Corn Seeds Counter (ear)

Hi There everyone,
I was wondering if anyone could help-me to find a solution to counting (estimate) the number of kernels (seeds) that I have in a ear of corn, as shown in the image attached.
Lets say that I can have more then 1 image of the ear in other angles, is there any image processing library or solution that could estimate the number of seeds?
Thank you so much in advance.

Hi @rsalencar

I propose this:
-> 32 bit -> “Unsharp Mask” filter -> filter “Gaussian Blur”
then: Find Maxima

Hi @rsalencar,
@bcimini
Here is a try with the cellprofiler (PFA pipeline). Not just the counts, but also can compute the area & other measurements available in cellprofiler. Little bit of tweaking around might help as well.
