-====== BacTrack User Tutorial ====== 
-BacTrack feature written and video tutorial: 
-===== Tutorial ===== 
-To start, either: ​                                                                                                                                             ​ 
-==== Setup new experiment ==== 
-                                                                                                                                        ​ 
-You must prepare, beforehand, three folders: red, green and blue (each containing image sequence of the appropriate channel). \\                              
-Images must be 8-bit PNGs, and must be named unanimously (having the same name, and increasing number at the end), e.g.:                                                                                                                                                                                              
-  *         ​prpdesGFPmCherryWag05prop01_32_white0000.png ​                                                                                                           
-  *         ​prpdesGFPmCherryWag05prop01_32_white0001.png ​                                                                                                           
-  *         ​prpdesGFPmCherryWag05prop01_32_white0002.png ​                                                                                                           
-  *         ​... ​                                                                                                                                                   ​ 
-Don't worry, ImageJ will do this for you (by deafault), if you say File->​Save As->​Image sequence. 
-Also, note that once you've processed the movie (i.e. performed cell segmentations) you can measure on a whole different set of images (typically original TIFFs), as long as the ROIs (cell selections) hit the same spot.                                                            
-These folders should not be moved afterwards (in this version) - the program will expect images to be at the same place when you (later) load the experiment. 
-Should you move them, you'll have to edit the experiment properties and set the new file locations. 
-In other words, images WILL NOT be saved to database, only the calculated/​defined ROIs, measurements etc.                                                  ​ 
-==== Load experiment ==== 
-Use Alt+2 or Experiment->​Load experiment. 
-Pick an existing experiment and wait for the experiment to load. 
-If you don't see the images on the R/G/B channels, that probably means that you haven'​t set up the folders right (see above), or you received a database from someone else and need to point the R/G/B folders to new locations. 
-Either way: 
-==== Edit experiment (settings) ==== 
-Once you've loaded the experiment you can change it's settings via Experiment->​Edit current experiment or Alt+4. \\ 
-You'll get a dialog like this one: 
-The most common use case for changing the experiment settings is when someone sends you his or hers database and adjoining image files. \\ 
-Since they'​ve probably stored the in the different folder (than you), you'll have to change this folder paths in order for the images to load. 
-==== Delete experiment ==== 
-To delete the experiment chose Alt+3 or Experiment->​delete.\\ 
-This will not delete the image files on your disk, just the records in the database pertaining to that experiment.
