How can I change the overlap settings used when scanning a region of interest?
The overlap settings are stored under Device Settings — Scan Options — Field Overlap Settings. The overlap method specifies how scanned images are overlapped.
- Overlap to Stitch (default)
This option creates jobs with overlapped adjacent images that may be combined to form a large image of the scanned area. This is the best option to select if you need to create large images from your scans.
This option creates jobs with images that are not overlapped. Images from these jobs may not be combined into a large image. This is the best option to select for jobs that create images for automated or third-party analysis tools.
- Custom Overlap
This option allows you to manually specify the number of pixels of overlap for adjacent images. This option may be useful if you use third-party image stitching programs or image processors.
When you select Custom Overlap, you may specify the number of pixels of overlap for the X and Y axis.
- X Overlap
This option allows you to specify the number of X pixels (length of the slide) to overlap when the Overlap Method is set to Custom Overlap. You may specify a negative number to leave a gap between images.
- Y Overlap
This option allows you to specify the number of Y pixels (width of the slide) to overlap when the Overlap Method is set to Custom Overlap. You may specify a negative number to leave a gap between images.
