Capturing and Cropping the First Image

This part of the Capture X Getting Started Guide describes:

The process described assumes images will be cropped manually, using a cropping template. See the AutoCrop for Core Tray Images guide for information on using Seequent’s machine learning technology to automatically crop core tray images.

Capturing the First Image

Once your camera is in position, enter the start and end depths (A) and the box number (B). Then click a button (B) to capture the first image. In this example, only a Dry image will be captured:

Once the image has been captured, it will be displayed. The next step is to crop it and create a cropping template that can be used for the other captured images.

Cropping the Image

Start cropping the image by clicking on the Show Cropping button:

The Crop Image button (A) is for setting the boundary for the image as a whole. Click the Crop Row button (B) to define rows inside the box. The Apply Template button (C) is for applying a cropping template to the image, and will be useful for subsequent images.

Clicking Crop Image shows the current image boundary:

Use the handles to resize it:

Next click the Crop Row button. This will add a row to the image, outlined in green (A). Note that the cropping boundary (B) is now outlined in red.

Click inside the row boundary to edit it. It will turn yellow and you can use the handles to resize it:

Click the Crop Row button again to add the second row boundary to the image. Here we can see the first row boundary (A) in green and the second (B) in yellow:

When you first add the second row boundary to the image, you will need to click inside of it to edit it; it will turn yellow and you will be able to adjust it using the handles.

Creating a Cropping Template

Once you have cropped the first captured image, you can save the image and row boundaries as a cropping template. To do this, click on the Save As Template button, then enter a name for the new template:

The next time you capture an image, you can apply the template by clicking the Apply Template button:

Then you can edit the image and row boundaries to suit the newly-captured image, if necessary.
