Read an inForm component_data.tif file. If the file contains multiple resolutions or other data, keep only the full-resolution component images, extract the component names from the image descriptions, and return a named list of image matrices.

read_components(path)

## Arguments

path Path to the component_data.tif file.

## Value

A named list of matrices, one for each component.

## Details

Images are oriented to match the coordinates in a cell seg data file, i.e. (0, 0) at the top left and the row corresponding to Y and column corresponding to X.

Limited to 1x1 fields due to limitations in the tiff package. Install the Akoya Biosciences fork of the tiff package to remove this limitation.
