Home Image-Pro General Discussions



I have images acquired using metamorph which saves them as 16bit images. When I view the files I have to use True Range which gives very good results, however, when I threshold it defaults back to 16bit rendering the features I'm trying to pick out invisible. The intensity is quite low around 500-800 max intensity. I can change the bit depth to 12 bit which helps a little but the features are still almost impossible to pick out accurately. Is there a way to force the Thresholding tool to keep the True Range settings and stop it from defaulting back to the original bit depth. I can't really go down to 8bit as that would clip the intensity data I'm trying to measure. Any suggestions would be great. I'm using Premier version 9.1.23 Build 5231. 




  • Hello David,

    Thank you for reporting this problem. It will be fixed in the next patch (9.1.2).
    The problem affects threshold preview on monochrome images with adjusted LUT. As a workaround, to have visual feedback adjusting threshold, you can convert the image to Color 36/48 (direct copy) and use Mono interpretation in the Threshold Tool. 

    Best regards,

  • Thanks Yuri
