Add an image to a mosaic

To add an image to a mosaic, make sure the Mosaic tool is active. Select Add Image from the Mosaic main menu, or right click on the slice and select Add Image from the context menu. Select the image file to be added. After selecting the image, a dialog box as the one in Figure 1 to specify the pixel size appears.


Figure 1: Image properties.

The default values are the same ones as the values defined for the sequence. If these values are not correct, they can be edited manually by selecting a unit of measure and editing the fields Pixel Size (X) and Pixel Size (Y). If the precise values for these fields are unknown, use Load from image to obtain the pixel size from an image that contains an object of known size. See Obtaining the pixel size from an image, for specific instructions.

The pixel size specified in the dialog box  of Figure 1 applies only to the particular image being added, all other images keep their own pixel size unchanged. When a sequence has images with different pixel sizes, BioVis3D scales each image appropriately to show them coherently.

To add the image, click OK.
