Adding timestamp to a stack containing deleted frames

akp19
Hi everyone!
I have a time lapse series to which I need to add the timestamp (from images-stacks-label). However I need to delete some frames in this series as the images are unfocused at times.
Can someone please tell me if ImageJ can take into consideration these deleted time points and add the timestamp accordingly?
For example if I have a 5 minute movie with 20 seconds in between each frame then I have 16 frames in total (assuming the first frame is 0 seconds). Then in this case, frame 4 will be 60 seconds and frame 5 will be 80 seconds. If I then delete frame 5, the new frame 5 should then actually show 100 seconds (because it is by default frame 6 as per the original movie).
How should I go about this? I do not want to add blank frames because a) they will look strange and b) I have a really big movie and if I delete many frames I will manually have to add those many blank frames.
Could someone please guide me to a simple solution for this?
Thanks a lot!

Hi Aishwarya,

Would it be possible for you to simply add the timestamp first and then delete the out of focus frames?  

Timestamps added with Image -> Stacks -> Timestamper are deleted along with the frame, but do not "reset" to close the gap, so if, in your example frame 4 is 60 sec. and frame 5 is 80 sec. and frame 6 is 100 sec. and you then delete frame 5, it will take its timestamp with it, leaving a time gap from frame 4 (still 60 sec.) and the new frame 5 (still 100 sec.).  

I'm running Fiji with ImageJ 1.51h in Win7 and this works for me.

Best,
Christine
