What is Fiji

Think of ImageJ as the core of Fiji, which is enhanced by a set of plugins in a coherent menu structure, and comprehensive documentation.

Fiji is a project aiming at simplifying

  • the installation of ImageJ
  • the usage of ImageJ
  • the usage of specific, powerful ImageJ plugins
  • the development of plugins using ImageJ

It is an Open Source project, so everybody is welcome to contribute with plugins, patches, bug reports or "Well done" mails.
