VischeckJ is a plugin for the
ImageJ image processing program
from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Both ImageJ and VischeckJ are free. Because ImageJ is written in
Java, it will run on most common operating systems, including
Microsoft Windows, Macintosh OS, and (our favorite) Linux. And because
VischeckJ runs under ImageJ, you can now use Vischeck on
any of these operating systems as well!
To run VischeckJ you first need to install ImageJ. You
can get ImageJ
from the NIH site.
Then install the VischeckJ plugin in the ImageJ plugin folder.
