Display window - IndentifyPrimaryObjects - upper right image


#1

Hello,

In CellProfiller manual, more specifically regarding the module IdentifyPrimaryObjects and the display window, it says about the Upper right image that “The identified objects shown as a color image where connected pixels that belong to the same object are assigned the same color (label image)”. For example in the image below I have the same color in several objects. This does not mean anything? The colors are just to individualize the objscts? Thank you.

Correct! There are a finite number of colors that we use in most of the color maps, when they repeat it doesn’t mean anything other than that you have more objects than colors.
