I want to take an image file (eg tiff) and convert it to a spreadsheet (csv, or whatever) such that each pixel becomes a cell with a numeric value for that pixel.
I have googled it, and everyone is trying to sell me OCR software, that is certainly not what I want.
I will be editing the image beforehand, so can convert it to any format required, and can crop it down to a managable size.
It's mainly greyscale I'm interested in, and could do the little bit of colour that I will need as 3 separate files (one per colour channel) .
I will be doing statistical analysis on the spreadsheet later. I could likelly knock somthing together in java to do it, especially given that this is a proof of concept for a (much) later programming project, but that really feels like far too much hastle for what should be a simple task.
