Error while processing CorrectIlluminationCalculate

Hi,

I am using the CellProfiler tutorial images and workflow to explore the illumination correction approach, but I am unable to run it because of the following error message:

Error while processing CorrectIlluminationCalculate:
‘ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0xff in position 37: ordinal not in range(128)

Does anyone have any idea how this can be fixed? I am new to CellProfiler myself. It is run on the following system: macOS 10.14.6 (18G95)

Many thanks in advance,

Ralitsa

Hi RalitsaMadsen,
@bcimini
Which CellProfiler version are you using??

There are 4 piplines in the examples, which one are you trying?? Because I tried all the 4.
Expect “ExampleIlluminationCorrection_Example1_AllMethod” pipeline rest all seems to work fine. In this case I also encouter the similar error.

If you guys let me know what pipeline(s) fail for which version(s) of CellProfiler, we can figure if it is a bug, or just that the example pipelines need to be updated, in which case you can file an issue letting us know CellProfiler version, OS, which pipeline(s) are having problems, etc.

@bcimini:

I thave raised the issue.

Hope it will be resolved.
