Severity: non-issue Keywords:

We have instructions for compiling Bio-Formats for use with ITK, but we would also like to document more specifically which FARSIGHT modules can make use of Bio-Formats, and current limitations (unsupported image types, architectures, etc.), including screenshots.

I updated to the latest codebase (FTK, ITK, and VTK), got FARSIGHT to compile, and updated the CMake cache files in the FTK codebase accordingly. Next, I need to make some updates to the bf-itk project. Then I can take some screenshots documenting how Bio-Formats works in the FARSIGHT tools.

Step-by-step tutorials with images documenting the use of Bio-Formats with FARSIGHT modules (Nucleus Editor and Trace Editor) can now be found here:

The main limitation found concerns FARSIGHT, in that images must have an 8-bit unsigned pixel type. This was documented in ticket 246.
