When qACCORD is invoked, the following screen appears:
In order to work, qACCORD needs some images to process. If you do not have any series SEM images, you can download and unpack the test image series. Add some images in the File List panel using the button. You can select multiple files using Ctrl + left-click or Shift + left-click in the file-selection dialog.
Then you can browse through the selected images.
If you feel a need to sort the images, it is somewhat possible in qACCORD. However, if the number of images is high, the recommended way of sorting them is to save the config file (using the File menu) and sorting them in a text editor or a spreadsheet.
Then switch to the Options panel and select the Output path and Output file name prefix.
* If you want to see all images (partial sums of composed frames) check Export all images. * In order to see the result of traditional (plain) averaging, check Traditional images. * If the Full-weight normalization is checked, the border pixels, which do not carry complete information, are ignored. This is the recommended setting. * If your frames contain an information-bar (usually 30 pixels high bar in the bottom of the image) you should crop it using the Crop settings. (If you don’t crop the info-bar, it may affect performance of the algorithm.)
