    USB Microscope

    Hi !
    Recently i bought a USB Microscope 400x to get better images of screen on plate, but the software that came don't measure dot area. only distances and angles.
    What i want is a sftware that can calculate the dot area, to make linearization more precise.
    can somebody help me please ?!
    thks !

    Thanks in advance!

    well i tried the cityhunter soft tip,
    but no success, problem is that it does not recognize my usb microscope.
    and another issue are you able to measure dot area with your soft ?
    because that's my problem.
    so up to now i didn't found any soft capable to measure dot area.

    hi megadeth!

    i like the idea to measure the dot area of a printing plate with an usb microscope since this would be a very cheap alternative to a plate reader. but i doubt those cheap devices can deliver the picture quality that is needed for accurate values. focus and contrast are very important.

    can you provide a high resolution picture of your plate dots so i can take a look?
    writing a custom software for evaluating the dot area should be simple.

    btw: are you on mac or pc?

    Hi spider !

    Well you got the idea, instead buying instruments that cost more than 1,5k us$ i think that this usb microscope can do the job, i will get some images and send to you.
    I'm also searching the web for all usb microscope trying to find one that does this already, i saw one once that if i'm not mistake is called "dino-lite" that had dot area measurement.
