Background on Jerry Sedgewick
Jerry Sedgewick is an independent consultant and author on scientific imaging. He worked at the University of Minnesota from 1984 to 2009, where he specialized in image capture, processing and analysis. Over those years, CCD cameras began to be applied to biological imaging, laser-scanning confocal microscopes first became commercially available, and PC-based image processing software came into wide use. Sedgewick introduced new image capture technologies and programs for image processing and analysis at the University of Minnesota, and helped users apply these methods to their research projects. He is the author of Scientific Imaging with Photoshop, now in its second edition.
|Through the use of Photoshop ™, the possibility of manipulating images lies in every scientist’s hands. When the alterations are not intended to mislead—as in the addition of lanes in panel B of this figure—certain steps should be taken as best practices to document the changes.|
