"Great application - if you know how to use it."

The app works great but the documentation sucks. I'd like to see more info about how to accomplish tasks rather than just the basics of how a tool works. For example, I'd like to measure the perimeter of halftone dots (i.e. a repeating pattern). I've figured out how to measure the perimeter of an individual do - but not multiple dots within the same image. The documentation is no help.

"ImageJ is great"

We have been using it for years at my University. Keeping in mind the price, and the collaborative method used to develop it, I think it is an awesome product. It is very versatile, and we use if for electron microscopy, astronomical images, and everything in between. It is mostly designed for medical/biology uses though.

"No 16-bit Support"

This is a nice program and it is FREE, but the fact that it doesn't support 16-bit files makes it less than a 5-star effort.

"Worthy Successor"

This program is amazing and is a worthy successor to the Mac-only NIH image. On our tight budget, we get high-quality image processing tools for free. The incorporation of the FFT filters into the main distribution was a big step forward: I never boot up Classic any more to use NIH Image.

The interface is not very Mac-like and is annoying, probably due to the cross-platform nature of the code. For heavy duty image processing (multiple FFTs or volume rendering), the program runs pretty slowly. I don't expect the speed to improve, but the features keep getting more numerous (but it doesn't feel bloated) and the bugs are rapidly addressed.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.51g
  • Thanks to Michael Schmid, added the Image>Adjust>Coordinates command, which allows the user to set the corner coordinates of the selection bounds or the full image. This modifies the image scale (pixelWidth, pixelHeight) and the xOrigin, yOrigin. If a single point is selected, the coordinates of the point can be specified, which only sets xOrigin and yOrigin. The units for x and y can be also selected.
  • Thanks Marcel Krzan, increased the font size in GenericDialog text areas (Options>Startup, Analyze>Calibrate, Filters>Convolve and Batch>Macros) to 14 points.
  • Thanks to Thomas Boudier, when creating a new stack, a status message and progress bar are only displayed when the stack is 250 MB or larger.
  • Thanks to Norbert Vischer, added the List.setMeasurements("limit") macro function.
  • Thanks to Curtis Rueden, fixed a bug that caused the run("From ROI Manager") macro function to not transfer the selection positions to the overlay.
  • Thanks to Jinghan Chen, fixed a bug that caused the multi-point tool to sometimes fail when using multiple counters.
  • Thanks to Curtis Rueden, fixed bugs that caused the "Run single instance listener" option in Edit>Options>Misc to not work as expected.
