I am writing a script in python to perform a segmentation. I noticed, though, that I cannot use some packages because when I extract the shape of my images using img.shape, the number of channels is not at the end as expected but it is in second position.
As an example: I have an image composed of 250 pixels in xy, 50 slices and 2 channels.
from tifffile import imread img = imread("image.tif") print(img.shape)
I would expect to get as an outcome (50, 255, 255, 2).
Instead, I get (50, 2, 255, 255)
Does somebody know why the channel value is not returned as the last value?
I need to correct this because I use a python package whose functions may extract the last value as the number of channels and use this info later for computations. Does somebody know how I can fix this?
