Loading images via hyperlink



I would like to “load” images into CellProfiler using a hyperlink contained in an.XML file which also contains other metadata. The file comes from Perkin Elmer’s Opera Phenix. Is anyone able to do this. I am able to load the images by standard means, although dragging and dropping the URL doesn’t work. Thanks for any help. Lynn



I don’t think that’s possible or planned at the moment- sorry!


HI Beth,
Could you tell me what is the best case scenario I can achieve with regards to streamlining taking images from the Opera Phenix in CellProfiler?. Thanks, Lynn


For large experiments, we typically export the images from the Phenix then run a parsing script that parses all the XML metadata into a CSV suitable for using in CellProfiler’s LoadData module.
