Changes in version 2.1.1 (rev 6c2d896)

Issue numbers cited below correspond to those on Github (https://github.com/CellProfiler/CellProfiler).

Features added

  • Improved display of notifications when user tries to analyze images, but the project configuration does not produce any image sets (Issue #1055)
  • Better error messages if File -> Open Recent and other try to open a non-existent file (Issue #668)
  • Added a preference that controls the default maximum Java heap size (Issue #787)
  • Added ctrl-p shortcut to save the current pipeline to a file.
  • Added an “—omero-credentials” command-line switch to let CellProfiler authenticate with Omero in headless mode (issue #1052)
  • Omero URLs can contain credentials
  • Use the color-picker setting to pick colors in OverlayOutlines, DisplayDataOnImage and ExportToDatabase.
  • If a module is marked as “paused” for test mode and the project or pipeline is saved and reloaded, the module remains marked as “paused” on loading. (Issue #960)
  • The “-o” command-line switch will create the indicated output folder if it doesn’t exist (Issue 1025)
  • Show the group number and index of the image set within the group in the title of module display windows for pipelines that use grouping. (issue #1101)
  • Added a preference to optionally save the pipeline and / or file list when saving a project (Issue #1160)


  • Added setting that allows user to create an output image of just the numeric data on a black background (issue #978)


  • Issue #1054 – added a button that toggles outlines off and on.
  • Issue #1105 – added a keyboard shortcut to toggle between showing objects as outlines or using an alpha-blend of the image and colored object


  • Issue #1003 – warn user if SQLite is used with the CreateBatchFiles module (you can’t update a SQLite database that’s open in another process)
  • Issue #1004 – added a setting that asks you if you want to use an HTTP prepend (previously, you’d leave the text blank to indicate that)


  • Added a warning dialog that is displayed if your pipeline tries to overwrite a .csv file along with a setting that lets you disable the warning and silently overwrite the .csv file (Issue #965)

Load Data, Metadata

  • If a row in a .csv file has more fields than there are headers, ignore the extra fields instead of preventing the user from using the file (issue #853)


  • Better error messages if matching by order and NamesAndTypes finds more images in one channel than another (Issue #714)

Behavior changed

  • The default choice for file output location for ExportToSpreadsheet and UntangleWorms has been changed to the default output folder to match the behavior of ExportToDatabase, SaveImages, CreateBatchFiles and MeasureNeurons (issue #1070)
  • Removed the “-w” switch. Use “-p” for both pipelines and projects – CellProfiler will figure out what to do based on file type. (Issue #1072)
  • On OS/X, “.cpproj” is appended to the file name entered in File / Save Project As unless the filename already ends in “.cpproj”. Similarly File / Export / Pipeline appends “.cppipe” (issue #918)
  • The ClassifyPixels module is loaded on platforms that do not support it, but it displays an error status. (Issue #1073)
  • ImageMath: The log-transform option now performs log2(x+1) which transforms the range, 0-1, to the range 0-1. The former calculation is preserved as “Log Transform (legacy)” and all old pipelines use that instead of the new log-transform calculation.
  • IdentifyPrimaryObjects / IdentifySecondaryObjects – Do not smooth the image when thresholding by a measurement or using manual-mode.
  • IdentifyPrimaryObjects – (Issue # 1133) IdentifyPrimaryObjects fills holes twice – once after thresholding and once after separating touching objects. FillHoles now fills holes that would have not otherwise been filled, for instance if you have a confluent field of cells, all holes in the thresholded image would be filled by the corrected version. We addressed this in two ways:
    • The FillHoles option will not fill holes larger than the maximum cell diameter, squared. FillHoles is designed to fill holes within objects so it’s inappropriate to fill a hole that is larger than any potential object that could contain that hole.
    • The user can choose to never fill holes, to fill holes only in the final segmentation or fill holes both after thresholding and segmentation. Old pipelines will fill holes both after thresholding and segmentation.

Features removed

  • Semi-pointless tooltip removed from module settings panel (issue #1065)
  • The option to join small objects has been removed from IdentifyPrimaryObjects. The option is present in 2.1.0, but IdentifyPrimaryObjects had no code to join small objects and behavior was the same whether or not the option was selected.
  • Removed non-functional option in SaveImages to save image displays.

Bugs fixed

  • Issue #1166 – upgraded CellProfiler’s support for Paramorama to conform to the 2.1.x API.
  • Issue #1157 – Use path rather than directory + file name when loading project files. In some instances, for Linux, directory + file != path.
  • Issue #1152 – added work-around for illegal Unicode characters in OME metadata affecting some .LSM files.
  • Issue #1120 – always capture FileLocation, Series and Frame metadata.
  • Issue #1050, 1046 – Users can extract color images from image stacks with both C and either Z or T data.
  • Issue #1014, 1044 – Outlines are now composited with the images they overlay just before being drawn. This fixes a bug that did not correctly normalize images with outlines drawn over them (for instance, changing to log-intensity in IdentifyPrimaryObjects now works, when it did not previously).
  • Issue #1048 – Reimplement caching of Bio-Formats image readers. Image reader caching was inadvertently removed in 2.1.0, resulting in poor performance when opening stacks and movies. 2.1.1 has an improved and efficient caching scheme.
  • Issue #1018 – added missing display windows for the CreateWebPage, SendEmail, ExportToDatabase and ConserveMemory modules
  • Issue #1059 – prevent user from moving test-mode slider beyond the module after the last one executed and add a visual indicator of where that point is.
  • Issue #859 – During post-run processing, change the status bar to inform the user that CP is performing post-run processing (and indicate that this will take an indeterminate amount of time)
  • Issue #860 – Fixed a bug in the plate viewer that would cause CP to segfault on the Mac if the plate viewer was reopened after it was closed.
  • Issue #989 – prevent verbose display of log messages in analysis mode
  • Issue #1005 – prevent segfault if plate viewer tries to display a .mat file
  • Issue #1008, 1121 – fixed memory leak that eats up Java heap space each time you reload a project.
  • Issue #1010 – Fixed bug that prevented pipelines from being loaded if some modules couldn’t be loaded and the pipeline was saved with image set information.
  • Issue #1019 – Fix bug in module setting display code that prevented update of a setting’s error status.
  • Issue #1021 – Exit test mode if user adds files to or removes files from the file list.
  • Issue #1049 – Eliminate the “Continue processing” button from the error dialog if CellProfiler encounters an unrecoverable error during analysis.
  • Issue #1112 – use the OME Tiff reader instead of the baseline Tiff reader to read .tif files with OME XML metadata annotations.


  • Mask areas in the output image that were masked in the input image (issue #1092)


  • Fix exception thrown when displaying measurements containing NaN values (issue #1084)


  • Issue #1047 – Fixed a bug that resulted in a blank outlines image produced by EditObjectsManually
  • Issue #917 – more graceful exit from analysis mode if user cancels during EditObjectsManually.
  • Issue #1098 – fixed bug that caused objects to be offset by one pixel from their expected location.
  • Issue #1099 – fixed bug that would create overlapping objects when user had requested that objects should not overlap.


  • Issue #966 – if user switches from per-object tables to one object table, use “DROP VIEW” to drop the single object view of the per-object tables.
  • Issue #1022 – for MySQL InnoDB, take a lock on the experiment table before doing per-imageset updates in order to lock out other CP instances until the transaction is complete.


  • Issue #1139 – ensure that the ImageNumber field is always saved in the image .csv

IdentifyPrimaryObjects, IdentifySecondaryObjects

  • Use a threshold correction factor of 1 (instead of the value recorded in the undisplayed threshold correction factor setting) when using the automatic thresholding method (issue #1071).
  • Turning on the “FillHoles” option can cause IdentifyPrimaryObjects / IdentifySecondaryObjects to merge two adjacent objects (for no good reason) in rare cases (issue #1086, #1116)


  • Fixed a situation that sometimes generated an exception if an object that was present in IdentifyPrimaryObjects was filtered out because it was touching the edge (issue #1097)


  • Issue #1016 – clear the file filter cache when a pipeline is reloaded. Files were being incorrectly marked as filtered or unfiltered after a pipeline load.

LoadImages / LoadData

  • Issue #1057 – compute MD5 hash on the file, not on the image data.


  • Issue #1115 – fix bug that caused an exception to be thrown when all edge pixels are masked


  • Issue #867 – always make the Series and Frame metadata items available to the user


  • Fixed the way the macro text box setting is displayed so that it correctly sizes and resizes as you type in more macro text (issue #987)
  • RunImageJ can cause the OS/X version of CellProfiler to hang if a command is run and the current image is retrieved (issue #1127)
  • Better handling of command parameters (issue #1145 and others)
  • Use of batch mode for ImageJ 1.x macros to improve handoff of and retrieval of the current image within ImageJ (issue #1172)


  • Issue #639, 1104 – reversed order of primary/secondary objects when writing relationships during phase 2 of LAP.
  • Issue #1109 – save the Kalman feature measurements as floating point values instead of truncating them to integers.

Changes in version 2.1.0 (rev 0c7fb94) released on 2014-01-24

Issue numbers cited below correspond to those on Github (https://github.com/CellProfiler/CellProfiler).

General changes

  • Module displays use table UI element to display table data, enabling scrolling and column resizing.
  • The default input and output directories have been deprecated in many instances and absolute paths are the preferred method for referencing file locations.
  • Binary settings changed from checkboxes to yes/no radio buttons (issue #872).
  • Image intensity interpolation options – users can choose nearest neighbor interpolation to see an image as pixels or choose spline interpolation to synthesize a sub-pixel resolution visualization (issue #457).
  • More restrictive names for images, objects and features (issue #777) – We have decided to restrict names for images, objects and features to alphanumerics and the underbar character (e.g. “Texas_Red” is legal, but “DNA, DAPI” is not). This lets us use the name as it is as a database column name and internally in many contexts which would otherwise require an escape encoding. This change will break pipelines with names that violate the convention (issue #364).
  • Plate viewer data tool added.
  • Object relationships table – relationships discovered by modules such as RelateObjects, TrackObjects (frame-to-frame relationships), IdentifySecondaryObjects/IdentifyTertiaryObjects and MeasureObjectNeighbors are recorded in a table of object-object relationships to allow accurate recording of cell lineage and many-many relationships that cannot be recorded using a single measurement on one object (issue #790, #520).
  • ImageJ plugins that reference the AWT can now be used with CellProfiler on the OS/X platform (issue #696).
  • Add “Open output folder” button to “Analysis complete” dialog (issue #734).
  • Test mode: Initially select current image set in image set chooser dialog (issue #658).
  • Improvements to module list panels – custom UI, green progress arrow indicates how far pipeline can run (issue #729).
  • Modules can be disabled – click on the green checkmark to the left of a module name to disable or re-enable it. Disabled modules will not be run in analysis or test mode (issue #468).
  • Added option to save individual subplots within a display (issue #633).
  • Improvements to appearance of panel resizing drag bars (issue #590).
  • Pipeline files are now saved with the .cppipe extension by default.
  • Added CellProfiler file associations for pipeline and project files – opening a pipeline or project in Windows Explorer or OS/X Finder launches CellProfiler.
  • CellProfiler development tutorial example files added.
  • Regular expression editor: added a “guess” button that compares the example file name against patterns generated by several microscope vendors and suggests an appropriate regular expression that matches.
  • TIFF files are saved with the “.tif” extension (issue #315).
  • CellProfiler reports two pieces of revision information (in pipeline and about-box): Timestamp of repository check-in (format is YYYYMMDDHHMMSS), GIT hash

Restart CellProfiler and the Sampling menu will be available. Details for running Paramorama are available on its website.

Bugs fixed in version 10977 released on 2011-03-03

Fixes that may result in changes in measurements

The following fixes may result in different measurement values than produced by r10415

  • img-1201 - changed algorithm that adds 1/2 bit of noise when calculating Otsu backgrounds. This may result in slightly higher background estimates (~ 1%) and therefore lower areas and integrated intensities.
  • img-1183 - The code for measuring lower quartile, median and upper quartile intensity per object was changed. The code now orders the values, takes the ones above and below the 25%, 50% and 75% and performs a weighted average. The prior version used the value at or immediately below 25%, 50% and 75%. Values for Intensity_LowerQuartile_Intensity, Intensity_Median_Intensity and Intensity_UpperQuartile_Intensity as calculated by the new release will be higher than those in the previous release. As an example, Intensity_LowerQuartile_Intensity_CorrBlue for well A04 in the SBS example data set was 0.12% higher on average in the new version.
  • img-1172 - Added AreaShape_Compactness measurement: 2 * pi * radius of gyration**2 / area
  • img-1188 - Added AreaShape_Center_X and AreaShape_Center_Y which are the coordinates of the point within the object that is farthest away from the object's edge
  • img-1210 - Added Classify_PctObjectsPerBin, Classify_NumObjectsPerBin measurements to ClassifyObjects
  • img-1300 - The Align module handles cropping slightly differently than in the previous version. There are three modes: Crop to aligned region which is most similar to asking the previous version to crop images, Keep size which is most similar to not asking to crop and Pad images which is new. The measurement names have changed slightly and the first image's alignment may be adjusted in the Keep size mode, resulting in different object positions in the output.
