The plugin was written as a Jython script during the [[2011 Hackathon in Madison|Madison ImageJ2/Fiji [ hackathon] in January 2011]]. The heavy lifting is performed using [[Jython_Scripting#Inline_java_code_inside_jython:_the_Weaver|in lined]] Java code snippet courtesy of [ Albert Cardona]{{Person|Albertcardona}}. All the large scale downsampling is done using [[User:Saalfeld{{Person|Stephan Saalfeld's]] }} proper [[Downsample|downsampler]]. [[User:Schindelin{{Person|Johannes Schindelin]] }} has helped a lot with the Dialog Listeners and will maintain the plugin for posterity.
BTW, this plugin and its genesis is a great example of the power of Fiji and the hackathons. I came to the hackathon not knowing anything about python and with only basic knowledge of Java and the ImageJ code base. In ten days I had the plugin written, probably driving the Fiji geeks crazy with my constant basic (or downright stupid) questions. But the take home message for biologists is - it can be done!
