{{Development | fijiFijiMenu}}The complete Fiji distribution of ImageJ consists of over a hundred individual components. Most of these components are ImageJ [[plugins]]; the rest are core libraries, [[scripts]], the ImageJ [[launcher]] and several other resources (such as the [[:File:Fiji-icon.png|Fiji logo]] and the README).
