-label that color. If you want maximum compatibility with Adobe® products, set the labels and colors here to match the labels and colors you use in Adobe products. 

Synchronize Color Class with IPTC/XMP Label: Check this option for better Adobe compatibility with color classes. 

Synchronize Color Class with IPTC/XMP Urgency: Use this option only if you need compatibility with iView Media Pro.
