ImageJ1-ImageJ2 cheat sheet

This page summarizes translation of basic operations of ImageJ1 and ImageJ2 API. Based on the work of Robert Hasse, Scientific Computing Facility, MPI CBG Dresden.

Task ImageJ1 ImageJ2
Starting ImageJ
ij.ImageJ
ImageJ ij = new net.imagej.ImageJ();
ij.ui().showUI();
Show images
imagePlus.show()
ij.ui().show(testImg);
ImageJFunctions.show(testImg);
ImageJFunctions.wrap(testImg,"testImg").show();
Convert image types
ImagePlus imp = ImageJFunctions.wrap(img,"Title");
Img<T> realImg = ImageJFunctions.wrapReal(imp);
Img<FloatType> floatImg = ImageJFunctions.convertFloat(imp);
Img<FloatType> realImg2 = ImageJFunctions.wrap(imp);
Show regions
imagePlus.setRoi(roi)
Img<BitType> mask; // = ...
ImagePlus maskImp =ImageJFunctions.wrap(mask, "mask");
// threshold the mask to get an ROI
ImageProcessor imageProcessor = maskImp.getProcessor();
imageProcessor.setThreshold(128,128,ImageProcessor NO_LUT_UPDATE);
Roi roi = new ThresholdToSelection().convert(imageProcessor);
imagePlus.setRoi(roi);
Run plugins
IJ.run(imagePlus,"Normalisation","");
ij.command().run(ImageNormalizerIJ2Plugin.class,false, new Object[]{"input", img, "ij", ij});
IJ.run(imagePlus,"Normalisation (IJ2)", "");
// don't forget the IJ legacy dependency
<dependency>
  <groupId>net.imagej</groupId>
  <artifactId>imagej-legacy</artifactId>
</dependency>
Define plugins
public class ImageNormalizerPlugin implements PluginFilter {
resources/plugins.config:
Pluins>Filtering, "Normalisation", NormalizerPlugin
}
@Plugin(type = Command.class, menuPath = "Plugins>Normalization")
public class ImageNormalizerIJ2Plugin implements Command {
