Please hepl my identify the appropriate matlab plugin - Combine Two or more images

Asked by Mark on 22 May 2012

Hello,

I have recently acquired numerous images from a microscope. In order to use the information there, I have to use some of the images to create a much larger image. Because of the nature of the specimen I placed on the microscope, the 'larger image' won't necessarily be a perfect rectangle or square; it might be T-shaped or L-shaped, have some other irregular shape. In other words the areas where each individual image overlap aren't regularly distributed.

Is there a matlab plugin that allows the user to open each of the images for a given sample, manually overlap them, and then create a final image from the result? Does it work with 16-bit images?

Thank you,

Mark

I would intuitively suggest that if you want to use MatLab for this, then you will be developing (or adapting/using) some automatic image matching techniques. The Image Processing Toolbox would be useful here. If you want manual control, then have a look around the internet for free image stitching software. It might possibly get you to your goal a bit faster.

Thank you for your help everyone. I found a plug-in for a free microscopy software package that will let me do what I want to do. Apparently, I also need to learn how to use spell check, since I spelled 'help' as 'hepl' in the subject line for this post.

Thank you!

Mark

You could use imtransform() in the Image Processing Toolbox. There is not a built in application to build up a larger image by placing smaller, distorted images on a larger canvass and then dewarping them. You'd have to build that yourself or hire a consultant to write it for you, or else use Photoshop or similar photo-editing software.
