I am importing an brightfield/grayscale image using loadimages, and get a memory error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “cellprofiler\pipeline.pyc”, line 309, in run
File “cellprofiler\modules\loadimages.pyc”, line 1770, in run
File “cellprofiler\modules\loadimages.pyc”, line 2366, in provide_image
File “cellprofiler\cpimage.pyc”, line 80, in init
File “cellprofiler\cpimage.pyc”, line 138, in set_image
The image is a 7MB jpg, I am not sure how it was captured or what file options are available. It is an image of several wells of a microtiter plate, not of cells.
Despite being a less accurate(‘lossy’) format, I am pretty sure that the jpg format will get me the data I need (it is a well-level analysis and requires a single measurement), but have tried resaving to other formats (as per suggestions in the CP manual), which greatly bloat the file size (10-20X). All formats still trigger the memory error.
I am running CP on a Windows laptop, other options exist but this is easiest for me.
Any suggestions on a direct solution or what to ask the colleague who sent me the image about file type/size options?
