Fiji flips .fits files vertically

#1

We’ve been editing datasets and .fits images opened in Fiji are always flipped vertically, in comparison to .tif images of exactly the same data (i.e. the same image in two different formats). Has anyone else come across this bug or know what is actually happening?


#2

This is most likely an issue with Bio-Formats, as .fits files are opened using the Bio-Formats importer.

Hi @al5612ki

I can confirm what @imagejan says. An initial fix was proposed in https://github.com/openmicroscopy/bioformats/pull/2375 but did not make it into a release. I’ve filed https://trello.com/c/AVcMHGWD/521-fits-files-flipped-vertically to re-raise the issue.

Thanks for bringing it back to our attention.
