New image processing techniques, applied to white-light, pB , UV or EUV observations, reveal the fine-scale detail of the corona whilst accurately depicting the large-scale structure. The images produced by the techniques give new insights into the structure of streamers, are useful to unravel the complex topology of the solar maximum corona, and can help make connections between coronal and solar disk features. CMEs are seen in striking de- tail out to ˜18R . The quality of imaging produced by missions such as Solar Orbiter have a strong influence on the impact of that mission, and the solar remote sensing instrumentation, in particular the EUV imager and coro- nagraph, can maximize their scientific effectiveness by employing the new processing techniques.
