Hey, Image Analyst, your submission is more flexible and robust, but it is much more complex and longer (and harder to understand). This submission simply introduces a couple of IPT commands and their usage, and uses a thresholding technique different than other algorithms (but easier to understand for complete beginners).

The red objects are meant to be small, since the code helps you identify things that can't be seen with your eyes. As a result it isn't %100 accurate, but it works for its smiple purpose.

This looks like a simpler, less flexible and robust version of this prior submission:
And it doesn't use a good sample image because the red objects aren't large enough to be visible. An image with larger red objects would improve this.
