Morphology > Separate Features

Separates connected features using the watershed algorithm

1. Maximum Line Length

Set a maximum allowable line length for new separation lines.

2. Edge Lines

Toggle allowing separation lines to touch the edge of the image.

3. Resolution

  • High: Works better for separating features with high pixel density
  • Low: Works better for separating features with low pixel density (more pixelated)

4. Thickness

Thickness of separation lines

5. Separation

Controls strength of separation. Increase the slider to create more separations. (Recommended: 2-5)


  • Recommend starting separation value:3
  • Match thickness to existing separation lines for best result
  • In case of separation line artifact, isolate separation lines and reject lines based on size, orientation or roughness
