Calling Pairwise Stitch plugin from a script

Alex-2
I'm trying to figure out the syntax for calling the Pairwise Stitch plugin from a Python Script.
I can get the plugin to react but I can't figure out the syntax for the input arguments.  I tired the macro recorder but its hints don't seem to be helpful.
I've tried: 
imp1 = IJ.openImage('/path/to/image1.tif')
imp2 = IJ.openImage('/path/to/image2.tif')IJ.runPlugIn('plugin.Stitching_Pairwise', 'imp1', 'imp2')
That doesn't complain about argument 1 not being a string or less than 2 images being open, but I can't figure out how to pass the additional input arguments to setup the plugin, or how to return the result.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
ThanksAlex

Re: Calling Pairwise Stitch plugin from a script

Alex-2
 I'm getting closer but still not there yet ... 
In the FIJI script editor I can do 

from ij import IJ

import ij.plugin

imp1 = IJ.openImage('/path/to/composite0.tif')

imp2 = IJ.openImage('/path/to/composite1.tif')

imp3 = IJ.createImage("Stitched","RGB",1,1,1)

IJ.run(imp3, "Pairwise stitching", "first_image=" + imp1.getTitle() + " second_image=" + imp2.getTitle() + " fusion_method=[Linear Blending] fused_image=result.tif check_peaks=20 ignore display_fusion compute_overlap subpixel_accuracy x=-1056.3646 y=-5.4877 registration_channel_image_1=[Only channel 1] registration_channel_image_2=[Only channel 1]")

That works.  However, in my IDE IJ.run returns

Unrecognized command: "Pairwise stitching"

So I'm trying 
from ij import IJ
import ij.plugin

imp1 = IJ.openImage('/Users/alex/Desktop/test_files/D12/merged/composite0.tif')


imp2 = IJ.openImage('/Users/alex/Desktop/test_files/D12/merged/composite1.tif')


imp3 = IJ.createImage("Stitched","RGB",1,1,1)
IJ.runPlugIn('plugin.Stitching_Pairwise', imp3.getTitle(),
             'first_image=' + imp1.getTitle() +
             ' second_image=' + imp2.getTitle() +
             ' fusion_method=[Linear Blending]' +
             ' fused_image=result.tif' +
             ' check_peaks=20' +
             ' ignore display_fusion' +
             ' compute_overlap' +
             ' subpixel_accuracy' +
             ' x=-1056.3646 y=-5.4877' +
             ' registration_channel_image_1=[Only channel 1]' +
             ' registration_channel_image_2=[Only channel 1]')

This seems to execute but the result is not in imp3.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Calling Pairwise Stitch plugin from a script

Fred Damen
Greetings,

I do not use Python but...

You refer to the name of the plugin slightly differently in each case, the
name needs to pass a comparison to be considered found.

String in the argument parameter need to be enclosed in [], especially if
they include spaces.

I suspect that the image titles are not the variable names. Usually some
form of the file name.

Fred

Re: Calling Pairwise Stitch plugin from a script

Alex-2
 

Fred, 
Thanks ... 

From what I can tell the IJ.run takes a string that is a command (https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/developer/api/ij/IJ.html#run-ij.ImagePlus-java.lang.String-java.lang.String-), where IJ.runPlugIn takes a string that is a className (https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/developer/api/ij/IJ.html#runPlugIn-ij.ImagePlus-java.lang.String-java.lang.String-.  
I'll give the string formatting a try per your suggestion.  What name do you suggest using other than the title for the imp objects?
Alex

Re: Calling Pairwise Stitch plugin from a script

Fred Damen
Greetings Alex,

I do not seem to have this plugin, although, how I would proceed to
resolve your issue is...

Plugins>Utilities>Find Command...
Allows you to find what ImageJ thinks the command string is.

Generally I cheat and turn on recording
Plugins>Macros>Record...
and run the command that I intend to put in my java plugin.  There is a
selection for the language on the top of the recording window, albeit no
Python.

The Java code that will process your IJ.run or IJ.runPlugIn is available
online, I usually google 'imagej java classname' (in this case IJ for
classname) and the documentation and color coded source code is generally
found.  From a cursory look it seems as though your trying to use:

/** Runs the specified plugin using the specified image. */
public static Object runPlugIn(ImagePlus imp, String className, String arg)

so I assume that something like
IJ.runPlugIn(imp3, 'plugin.Stitching_Pairwise', arguments);
is what you are looking for.

I suspect that you should be able to call the Stitching_Pairwise.run or
its other methods directly, n.b., google imagej java Stitching_Pairwise.

Enjoy,

Fred
