How It Works:

  1. Define figure dimensions and resolution
    According to the journal specification set dimensions in desired units and resolution of the figure in DPI.
  2. Place images
    Images can be simply placed to predefined grid. Desired region of interest of each image can be intuitively selected.
  3. Insert scale bars and labels
    Scale bars can be inserted to all images according to their calibration. Position and orientation of each scale bar in the image can be adjusted.
  4. Export the figure
    Width of borders and spaces between images can be set. Whole project can be stored for future changes.


Defining Figure Size and Resolution

  • resolution in DPI according to the journal specification
  • predefined or custom size in various units (millimeters, centimeters, inches, mils, thou, standard and typographic picas, pixels)

Importing Images

  • from QuickPHOTO or from hard drive
  • scale bars of exact size can be placed to images with calibrations

Images Placing

  • definig snapping grid
  • snapping to grid, borders, to other images

Selecting Region of Interest

  • easy manipulation using mouse, minimap navigator and zooming track bar

Labels and Scale Bars Customization

  • customization of each image individually or all images at once
  • labels: text, position, font, font size, with or without background, background shape, black on white or white on black, offset
  • scale bars: length in units, units (mm, um, nm, in, mils, thou), position, horizontal or vertial, thickness, value showing or not, value above or under the scale bar, value font, value font size, with or without background, black on white or white on black, offset

Automatic Labeling

  • all images in the figure can be automatically labeled by A, B, C, … or 1, 2, 3, …

Project Description

  • each project can have its own text description

Exporting of the Figure

  • the figure can be exported to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, or BMP image format
  • borders (thickness and color) and cutting out spaces between images (space thickness and background color) can be set
  • option to export in grey scale

Projects Saving and Loading

  • the work can be stored to project files for future editing

System Requirements:

  • QuickPHOTO CAMERA, QuickPHOTO MICRO, QuickPHOTO INDUSTRIAL in version 3.0 or higher
