I just released a new plugin that uses Bio-Formats to easily browse and open image series contained in files that can hold multiple images, like *.lif, *.czi or others.
The plugin can be obtained by activating my IBMP-CNRS Fiji update site.
For ImageJ1 users, you can get the RML_.jar file directly from Index of /Mutterer/plugins but you’ll also need the latest ActionBar from the same location, and latest BioFormats jar file ( Download (31.64 MB)).
- Start “Read My Lifs” and you’ll be presented with a small window.
- You can drag and drop LIF or CZI files on it, which will create an image stack with thumbnails of all series in that file. You can leave this small window open, scroll through it, and open any series by double clicking on the thumbnail.
- This saves you from either opening all series, which can bloat your workspace, or having to repeatedly go through the bioformats options and/or series dialog.
I hope you find this useful!.
