Interactive Contour Preferences

The Interactive Contour Preferences dialog has options for controlling the computation and presentation of the Interactively drawn contour.


Noise in an image can cause contours to be computed for spurious pixels, causing a jumble of contour fragments. This selection controls the sensitivity to noise. A higher smoothness is usually desirable with noisy images.

Cursor ROI

If checked, contouring occurs inside the rectangular region defined by the image cursor.
