Create synthetic image

fabrice senger-2
Dear all,
I would like to generate a synthetic image from an excel file in which I
have x, y and intensity... I went trough Google search and couldn't find a
straightforward answer so far

Re: Create synthetic image

Herbie
Dear Fabrice,

if you can arrange the data in the form of an intensity array, i.e.
without explicit x and y values, then you can import the data to ImageJ
as a text image.

Regards

Herbie

If you save the file as text (any delimiter), you can open the file in ImageJ and write a macro to get the text into a string, split the string into an array, convert the text to numbers, and use putPixel() to draw them into an image.

First, you probably need to convert the .xlsx file to .csv.  This will make
it easier for the next step.  Excel will do this for you.

Second, you will need to write (or find someone to write for you) a very
simple program.  I would use Java, but perhaps it can be done as a macro.

This would be easy for anyone with basic Java-plugin skills, but is at the
boundary of “general purpose” and “custom code”.  I estimate < half a day
to deliver a tested and documented solution.  Most of the time would be
spent nailing down details (are x,y,value integers or reals?  What are the
ranges of each? Etc.)

If you can’t find anyone local to write this, contact me off list.

One of the main reasons I like ImageJ is the ease of extending it for
custom situations like this.  ImageJ users who do not have easy access to a
Java programmer are missing out on much of the power of ImageJ.

Hi Michael,
putPixel() is the java method which has the corresponding macro method setPixel(x, y, value):
https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/developer/macro/functions.html#setPixel
Also your described method will indeed work, I would similarly save the file as text but with the extension ".tsv".
In this case by opening it within ImageJ, it will right away be in the form of a table from which it is possible to work right away the picture out (i.e. without creating the arrays).
Have a nice week-end,
Philippe

Re: Create synthetic image

Silas Leavesley
I know it's not ImageJ, but this is really easy to do in MATLAB using the
image save command.  Just copy and paste the Excel data into a new variable
and then save it as an image.  This functionality might be available in
Octave as well.

Best regards,

Silas

Please excuse me for butting in, but you can also save the Excell file as a TXT or CSV and then load it into Fiji/ImageJ as a text image.

You can create a relatively simple macro that opens the excel file as a table and converts it into an image. The following example macro opens the blobs sample images, uses Analyze>Tools>Save XY Coordinates to save it as an xyz table, opens the table and converts it into a 32-bit image.

-wayne

  run("Blobs (25K)");
  run("Select All");
  path = getDir("downloads")+"xyz-table.csv";
  run("Save XY Coordinates...", "save=&path");
  close;
  open(path);
  x = Table.getColumn("X");
  y = Table.getColumn("Y");
  z = Table.getColumn("Value");
  Array.getStatistics(x, ymin, xmax);
  Array.getStatistics(y, ymin, ymax);
  newImage("Untitled", "32-bit black", xmax+1, ymax+1, 1);
  for (i=0; i<x.length; i++)
     setPixel(x[i], y[i], z[i]);
  resetMinAndMax;

It's trivial to import a csv into R and relatively easy to export it in a
form readable by IJ.  R is free and works with Windows.  Can you describe
the intensity values and location data?  I might be willing to provide an R
script - gratis.

Re: Create synthetic image

CARL Philippe (LBP)
In reply to this post by Wayne Rasband-2
Dear Wayne,
Thanks a lot for your interesting macro which brings me up two questions.
First I was convinced (up to now at least) that in order to be opened as a table, a file needs to have the extension ".tsv".
But in your example the file can be opened as such by having the extension ".csv" and this whether it's separator is a coma or tabulation.
So is this rule about the ".tsv" wrong or did it evolve lately ?
Also the "save=&path" on the line 4 of your macro obviously replaces "save="+path.
But can this & only be used following an = sign or in some other cases?
Because within the following macro:
        str = "test";
        print("show the &str");
the & is interpreted as an element of the string and not as introducing a parameter.
My best regards,
Philippe

Hi Philippe,

concerning:
 > Also the "save=&path" on the line 4 of your macro obviously replaces
"save="+path.
 > But can this & only be used following an = sign or in some other cases?
 > Because within the following macro:
 > str = "test";

introducing a parameter.

In my experience, the &variableName notation is restricted to cases
where the macro fills in values into what would be a dialog in
interactive mode, and the macro argument String has 'key=value' pairs.
The 'print' command has no interactive equivalent with a dialog, and
there are no 'key=value' pairs.

Concerning:
 > First I was convinced (up to now at least) that in order to be opened

 > But in your example the file can be opened as such by having the

I am not sure that I understood your question correctly, but both csv
(comma-separated values) and tsv (tab-separated values) can be read into
a Results Table. In both cases, 'Open' opens them as Results Table.
ImageJ takes the extension to determine which separator to use.

In the current case, it seems that the file extension in "Save XY
Coordinates..." determines which separator to use.
With Save XY Coordinates...", this 'auto detection' of the separator
unfortunately only works in the dialog-less version where the image has
a selection (If there is no selection and one gets the dialog, for some
reason it always uses tabs).

---
By the way, for me it is a bit confusing to find "Save XY coordinates"
saving the pixel values is in Analyze>Tools, while "File>Save As>XY
Coordinates" writes the selection coordinates, not the pixel values.

We don't have to base our knowledge on mere experience here, the usage
of & in option strings is also officially documented:

https://imagej.net/ij/developer/macro/macros.html#run

requires adding "&" to the variable name in the options string:

Dear all,

when I save my excel file as txt and next modify the extension to tsv (as
suggested by Philippe, merci) the file opens in imageJ as a result table,
using the code provided by Wayne (thank you) allows me to create an image
from this table.

That's just great,

Thank you all for this very nice thread,
Fabrice.
