Photoshop for Lab Scientists

Develop an interactive teaching resource for basic histomorphometric analysis

We have received funding for developing an interactive teaching resource for basic histomorphometric analysis using Adobe Photoshop Extended. Adobe has greatly expanded the capabilities of Photoshop for measuring image elements. Using an application like Photoshop would eliminate the hurdles of buying a very expensive, highly specialized histomorphometric package in order to make a limited number of measurements. Using a general purpose application instead of a dedicated histomorphometric application would particularly appeal to researchers who do such measurements to a somewhat limited degree.

I am interested in the field. It is both cost effective for the users and sort of convention for everybody to use a unique tool.
