Opening multi tif files


I’m sure it is a stupid question, but I don’t get how you open multi tif files. Where do you specify the channels, the z-plane and the time? I’ve looked (probably not hard enough), but did not find it. Instructions for this should possibly be made more obvious?

Hi Marc,

Not a stupid question because stacks/movies display an annoyingly diverse set of standards!
On our tutorials page, there is this written out help: Loading image stacks and movies PDF].
Also, within CellProfiler itself, there is Help Menu->Creating a Project-> Loading Image Stacks and Movies.

Let us know if it is not clear! And there have been a couple recent fixes to Multi-page tifs, this one for example, so it may be a bug in Bioformats. If you think so, try out a trunk build.
