Adobe PhotoShop Elements : Enhance scientific and medical images

Light, shadow and detail interact in wild and mysterious ways in microscopic photography, posing special challenges for the researcher and educator. With Adobe Photoshop CS2, itís a snap to enhance the detail in any image, whether itís destined for publication or the classroom.

Create layers to protect your original imageWith Photoshop CS2, you can use layers to enhance your scientific images while keeping the original data¬†intact. You can do this in two simple ways‚ÄĒby duplicating the original data layer and working only with the duplicate layers, and by using adjustment¬†layers, which lie above the data and modify only how that data appears to the viewer. Adjustment layers can also simply be hidden or deleted to¬†reveal the original image.
1 Duplicate the original background image.When you first open a captured microscopic image, it contains a single layer labeled Background. Drag the layer to the New Layer button at the bottom of the Layers palette, or choose Layer > Duplicate Layer. The image is duplicated in a new layer labeled Background Copy.
2 Hide the original layer.Click the eye icon next to the original background layer to hide the background, preserving your original image data in the Photoshop document. You can reveal this layer again at any time by clicking the empty eye icon box.
3 Give the duplicate layer a more meaningful name.Double-click the label Background Copy and type a descriptive name, such as Cytology Slide 1. Press Enter or Return to save the new name. The layer is now highlighted to indicate it remains selected. You are now ready to bring out all of the detail you can get from the image.Use a Levels adjustment layer tobring out the detail
1 Create the adjustment layer.With the Cytology Slide 1 layer still selected, click the Create Adjustment Layer button and choose Levels from the pop-up menu, or choose Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels. The Levels command is an easy yet powerful tool for enhancing detail, giving much finer results than you can achieve with simple brightness or contrast adjustments.
2 Evaluate and adjust the histogram for the red color channel.The histogram at the center of the Levels dialog box shows the relative number of pixels in the shadows (at the left of the histogram), midtones (middle), and highlights (right). Although you can adjust all color channels (RGB) in the image at once, here we will adjust each color channel individually, for greater precision. Adjusting the levels for each channel separately also allows you to adjust the color of the image, because you are modifying the relative amounts of red, green, and blue. Adjusting all channels simultaneously maintains the original color.
