When opening the NanoScope Analysis software, a splashscreen temporarily comes up with an AFM image, providing a sampling of the types of materials and properties people image using Bruker's various SPM platforms.  Included on the splashscreen is a brief description of the image/sample and who is credited for the image.

How can I add my own images to the splashscreen pool of images (obviously just stored locally on my Bruker computer)?  And how can I include the text to go along with image?

Similarly, how can I submit an image(s) to Bruker for consideration to be included with deployment of new tools?

Hi Chris,

Add your images (image1.bmp or image2.tif) to the Bruker\NanoScopeAnalysis\SplashScreens directory.  You should also add a text file with the same name, but ending with .txt.bin as a caption (image1.txt.bin or image2.txt.bin).  When you look in the directory you should see some examples.  Please be sure to back up your image and caption files – the whole directory is overwritten when the software is upgraded.

If you have images that you would like to submit images for consideration as part of the software package, please send them to me at firstname dot lastname at  I'd love to see what you are doing with Nanoscope Analysis!
