Images of scanning electron microscope are usually in the monochrome mode. A simple and user-friendly approach is proposed to improve the mechanical contrast of the scanning electron microscope grey images. Also, most colourization techniques involve image segmentation or region tracking, which tend to degrade the image with fuzzy or complex region boundaries. A technique is proposed, which is a hybrid between the Canny edge detection technique and the optimization technique. Compared with existing methods, the new Canny optimization technique gives satisfactory results for scanning electron microscope images.
