What if I aggressively window-level my images, am I stuck with how they look?
Each image in Metron is made up of two image files. The first is the original image - this image is the very first draft of the image created during acquisition. The second is the "working" image. This image is the one you engage with. Any time you change the image, that change is recorded in the "working" image. This approach to image storage and management means you cannot damage your images by any editing, filtering etc. All you need to do is click on one of the filter buttons labeled 1, 2, 3, 4. Metron will open the original image and recreate the "working" image and apply the chosen filter.
Deleted images - where do they go and can I get them back?
Deleting images is simple - just highlight the images and click on the delete button. Once deleted, the images are moved to the Trash Bin where they can be "undeleted". To permanently delete images, you must click on the "Permanent Delete" in the Trash Bin screen. You will want to permanently delete old files that you are sure you will not need.
How do I backup my images?
Sounds like a simple question but has a complicated answer. The primary purpose of the backup is to protect you from losing your important images if something happens to your computer. How you should perform the backup is the more complicated question.
Local hard drive backup - you can backup to a local external attached hard disk. These devices are inexpensive and easy to use. The trick with these devices - you have to remember to run the backup. Also, most backup programs that come free with these devices only keep one copy of each file. If you delete your deleted files, your backup program may try to reflect the same and delete off the external drive too. Also, some use backup software that will conflict with Metron.
Cloud (offsite) backup - you can also backup to the cloud which is typically a monthly service that runs automatically. The offsite backup is only intended to protect you from a computer failure. If you delete your deleted files, the offsite backup will do the same.
The best backup strategy is to have both an onsite and offsite backup.
Metron Support Services is now offering an offsite backup that is fully automatic. Our Metron support team monitors your backups to make sure they are successful.
