MATLAB Format ImagesΒΆ

Previous versions of CellProfiler supported reading and writing of MATLAB format (.mat) images. MATLAB format images were useful for exporting illumination correction functions generated by CorrectIlluminationCalculate. These images could be loaded and applied to other pipelines using CorrectIlluminationApply.

This version of CellProfiler no longer supports exporting MATLAB format images. Instead, the recommended image format for illumination correction functions is NumPy (.npy). Loading MATLAB format images is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of CellProfiler. To ensure compatibility with future versions of CellProfiler you can convert your .mat files to .npy files via SaveImages using this version of CellProfiler.

See SaveImages for more details on saving NumPy format images.
