ImageJ is a free software program for image analysis and processing. It is written in Java and created by a team of developers from the National Institutes of Health. The application allows you to perform a comprehensive analysis of images, as well as display technical information about it. The program has a possibility of three-dimensional visualization, automatic comparison in several modes and so on.
ImageJ allows you to work with images in almost all modern formats: TIFF, PNG, JPEG, BMP, GIF and so on. The program supports stacks that can be combined in one window, and also works very fast on multi-core systems. The last feature is achieved through the fact that the application can divide the tasks into threads and execute them in parallel. In addition, it is possible to calculate area, distance and angles, create a density histogram, and model line profiles. ImageJ includes a set of standard image processing tools that allow you to change contrast, sharpness, anti-aliasing, edge detection and other everyday tasks. Added images can be easily rotated, scaled and mirrored.
