What does ImageJ provide?

Application A user interface with functions to load, display, and save images.
Techniques Image processing, colocalization, deconvolution, registration, segmentation, tracking, visualization and much more.
Plugins An extension mechanism including support macros and scripts.
Forum A vibrant, diverse, and helpful user community that gives rise to insightful scientific exchanges.

ImageJ's extensibility is the root of its effectiveness: many advanced image-processing methods are not provided by the core application, but rather are plugins written by specialists in specific fields, made available via update sites.
