This book leads the reader on a guided tour of the practical methods that can reveal the most important information in the digital images used for scientific, forensic and technical purposes, using richly illustrated examples that show the reader the step-by-step procedures for correcting problems in recorded images, enhancing the critical details, isolating objects and structures for measurement, and deriving the quantitative data useful for subsequent analysis. The emphasis in the book is on teaching by example, and providing visual comparisons of the various tools that can be applied, following the typical workflow needed to correct imaging defects, enhance details, isolate objects and structures, and perform measurements. The examples are purposely taken from a wide range of subjects, including various kinds of microscopy, medical imaging, forensic photography, and astronomy.
