just a generic question about filtering with a radius of 1 pixel the the Fiji->Process->Filtering
In my mind most of them should not do nothing with a radius of 1 pixel, instead they still does something.
Does someone know what they do with a pixel radius of 1?
I am just collaborating with a researcher and we are submitting a paper: in this paper I developed a method to identify nucleosomes in Atomic Force Microscope images where I use a Maximum filter with a radius of 1 pixel and I would like to write something about this step and I am facing this question about use a filter with 1 pixel radius.
I've implemented it just because "it works fine" but honestly I am not getting why a Maximum filter of 1 pixel radius will not return me the same image in input.
