ImageJ is a public domain Java image-viewing and -processing program. It runs either as an online applet or as a downloadable application, on any computer with a Java 1.6 or later virtual machine, and can provide image analytics and basic editing functions.
What's New
Version 1.48u:
  • Selections added to overlays by the Measure command when "Add to Overlay" is enabled in Analyze>Set Measurements are labeled with the measurement number.
  • Thanks to Ted Toal, Image>Zoom>Set sets the zoom center based on a point selection and it no longer enlarges the window.
  • Thanks to Norbert Vischer, the macro debugger's Array Inspector now flags array value changes.
  • Added getStringProperty(key) and getNumericProperty(key) methods to the ImagePlus class.
  • Added a TextWindow constructor that accepts an ArrayList.
  • Thanks to Johannes Schindelin, added the GenericDialog#isPreviewActive() method.
  • Thanks to Herbie Gluender, fixed a bug that caused the output of the Plot Profile and Measure commands to be inconsistent with horizontal or vertical one pixel wide straight line selections.
  • Thanks to Gabriel Landini, fixed a bug that could cause the Results table to be displayed very slowly on Java 1.7 and 1.8.
  • Thanks to Burni, fixed a bug that prevented the ImageWindow.setNextLocation() method from working with windows normally centered on the screen, such as plot windows.
  • Fixed a v1.48 regression that caused the run("Add Selection...", options) macro function to not work as expected with text selections.
  • Thanks to Johannes Schindelin, fixed a v1.48r regression that caused the "Fonts" dialog to be displayed multiple times or incorrectly if you double-clicked the text tool icon multiple times.
  • Thanks to Johannes Schindelin, Gabriel Landini and Volker Baecker, fixed a v1.48r regression on Linux that caused ImageJ to freeze when opening a NonBlockingGenericDialog such as the text tool or arrow tool options dialogs.

I really wish I knew about this app when I was in college. Apart from professional image analysis and general editing, it can be very helpful for students in signal processing/image processing to understand how transforms and filters work.

Thanks to the devs.

perfect software for all.

from the scientist POV imagej allows us to handle, process and analyse microscope data without the need for prohibitably expensive and sometimes unstable software.

for the non-scientist it can be used for all your image needs including scripting for batch processing.

Perhaps the most hideously designed software ever written.

Just had to reply to this terribly misguided opinion from Spiralsteps. ImageJ is quite simply one of the best pieces of software available.

it is actually vital software for scientists. its free, scriptable and handles all our obscure file formats (with help from the community)

it may not be totally user friendly however, it is extremely important for us

No doubt: it's not beautiful, doesn't take advantage of all the latest OS X features, etc. It doesn't have the nice polished UI most Cocoa apps offer BUT, it's by far the most powerful and versatile image editor for scientific purposes out there. Scriptable, extendable, more features that you can dream of, and best of all, free!
If you are looking for a nice and friendly image editor, I would understand that you'd want to move on to any of the very nice products out there.
If you want to perform some serious image analysis, then you might want to give it a second look.

You can't actually download 1.44f directly. Use the instructions at the following link to upgrade your copy:

Excellent work in the public domain. This is the kind of tool you NEED when you are in image processing and want to analyze a new type of image. This saves time and resources, since it provides all functionality I would usually find in either expensive image processing suites or environments, such as Matlab. Congrats to the developers!

I found it to be extremely buggy. It wasn't able to access an image on the clipboard at all when no other Mac app had a problem with the clipboard image.

Then when opening a JPEG of aprox. 2500x1900 it threw an out of memory error, which is an absolute joke on a 768MB system that had 160MB free at the time. Considering Preview.app opened the same image flawlessly, what gives?

I would give it thumbs down. Maybe wait until they do a Cocoa/Java port? Who knows. It just doesn't feel very polished at this point.

Thanks for this Java program. It's easy to use and it's fast.

Madena is much better. More controls, better interface, faster and the same price (Free).

Still ImageJ might have its uses (primarilly if you are operating on a cross plaform basis). Either provide control and manipulation of 16-bit level data in either TIFF or DICOM files. Something GIMP can NOT do.

Huge list of bugfixes from 1.32i that I have used for about a week. In that time I've written a couple of plugins to test out some image processing concepts... REMARKABLY easy despite never having written in Java (or C, for that matter) before.

Don't let a simplistic "X is better" deter you if ImageJ looks useful for your purposes. This ain't perfect (I don't see a bugfix for a way that I crashed my version and some Mac-isms don't work right) but it has a very short learning curve to be very useful.

To the guy in La-La land: You realize Madena is some 20 MBs, as opposed to ImageJ's less than 1 MB, right?

I guess some people read the first sentence and make a conclusion. 20MB with demo images and only 3MB without.
