Online Course: Photoshop Methods for Microscopy

This course shows acceptable methods for working with images taken in microscopy. Microscopy images have unique attributes not found in typical subject matter in photography; and the adjustments in post-processing are limited to those commonly accepted in the scientific community. The emphasis in these courses is to avoid any adjustment that would obscure details; and, conversely, to make adjustments to reveal visual details. Methods lead to “corrections” and not to “doctoring” or “enhancing.”
Furthermore, objective means are shown with tools built into Photoshop, when possible, to determine extent of corrections.

Featured "Mini Course" Movies in Photoshop

This minicourse goes over how to open AVI movies, Image Sequences and Image Stacks in Photoshop. Movie includes information on labeling, placing movies side by side, adjusting tones/sharpening, and merging colorized channels. You will need to have versions CS3 - CS6 "EXTENDED Version" so that you can label parts of the movie.

You can open Zeiss, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, and other confocal image stacks in Photoshop, but you will need to save or export the image stack as an AVI stack in the manufacturer's software, or in Image J. Be sure to save the AVI stack as Uncompressed.
