ImageJ Download Instructions for Students

Page history last edited by stizashell@... 3 years ago

General Instructions:

Current instructions (Jan 2021)

 

          Fiji is ImageJ, but with many plugins already included.

 

 

  • To Install, extract all the files from the .zip folder. Run the “ImageJ” application that’s inside the Fiji.app folder.

 

  • Manual Tracking is located in plugins->tracking.
  • A new multitracker called MTrack2 is also included in the plugins menu and is much better than the old one.

 

 

 

Old version instructions (pre 2017)

How to Download ImageJ (w/ "Manual Tracking" and "MultiTracker" plug-ins.)

One of the modern tools that we will use is an image/video analysis software called ImageJ.  Students will learn more about this in the pre-reading to a future lab (Lab 1b).  ImageJ software is used in lots of biomedical research labs--some students may already be familiar with it/have heard of it.  This software will be used for over half of the labs and for occasional homeworks, so it is good for students to have access on their laptop/home computer.

 

Software can be downloaded from: http://rsbweb.nih.gov/ij/download.html

Students will need to choose the correct version to match their laptop.  PC users need to choose the correct version to match their version of Java.  They can find this by accessing the Control Panel, System Properties (System and Security), System, System type.  For most newer laptops, 64-bit is the correct choice.

 

Once this has been downloaded (SAVE, don't OPEN) and installed (default installation recommended), two plug-ins must also be downloaded.  These plug-in files (linked below), should be SAVED (not opened) to the Stacks folder in the Plugins folder in the ImageJ folder that has been created during installation on their hard drive.  For MAC users, it is imperative that students not open/run ImageJ until these files have been saved to the appropriate location, and that these files have been SAVED, not opened. (MACs are a bit pickier, here, than PCs).  If any students are having way too much trouble accomplishing this, please visit Kim Moore's Course Center hour this Thursday, 3-4 pm in room 0208.
