Importing Additional Image Volumes
Files in the Analyze and MINC Image formats must be loaded rather than imported.
Imported images must be 8- or 16-bit grayscale images in one of the following formats:
- uncompressed Tagged Image File Format (TIFF)
- zipped TIFF format
- Graphics Interchange Format (GIF)
- Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) format
- Bitmap format (BMP)
- Flexible Images Transport System (FITS) format
To import an additional image volume:
- From the main MultiTracer window "File" menu, choose "Import Volume Number" and select the
submenu number that corresponds to the slot into which you want to load the volume. The sixteen
available slots are arrayed in a four by four grid in the main MultiTracer window.
- Select the file that you want to open from the "Open" dialog box.
If the file is not in the current directory, the popup menu in the upper left of the dialogue
box will let you move up the directory tree, or you can double click on a subdirectory icon to
move down the directory tree.
- Once the file is selected, click the "Open" button in the dialogue box to load the file.
- Large files may take several seconds to load
- Once the file is loaded, the image should appear in the display region.
- If the additional image volume does not match the dimensions of the first image volume, it
will be discarded and an error message will appear.
File importing in MultiTracer relies on public domain Java classes in Wayne Rasband's ImageJ 1.29
program. If you want to help support importing of additional file formats into future versions
of MultiTracer, please consider contributing code to Wayne Rasband for incorporation into ImageJ.
