The Power of Layers

Each Recipe step outputs either an intensity, or B/W image. B/W images are often the goal, as the black pixels represent the selection at that point in the Recipe. If you are only after one set of features, a final B/W image is all you need. However, if you need to identify multiple feature types (e.g., large vs. small particles), Layers come in very handy.

Layers are essentially “favorited” Recipe steps, which can be overlaid together and measured separately. For example, if you’re after large vs. small particles, you’ll have one step which selects the large, and one which selects the small. Just set each step as a Layer, and you’re done. You’ve now separately classified your two feature types and can enjoy coloring them separately, outputting each selection during a batch process, and taking measurements from each.
