  1. A very good tip for those not affected by colour blindness is to change your image into grey-scale. If you can see a difference (due to the degree of obscurity of the chosen colour) then a colour blind person will be able to see it, too. For example, if you take the image of the oocyte top left and turn it into grey-scale you will no longer see a difference between the yellow an green regions – and this is what colour-blind people will experience with red/green image.
