Color Scheme

The color scheme will affect the appearance of the images in the display section.

 

The four buttons on the tool, “Grey”, “Mixed”, "Tint", “Over” and “Tag” control how the images are displayed in the Image Area. They are used to display either the GLI image, the TAG image or a combination of both.

From the Graphic Interface

 

 

 

Grey

Only the GLI image is visible.

 

Mix

The Tag color image is mixed with the GLI image. By default, each image is half its normal intensity and the two are added together. The “mixed” value can be modified with the “shift +” or “shift -“ keys so that the TAG image will appear more or less dense.

 

Note:

Since rev-4a, the Mix mode is slightly different, if you prefer the old look, set the variable "$COLOR_CLASIC" to 1, or press "Shift F2".

 

Tint

The GLI image is tinted with the TAG color.  . The “tint” value can be modified with the “shift +” or “shift -“ keys so that the TAG image will appear more or less dense.

 

Note:

If the GLI values are black, the TAG color will not be seen.

 

Over

The Tag color image is displayed over the GLI image. The GLI image is thus only visible in the regions where the Tag values are 0.

 

TAG

Only the Tag color image is visible.

 

Color map

This window displays the grey level color map used to display the GLI images.

 

Black / White

These sliders are used to control the contrast and brightness  of the GLI image.

All values smaller than the value of the black slider are black.

All values greater than the value of the white slider are white.

All values in between are interpolated linearly.
