Using the Feature Mask© Tool With Color & Monochrome Images

The Feature Mask tool can be applied to a color or monochrome image to separate or split stars from an object such as a galaxy, nebula, cluster, comet, and background. The split star and object with background images can be used as masks with conventional mask process techniques. A mask created using the Feature Mask tool, unlike conventional mask that are often blurred to remove objects and stars, are very detailed and allow precise selection. Often it is simpler to process the split star and object images directly using different tool with optional mask and luminance range control then merge the processed images. Feature mask split and merge is lossless when using ImagesPlus x64 image processing on Windows x64.
