What is ImageJ?

Imagej2-icon.png ImageJ is an open source image processing program for multidimensional image data with a focus on scientific imaging.

What is Fiji?

Fiji-icon.png Fiji Is Just ImageJ—a "batteries-included" distribution of ImageJ which includes many useful plugins contributed by the community.

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 powerful mechanism for extending ImageJ in all kinds of useful ways.
Scripting Automated, reproducible workflows via scripts and macros, including headless on a remote server or cluster.
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.

How do I get started?
