Black images with ImageReader and Cell Image Factory


When loading images (8-bits or 16-bits tif, jpg...) with ImageReader and setting the "Image factory" parameter to "Cell Image Factory", I obtain completely black images. However, the dimensions and pixel types indicated seems correct.

Thank you


thanks for reporting this issue. I was able to reproduce the problem and we will look into it as soon as possible.



Hi A.K,

I fixed the problem with a workaround for now. CellImgs can be read now, though limited: subset selections will be ignored.

In the future we want to be able to read parts of big images on demand and in the course of this, CellImgs are going to be fully supported.

Please let me know if it doesn't work for you. The fix is available in the nightly-build update site (see for now.



Ok, It seems to work. Thank you !
