# This example shows how a nonlinear axis definition can be used to
# set up "probability axis" scaling on both the x and y axes.
# This is also known as "probit" scaling.
# We compare 3 treatments of an image file (Tux).
# They differ in the sigma value defining the normal distribution curve
# used for scaling.
# The 4th plot shows the original, unscaled image using linear axes.
