You know that annoying error when trying to write to an image stack in Matlab?

Image Stack Saver


For use with appended image stacks, e.g. most commonly stacked TIF files.
Some operating systems throw an error indicating that the file is
inaccessible at the time of write, which leads to a code fault and can be
very frustrating. This simple script fixes that issues, mainly on the
Windows operating system.

Im1 = the current image (matrix) you want to add to the stack

basename = is a string that specifices the file name, and potentially the
path of the stack to save to. Best practice is the put '.tif' at the end
of the file name.

fmax = maximum number of allowed failures, i.e. if the script attempts to
write to the file 'fmax' times and fails, it will give up. This prevents
entering an infinite loop. The default value is fmax = 10.

Any of the 'imwrite' parameters can be modified on line 38.
