A number of journals (including Lab on a Chip - Ed) provide space to upload image and movie data alongside publications on the web. However, the print publication must also contain sufficient illustrations to facilitate the understanding of the content without reference to such files. This tip demonstrates the use of a low cost image analysis system which may be used to facilitate data presentation of poor quality video images for use in paper-based publications. This is especially important in the field of miniaturisation and microfluidics, where video data is often the most convenient format (sometimes the only format) in which to record results.
