Creating figures for publications from QuPath images


Undergrad student using this for a small project looking at embryo morphology. What is the best way to create images to be used as figures in my dissertation submission?
I need to have a scale bar present in each of the images that I generate. What is the best/ easiest way to do this!

Many thanks,


If the built in scale bar in the lower left is not what you are looking for, you could try turning it off (in the View menu), use the Extensions menu to Send Snapshot to ImageJ (which is basically what you see in the viewer), and then add the scale bar using normal ImageJ tools (Analyze-Tools-Scale Bar…).

*This assumes your original image in QuPath had accurate pixels/um scale metadata.
