low contrast image analyses

Jorge A. Santiago-Blay
Hello ImageJ users:

A colleague of mine and I are analyzing fossil leaf images with damage
markings. The images themselves have low contrast and enhancing contrast
followed by thresholding is not helping much.

The next idea we have is to click on a well defined damaged area and tell
ImageJ to expand the pixels from the clicked point until it "sees" a
boundary. Is there a way to do that? In other words, what we are trying
*not* to do, is to manually tell ImageJ what areas to calculate as it will
take a long time.

If you have a constructive suggestion, please kindly email me directly,

Gratefully,

Jorge

Dear Jorge,

Sounds you are looking for an Active contour (also known as Snake) plugin. There are several on the imageJ website. The link to the Thomas Boudier website seems to be lost but you can find the plugin at http://imagejdocu.tudor.lu/plugin/segmentation/active_contour/start

Best wishes
