 Save Selections

This function saves selections drawn on the current image window using one of the drawing tools (see the Trace, Rectangle, Polygon, Circle Tools) to a file.

To save regions, click on the Save Mask button, then enter in a unique name and finally click save.


The default extension for a mask file is .msk. This function can be used to consistently and reproducibly apply the same selection to multiple images or to transfer a selection from one image to another in order to implement “blind” tracing to avoid bias.

The pointer tool allows the mask to be moved around the image once loaded.
