Comments
ImageDocuments are the bounding containers for images, and can contain more than one image. Copy and paste images into another image, and you create a multi-image imagedocument.
System Requirements
Should be compatible with all recent versions of DigitalMicrograph.
Known Issues
This script expects to find an imagedocument with at least three images in it, and the images must be >200 x 200 pixels in size.
Supported
Yes
