Starting at the upper left pixel, it goes down rows until it hits a new, unlabeled object. Then it labels all the pixels in it. Then it continues going down rows, and moving over columns until it has found all of the blobs. So the numbers are going from top to bottom and left to right, NOT left to right and top to bottom like you'd read a book.

You're welcome - thanks for accepting. Sometimes the confusion comes about, for example in your image -- you'd think the upper left blob should be #1. However if it started in column 75 but the blob below it started in column 74, then the one below it is slightly to the left of the one in the upper left, and so it would get detected first and be labeled #1. Then the one in the upper left would be #2 and the one in the lower left would be #3.
