Region Checkpoint: Image Comparsion Mask

Hello,

Re: Region Checkpoint: Image Comparsion Mask

The image mask starts out including everything in your image.  Use the cursor to define an area on the image.  If you then click on the '+', you will add that area to mask.  '-' will remove it.

 

If your mask is all white to begin with, adding to the mask won't change anything.

I defined the area and clicked on '+' but there appears no mask preview.

?  But there is a mask preview.  It is showing in the image that you included.  Perhaps a review of the documentation can help:

As you can see on the attached screenshot, there is no "preview" after including the selected area into comparsion. When i´m saving the mask to region files, there is only a blank image.

Re: Region Checkpoint: Image Comparsion Mask

Ah.  I see (I think...)

 

When creating a new image comparison mask, the reference image is provided as a guide.  (Otherwise, how would you know what to include or exclude from your mask if you can't see what in the original image to leave in or cut out?)  What we are doing is creating the mask.  We are not saving an image to the store, we are saving the mask and we want to see a preview of the mask before saving.

 

However, I think you're expecting to see the masked image as well as an example of what would happen when the mask is applied to the image.  If so, I think that is a great idea!  It would certainly make it obvious what would happen during the comparison.

 

Please make the suggestion to our Feature Request forum:

Re: Region Checkpoint: Image Comparsion Mask

Okay after editing the image with inkscape & paint it is showing me that what i want to see ... (as you can see on the screenshot). The question now is: why does it work when i edit the image manually and not when i´m creating an new mask in the comparsion menu?
