Is there any way of retaining/saving a freehand selection over an image?

HI

I am using image J to calculate the area invaded by cancer cells, so far it has been nice and simple to do.
I am processing 100’s of images using the freehand selection tool. Is there anyway that i can save these images WITH the area i have selected still indicated on it? I would like to show my supervisors some of them at random to make sure they are happy with my method. I know i can do a screenshot, but its not as neat and tidy :wink:

Hi @Sherina,

take a look at the documentation on overlays. You are able to save an image with an overlay as TIFF (in a non-destructive manner).

Best,
Stefan
