Description: This workshop aims to teach scientists from different areas how to handle and process digital images starting from image acquisition on until the incorporation into the final publication figure. This includes important theory about high-quality digital images in general as well as a broad spectrum of methods for correct image processing and specific analytical purposes according to high scientific standards.
You will learn how to extract the most information from your images and how to quantify regions of interest. Additionally, the workshop includes a lot of hands-on sessions and demonstrates methods to ease repetitive image processing steps as well as save time while building your publication figures in a way that preserves image quality and stores processing data. You will be able to revisit the learned material using the provided exercises and script also later on. The workshop content is generally of interest for all scientists working with digital images and their analysis but has a focus on microscopic imaging. Optional topics will be adjusted to meet the participants’ needs as good as possible.
