Hi dear creators of QCPA

Thank you for building up such a comprehensive tool for quantifying and analyzing animal color patterns.

I have encountered a small question when I use this toolbox for analyzing my data. When I looked at the outputs from particle analysis (the first summary table, which shows metrics for each cluster but not for the individual patches making up the cluster), I got difficulties in understanding those metrics. Although tried to search in the published paper, supplementary document and the user manual, I failed to find out how those metrics were defined and/or calculated. Would you mind kindly provide some references regarding how they were defined and calculated, so that I can reach a better understanding on those parameters hence facilitating my further analysis?

I really appreciate your help.
