Background Subtraction Toolkit Download
The Olympus digital microscope image Background Subtraction Toolkit is a stand-alone Java application program designed for the Windows operating system, which can be utilized to produce uniform backgrounds for digital images captured with this unique inverted optical microscope.
Because of the wide spectrum of illumination modes available in optical microscopy, images can suffer from brightness variations that are manifested by gradients appearing in the background. These fluctuations often lead to contrast and brightness deficiencies in the specimen region and can seriously affect the quality of an otherwise acceptable digital image. The Background Subtraction Toolkit (the user interface is illustrated in Figure 1) is designed to help eliminate background gradients and produce even, uniform backgrounds without affecting the properties of the specimen image.
