Basic module 2: VideometerLab Toolbar and Image Tools

Before starting on Module 2, please have a look at Basic module 1 and/or  Pre module, and make sure you are confident with the Videometer software basics.

A general overview for thesecond training module, we will go through

  1. Toolbar menu
  2. Plot menu and Conversion menu (under Image Tools)

In the following the above 2 topics will be elaborated further. Together with each headline follows a small video. These videos will summarise what you will (and have learned) in the training module, and they can be used as either preparation or repetition for the training module.  

1: Toolbar menu
In the first part of the training, we will go through the Toolbar. Here you find all the necessary tools in order to draw and define ROIs in your images. The skills and knowledge you will gain here is essential for your further training in mastering the Videometer software tools. Moreover, we will go over basic generic image masking with build in functions.

 

2: Plot menu and Conversion menu (under Image Tools) 
In the second part of the second training module, a walkthrough of how to use and interpret all the possible plots types will be done. This includes the Statistics plot, Histogram plot, Spectrum plot, Profile plot, Texture plot and Density plot. These plots are available through the software under Image Tools / Measurement. Before being able to visualize any data in the plots, we will use the knowledge we have gained from the training in how to use the Toolbar in the first part of the module. The module will be finished off with a walkthrough of the Conversion menu. From the Conversion menu it is possible to convert images to other colour spaces and to be visualized by absorbance instead of reflection, which is the default.
