Hi folks,
What software do you use to measure the subjects on your images?
I've been using Piximetre
http://www.piximetre.fr/
Just looking for other options.
Thanks

I would highly recommend ImageJ. ImageJ is a completely free image editing and manipulation program made with US government funding. It is used in countless scientific publications and has great modules etc that people have written for it. The whole purpose is to analyze images for scientific investigation. It is written in Java and works on any operating system. Heck, may even be on phones now I have no idea.

ImageJ by itself opens up a potential nightmare of dependency
problems. The collection of modules that make up imageJ are
being added to and modified on a daily basis and not always by
Java experts. What works today may not work tomorrow. Problems
may range from subtle to system crashing events.

Fiji ( Fiji Is Just ImageJ ) solves all the problems. It's free
and updates itself.

see:

Have fun.

Good info, Brad_.

And here's a quick tutorial on putting a scale bar into an image:

@Brad:
I have used ImageJ (not FiJi) a lot in the past, including programming of Macros, and did not encounter any particular problems, other than some inconvenience because of the logic of the macro commands. I ran it on a Windows 7, I7 CPU-64bit-6GB memory PC. Perhaps it depends on certain ImageJ plug-ins one adopts.

@wporter:
Thanks for the link.

I like the freeware software "MICAM". It is a lightweight, so very small, easy but very functional.

Me either. I have ran ImageJ on linux, FreeBSD, MacOS, Windows 98, 7, and windows 8 and never encountered a single crash unless I was trying to install modules that were not in the download from their website. The only issues I have ever had were from open source java implements on linux.

Thanks folks,
I've played with ImageJ / Fiji in the past but not for this use.
Guess it's time to give it another try.
Thanks ImperatorRex, I had a quick look but that is image acquisition as well as measuring, I'm only after measuring software.
:)
