In this section of the workshop we are going to cover adjusting images to make…up for deficiencies in the acquisition systems or specific problems with…acquiring the image. Now let's get something straight right now. It's the…researcher's goal for each and every image that they collect to be a true…representation of the sample. On top of that each image collected stands alone…in how best to acquire that particular image.…The imaging equipment has to be in proper working order, calibrated and set up…to the best of your ability to acquire unbiased images that have the correct…exposure. An example of this is setting up proper color illumination on a…microscope. If you don't do that you've already hobbled your acquisition system…and your images will be poor.…
The use of image processing to adjust an image should be to compensate from…limitations in the equipment or samples. Over the next few videos I will be…using various pictures that have been either scanned in or images collected…directly from a digital camera connected to a microscope.…
