This command loads and displays images. An "Open image file" Dialog will appear. Select the image file you want in the dialog and click the [Open] button. The selected image file will be loaded and displayed in a new window. For more details see: Load and Save
This command closes the active image.
This command saves the active image by overwriting the old image file.
This command saves the active image in a new file. Enter a new name and select an image format in Dialog. Then click the [Save] button. For more details see: Load and Save
This command converts an image in a table data file to a FITS image file. To do the conversion, you must enter the following information.
The Open Dialog Choose the image in a table data file. Then enter the information needed to convert a table data to a FITS image file in the following dialogs.
First, enter the basic information needed to imaport a table data.
[Value]Enter the number of axis (NAXIS) and the number of data for each axis (NAIXSn). Then enter the following information.
[The conversion factor to a true physical value(the value of a zero point,BZERO)] Specify the true physical value for the count value of 0.
[The conversion factor to a true physical value(a scaling value,BSCALE)] Specify the scaling value for the true physical value.
[The kind of data]Choose the type of data. [Image Data] Choose when the data is an image data. [Spectrum Data] Choose when the data is a spectrum data.
[Arrangement of data]Choose the direction to read the data.
[Width Row] Choose when the information of an axis is aligned horizontally.
[Height Row] Choose when the information of an axis is aligned vertically.
[A pause of data]Choose what is used as a data separator in the data file.
[Fixed length] Select this when the data is separated by a certain length. Also enter the length in bytes.
[Character delimited] Select this when the data is separated by a certain character. Also enter that character.
[Tab delimited] Select this when the data is separated by tabs.
[Return]Choose whether to use return codes as data separators alongside with [A pause of data].
[treated as a pause] When there are return codes, use them as data separates.
[disregarded] Ignore the return codes and do not use them as data separator.
[File maker]Enter the name of the person that created the image file from the table data. This will be saved as the AUTHOR keyword in the FITS Header.
If you chose "spectral data" in the data type, you also have to enter the following information.
[number of a distributed axis]Enter the number for the dispersion axis here.
[Dispersion Axis Settings]Enter information about spectral data. For details about each item, see [FITS Header].
This command prints the active image. For more details see: Print
This command displays the active image as it will appear in print. For more details see: Print
This command opens a Dialog which allows you to determine the size of the printed image. For more details see: Print
This command opens a Dialog which allows you to choose the setting for your printer. For more details see: Print
This command open a Dialog which allows you to change the setting for Makali`i. For example, you can associates file extensions with Makali`i or can set Makali`i to be maximized on startup.
[Associate extension to Makali`i]This command associates file extensions with Makali`i. By associating file extensions with Makali`i, you can open images in Makali`i by double clicking the image file.
To associate files with Makali`i, click the appropriate box or boxes. Shut down and restart Makali`i. Association and disassociation take effect when Makali`i starts up.
The following extensions can be associated.
FITS (*.fit, *.fts, *fits) BMP/DIB (*.bmp, *.dib) Bitran (*.ccd, *.drk, *.flt, *.fdk) GIF (*.gif) JPEG (*.jpg, *.jpg) Mutoh (*.mtf, *.bin) PNG (*.png) TIFF (*.tif, *.tiff) RAW (*.raw)
To associate all of the above extensions with Makali`i, click the [All On] button.
In order to make an extension associated, it is necessary to log in by the account with an administrator's authority. It cannot relate, when logged in by account of the other authority.
[The Dialog of Graph and Photometry, Astrometry can be moved to the background of image window] In the check on this box, dialog of Graph and Aperture Photometry and Rectangle Photometry, Astrometry can be displayed behind image window. (It is necessary to reactivate this software.) However, It becomes impossible to display the image window maximizing.
Change procedure :
1)[The Dialog of Graph and Photometry, Astrometry can be moved to the background of image window] check box of "Preference" dialog is checked.
2)[OK] button of "Preference" dialog pushing.
3-1)Please reactivate only this software pushing [OK] button if message box "A restart of a Subaru Image Processor:makali`i reflects this setup." is displayed.
3-2)Please reboot this computerpushing [OK] button if message box "A reboot of a computer reflects this setup." is displayed.
4)The content set to started up this software is reflected.
[Maximize Makali`I and images when they are opend.]Check this box to maximize Makali`i on startup. It also serves to maximize images when they are opened. (It is necessary to reactivate this software.)
[FITS format is read bottom-up]Check this box to FITS format reading bottom-up. In so doing, origin of the pixel coordinates of the image window read by the FITS format becomes under the left. (It is necessary to reactivate this software.)
TipsIt is recommended for the image of the FITS format to make the lower left corner the origin of the pixel coordinates by the rule provided by the form. As for other general image formats(BMP format, TIFF format etc.), the upper left corner of the image becomes origin.
NoticeOnce extensions are associated with Makali`i, they become disassociated from their original applications. If you disassociate the extensions from Makali`i, they will not be associated with the original application.
This command quits Makali`i.
