How to change and select Lispix directories

JPEG and TIFF images can be RGB. GIF and TIFF images can be false color. In either case, Lispix converts the image to HSV, and uses the value component as the 8-bit gray level image.

Evans 256x256x16 bit images encoded as RGB TIFF are un-encoded.

i/o  /  import from file  These operations can be interrupted by closing the progress bar.  If importing or opening a file, just close the resulting cube window, which will be blank with an X across it.  If exporting, the partially written file will be deleted automatically. April 6, 2004.

If the vector data cube is too large to fit into memory, you may be able to load part of it by decreasing the height parameter (leaving the width and depth unchanged)- thus reading in only a fraction of the total rows.  If the image cube is too large, you can read in a subset of the images by decreasing the depth parameter -- but leave the height and width parameters unchanged.
