Dialogue box “Paste” is used to paste a circle or square with selected size (diameter or side-length) and gray value on the current image, when clicking menu “Edit\Painting\Paste” in the “Image processing” window. The paste function is designed for manually creating phase or boundary masks. When press button “OK” the paste function is activated, and the “TJ” button is shown in the “Image processing” window. A paste action is done, when moving the mouse arrow with the shape to desired position and pressing left mouse. When pressing “TJ” button, the paste function is deactivated.

Note that the gray values 0 and 255 cannot be changed with this function. Usually, the linear transformation operation “Normalize” should be previously done, so that no pixel in the selected area has a gray value of 0 or 255.
