Be Aware before installing ImageJ-FX

ImageJ-FX still remains on a experimental state and does not support ImageJ1 Scripts or plugins. Thus, after installing ImageJ-FX on your installation, you won't be able to move back to the old Fiji. For these reaons, I would recommend you to install ImageJ-FX on a separate Fiji / ImageJ2 installation.

1. Installation

For a safe testing, download the latest version of Fiji, extract it, and start it. The next step consists into adding ImageJ-FX repository to your update site list in order to download the latest ImageJ-FX version and receive occasional updates.

1.1 Easy update site installation

Download this script and drag it into Fiji's window. A script window will open. Click on Run it and it will install the ImageJ-FX update site, launch the update process. After some time, you should the list of jar files to install. Click on "Apply all changes". Once the process over, close Fiji and restart the program. ImageJ-FX should open.

1.2 Manual Update site installation

Open Fiji and go to "Help > Update...". This will launch the update process. Once the process over, you should see a window appearing. Click on the bottom left button "Advanced" then "Add update site". Fill its name "ImageJ-FX" and address "". Validate the change and click on "Apply all changes" to start the installation process. Restart Fiji. Your newly installed ImageJ-FX window should appear instead of the classical user interface.

3. Missing features

  • ImageJ1 Plugin support and installation
  • 3D support

4. License

ImageJ FX is a user interface running on top of ImageJ and written in Java using the JavaFX technology.
