Today I’d like to show you a nice microscopic picture, which I took several years ago of two human hair.
Köhler illumination reduces stray light and therefore increases contrast when taking pictures.
Digital photography gives the users many new possibilities in improving photographs taken through the microscope. This post gives an overview of the different image processing functions that can be applied to microscopic images.
