Hello Group,
I am a complete newbie in graphic processing, but I badly need to perform some filtering on a sequence of images (I acquired by Kerr microscopy).

In the Adobe forum where I first asked for some hints , I recognized at the end a helpful suggestion, which required however the use of FilterFactory - unknown to me.
Browsing around it seems to me that it isnt available anymore (I use CS4), but I found a possible compatible replacement named FilterFoundry.
Having installed it, however, made my CS4 crash whenever I try to use it.

So, 2 fundamental questions, answer at least one and you win a cheesecake ;-)

1) how to find a compatible FilteFactory/FilterFoundry/whatever?

2) how alternatively solve my microscope images processing ? I include my original question here for your convenience...

thank you people!



I have a set of graylevel images (successive microscope acquisitions), and some of those are - on the average - brighter, or darker.

I'd like to choose a reference point (say the top-left pixel) on all the images, and change their brightness so that all the images are the same gray value at that point.

I want to make sure that I do not stretch or deform their histogram, since it contains important informations, so I guess it should be some kind of histogram translation.

Finally, since the images are many, it is an operation that I should be able to convert into an Action, so it cannot involve any manual slider settings...

do you think it is possible???

Under Windows the best Filter Factory alternative is
If you are on a Mac, better contact the Filter Foundry developer and ask him to fix the problem.
