If I touch it, will I break it? 


How many of you have never clicked on many of the Metron buttons because you are worried that something might go wrong, maybe you would wreck an image and then cannot fix it.


Metron was designed for the user in mind!   Go ahead - click away!   


Every Metron image has a master and a copy.  As the operator, you are only ever touching the copy.  To return your image to is original state of when you first shot the X-Ray, just click on one of the "Detail Filter" buttons 1,2,3,4.  Metron reproduces a copy from the master image.  


Do you want to look at the same image before and after you make changes to it?   

Mark your image and click the "Copy" button, then click the "Paste" button.   Next, open the second image and make your adjustments.   Finally, return to the Database Browser, mark both images and click the "View" button to display both images side by side.

User Q & A

Questions from your Peers



Should I always crop an image?

Cropping is very much a personal preference. Keep in mind that whenever you crop an image, the remaining portion of the image will grow to fill in the screen area - will magnify. 

We recommend that you crop collimated images as a general rule.  But for images with full exposure, we recommend you leave them in full view.
