Workshop in Digital Photomicrography

October.19.2015 09:37 pm - October.23.2015 09:37 pm | Stockholm

Photomicrography is a powerful tool used for the documentation and presentation of information achieved from research. Despite much effort and intense preparation, the photographic end results are often not satisfactory for technical reasons. Because digital photo equipment has advanced so rapidly, there are now numerous products for analysing and measuring samples. This new technology often requires completely new photographic knowledge and approaches used to complement computer skills.
The Swedish Bioimaging network is supporting this workshop with a grant.There is also a special grant for traveling expenses.

Target population

The course has been developed for post graduate students and researchers in various fields of biomedical engineering who need practical knowledge about microscopy and imaging techniques useful for the photo documentation of their work.


After completing the course the participants will have a working knowledge of the fundamentals of optical microscopy and be able to use appropriate presentation methods for conveying their research results in a clear and informative way. Multimedia software and image processing software will be used including Adobe Photoshop® as well other digital microscopy software for image acquisition.
