Image manipulation

The example below shows how to load an image and apply a filter. It also show how to access its internals. Look at the complete API of the IJ package.

from ij import *
from ij.process import *
from ij.measure import *
# we open the file manually. Generate  ImagePlus object
imp = IJ.openImage(file)
print dir(imp) # check image manipulation methods
# display it
print imp.getWidth()
# do manipulations with the clone
imp.getProcessor().setThreshold(174, 174, ImageProcessor.NO_LUT_UPDATE),"Convert to Mask",""),"Watershed", "")
# get all the pixels
pix = imp.getProcessor().getPixels()

Next we can perform a detailed analysis of images. For example, one can create a histogram:

from ij import *
imp = IJ.openImage(""), "Histogram", "")
stats = imp.getStatistics()
print stats.histogram

One can extract data from image and perform manipulation. Then a new modified array can be used to build a new image. Look at the example:

 1: # Images | P | 1.7 | S.Chekanov |  Subtract the minimal value to an image
 3: from ij import *
 4: from ij.process import *
 5: from ij.measure import *
 6: from ij.gui import *
 7: from java.lang import Math
 9: imp = IJ.openImage("")
10: #
12: # get pixel array
13: pix = imp.getProcessor().convertToFloat().getPixels()
14: print pix
15: # find out the minimal pixel value
16: min = reduce(Math.min, pix)
18: # create a new pixel array with the minimal value subtracted
19: pix2 = map(lambda x: x - min, pix)
21: img1=ImagePlus("min subtracted", FloatProcessor(imp.width, imp.height, pix2, None))

Edge detection of images

In this example, let's detect edges of the image of Scavis logo. Below we show 2 examples: one reads this logo using the URL, and the second example reads this logo from local file.

The output of these scripts are below:

Note that it makes sense to convert the image into back-white. Also, one can swap the colors.

Below we will consider other topics, such as

  • Creating an image from a text file
  • Obtain/View histogram and measurements from an image
  • Removing bleeding from one channel to another
  • Subtract the minimal value to an image
  • Extract a specific color channel for a given time frame
  • Visualize any number of TIFF stacks in a single composite multi-color image stack
  • Sort all points into a chain by distance to each other
  • Correct illumination in a stack: apply the illumination of one slice to all others
  • Add a mouse listener to the canvas of every open image
  • Add a key listener to the canvas of every open image
  • Create a virtual stack from the TIF files present in a folder
  • Open the slices of a very large multi-image stack file one by one, and save each as a new image file
  • Apply a binary mask to every slice in an image stack
