What is ImageJ?
ImageJ is an open source image processing program for multidimensional image data with a focus on scientific imaging.
What can ImageJ do?
- A user interface with functions to load, display, and save images.
- A wealth of image analysis techniques, including image processing, colocalization, deconvolution, registration, segmentation, tracking, visualization and much more.
- An extension mechanism including support for plugins and macros.
- A vibrant, diverse, and helpful user community that gives rise to insightful scientific exchanges.
ImageJ's extensibility is truly the root of its effectiveness: many advanced image-processing methods are not provided by the core application, but rather made available as third-party plugins via update sites written by specialists in the corresponding fields.
