Scrambed LUT

Aaron Bell
Hello--
 
I have an RGB image that I'd like to convert to an 8-bit color image but
with an unscrambled LUT. By unscrambled, the colors are organized based on a
spectrum or colors sorted using an equation like the histogram's gray
formula (gray=0.299red+0.587green+0.114blue) or similar. I can't seem to do
this with ImageJ's built-in converter; the resulting LUT is scrambled. I
know converting to 8-bit grayscale unscrambles the LUT, but then I lose the
color information.
 
I want to do this so I can apply a threshold to darker areas of the image
for later measuring.
 
Any ideas?
 
Thanks,
Aaron

This is an interesting problem.  The conventional 8bit indexed color
lut is indeed a complex structure.  Would it be simpler to separate
the channels (i.e. use the Image>Color>RGB Split) and see about
isolating the features you want using the separate colors?  You could
then recombine them to result in a modified RGB image.
