Helicon Focus: Tool to make pre-defined scale measurements

Unread postby Ariel » 20.12.2007 05:48

See this thread: http://forum.helicon.com.ua/viewtopic.php?p=3158#3158

Perhaps there should be a feature in Helicon Focus which allows users to make a set of pre-defined scales (to mark the actual size of objects in microscope photography) that a user can easily select from a customized list. Additionally, the existing scale feature should allow the user to add a caption to it, such as 1mm, to identify actual subject size.

A tool that would allow calibration relative to predefined magnification sets would go a long way towards making HF a tool for scientific study and illustration. Automontage has this function, along with the ability to take measurements, both of which are a large part of insect taxonomic studies.

This is a good idea. How do you see calibration process? As I understand you need to enter magnification for each image so the program can calculate everything else.
