 +=== Distributions ===
 [[http://​rsbweb.nih.gov/​ij/​|ImageJ]] is one of the older free, open source image analysis programs. ​ Alone, it's not that powerful; it's real strength is the vast array of plugins for it.  It runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. [[http://​rsbweb.nih.gov/​ij/​|ImageJ]] is one of the older free, open source image analysis programs. ​ Alone, it's not that powerful; it's real strength is the vast array of plugins for it.  It runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

 +[[http://​www.micro-manager.org/​|Micro-Manager]] is a microscope control package that is built on top of ImageJ. ​ It's developed at UCSF and is very powerful; we use it to control the Spinning Disk Confocal in the Nikon Imaging Center.

 +=== Plugins === 
 +The following plugins may be of particular interest to NIC users: 
 + 
 +[[http://​valelab.ucsf.edu/​~nico/​IJplugins/​Ics_Opener.html|ICS Opener]] - Allows ImageJ to open ICS files from the Nikon C1 confocal. 
 + 
 +[[http://​rsbweb.nih.gov/​ij/​plugins/​nd2-reader.html|ND2 Reader]] - Opens NIS-Elements ND2 files (old, may be outdated). 
 + 
 +[[http://​www.loci.wisc.edu/​software/​bio-formats|Bioformats]] - Library for reading many microscopy file types, including ICS and ND2.  Probably preferred to the ND2 reader above. 
 + 
 +=== Documentation === 
 +  * Susanne Rafelski has put together a nice guide to getting started with ImageJ: [[ImageJ Introduction|ImageJ Introduction]] 
 +  * Micro-manager has a [[http://​valelab.ucsf.edu/​~MM/​MMwiki/​index.php/​Micro-Manager_User%27s_Guide|User'​s Guide]]

 +=== Learning ===
