Images produced in microscopy need to be treated adequately so that they can be exploited. In many instances, measurements and quantifications can (and should) be performed on these images.

The objective of the course is to give participants keys to perform these operations as efficiently as possible, focusing on the use of the open-source software Fiji.

The course is accessible to beginners.
The pre-requisites are to have (even minimal) experience in microscopy,
and to come to the course with a laptop that can run Fiji (i.e. not extremely outdated and with at least 2GB of RAM).

The course includes short lectures and guided exercises on the following topics:
- what is an image, and what is IN an image,
- processing and displaying images,
- colocalization analysis,
- filters, deconvolution, use of the Fourier space
- warping,
- segmentation,
- artificial intelligence in data analysis

In addition the course includes guided exercises on the following topics:
- processing images and preparing images for figures
- processing and displaying z stacks
- performing measurements
- colocalization anlysis,
- segmentation,
- writing macros to (semi-)automate procesing, measurements and output steps
