When viewing a deep zoom image, I can export a region of interest as a TIF, BMP, JPG, or PNG image. Is there a way to add the scale bar (like the one displayed in the deep zoom image viewer) to the created image file?
No. This is not possible at this time.
When you export an image from the deep zoom viewer, only the image data is saved in the image file. Things like a scale bar would typically be saved as a separate layer in the output file. Each of the exported files (BMP, JPG, PNG, and TIF) are saved as bitmap images with no separate layers. We may add this capability in a future release of the uScope Navigator application.
As a work-around, you may opt to create a Tiled TIFF (SVS) image when creating the whole slide image. This image is compatible with many third-party SVS image viewers that can display a scale bar.
