Image Tools


This package is presented as a way for users to load, display, and print out summary views from sets of TIFF images without needing to write code.


Once installed, the package is accessible from the Packages->Panels->Image Tools menu.

The displayed content is divided as three frames.

  • An image display window shows the currently active image
  • A histogram display pane shows histograms below the image being displayed.
  • Operation of the package is done using inputs on a control panel.

Main Tab

  • Load a single image, multiple images, a folder of images, or a selection of images from a stack.
  • Choose to keep the source (or not), to extract any one or all of the RGB channels, and/or to create a grayscale image.
  • Step through images that are loaded as sets using buttons to advance or go backward in the loaded sets.
  • Choose one or more images to assemble to make a contact print layout with or without the histogram.
  • See the histogram on linear and log scales as well as the cumulative and derivative histograms.
  • Hide the histogram frame when desired.
  • Scale the derivative histogram to search for positions of zero crossings (peaks in histogram).
  • Select a region of interest (RoI) to show the histograms.
  • Lock the RoI to continue using the selection tool on the image.

Future Plans

The near-term plan is to add tools (tabs) to the control panel to allow a user to calibrate xy scales, perform thresholding, and extract line profiles on one image or across the sets of loaded images.
