Digital Image Software

There are several popular commercial image editing software programs. Most of these programs were initially developed for the use of the desktop publishing (advertising), or amatuer/professional phtographers. The programs have many powerful features that are often completely unrelated to the needs of scientific users.

Digital Imaging: Introduction

Pixels

A digital image is usually a rectangular grid comprised of individual pixels (picture element or PEL). A good analogy might be a tile mosaic, with the smallest element in the mosaic being the individual tiles (each of which is one color or shade). Each pixel in a digital image has a bit-depth value, which informs the computer which color (or shade of gray)the pixel will display (the greater the bit-depth value, the more colors/grays to choose from). The combined effect of all the individually colored pixels creates the image.

Digital Image Ethics

Introduction to Image Editing Ethics

This topic is increasingly on people's minds given that image manipulation "tricks" that used to take considerable skill in a darkroom now can be done quite easily by anyone using one of the powerful image editing programs that are available. A user does not even have to be intentionally malicious to alter an image in an unethical manner. Unfortunately, many users are unaware of the issues or the effects of their actions.

Class announcement: Fundamentals of Light Microscopy and Electronic Imaging

"This class (CMM 465/565) will teach students the fundamentals as well as advanced levels of the many modes of light microscopy (e.g. fluorescence, confocal and live cell imaging) required for today’s investigators in medical and other biological sciences."

Training opportunities for SWEHSC Investigator labs

 

The Cellular Imaging Facility Core provides a number of one-on-one training opportunities for faculty, staff, students and post-docs. These can be formal training opportunities related to a specific instrument/technique, or informal explanations tailored to a specific research question.
