Layers & Filters


Skipper supports layering of images for quick and easy comparison between two or more views. This makes it easy to see and compare all overlapping cells.


Skipper has built-in filters that are used to remove unwanted noise and enhance countable cells. Some of these filters include Gaussian blur, spatial convolutions, mean and median filtering, sharpen, and various edge detectors. It is easy to combine any number of filters to enhance the images and produce more accurate results.

Camera noise (such as horizontal lines) can inhibit image processing software to perform optimally. By applying various filters, the image is corrected and Skipper is able to automatically detect all objects.
