Extraction of porosity and pore size distribution from SEM images

We assume that the input SEM images are gray-scale and darker parts of the image
shows deeper surfaces which are considered as pore spaces

Hints:
if your image has got a transparency layer (alpha) you need to remove it.
Also, if the image has got the black subtitle bar, it should be removed before feeding to the code.
Let me know if you ran into a problem.

@Shani Sadeh your image must have some sort of physical scale on it. you can open up the image in paint and use the box selection tool to measure the length of the scale bar in pixels. then divide the physical size of the bar by the number of pixels.

how do I calculate the spatial resolution of my input?
