Help with zooming cell profiler analyst classifier thumbnails


I am using cell profiler analyst to classify bacteria (red) related to actin (green). The issue I have is that the thumbnails that the classifier fetches are zoomed in way too much onto the bacteria (see first image attached). Ideally what I would like to have are thumbnails that are zoomed out enough for me to see how the bacteria are related to actin (see second attached image generated in image).

I have tried the zoom tool but all it does is enlarge or minimize the thumbnails. The only other option I have is to open the actual image and manually pick out the bacteria I want to classify. This is a lot of work as I have hundreds of images that need to be analyzed and cycling through the images with the desired bacteria phenotypes is time-consuming.



Hi @Leo_Mv,

Try opening your properties file in a text editor, scrolling down till you find the tile size and increasing the number found there. Then save the properties file and reopen and see if that solves your issue.

Specify the approximate diameter of your objects in pixels here.

image_tile_size = 50
