Hi Ranchers,

Is their any way to store Image annotation in separate file (no on image) using ImageJ.?
Does any plug in available for that ?



Thanking You,

What exactly do you mean by annotation? Something the user enters, like overlaid text? Or do you have some other plugin that generates those?

Yes exactly , user can annoted with overlaid text, draw point, draw rectangle , oval etc.

And I want to only that layer of image to seperate out and store without changing original image .

and again load Image with user annotation when ever requested.

How would I save that annotation may be in another image or other format ?



Thanking You,

ImageJ does not have a concept of "layers" like Photoshop does, so you wouldn't be able to use the builtin text support for this.

I'm not aware if a plugin that does this, but since ImageJ is open source, you could rip out the code that handles text, make that a plugin, and replace the part that performs the actual drawing on the image with something that stores it in a text file.

Hi Ulf ,


Thanks for reply.

In ImageJ, We can record macro that can store all annotation done by user and save as file.
But how can i achieve this by programming in background ?
Any link for that ?

Thanks
