Usage

Short version: Add the following dependencies to your project:

To ensure version compatibility, you should import or extend net.imagej:pom-imagej, which manages the Bill of Materials. Doing this allows you to declare the above dependencies without explicitly specifying their respective versions.

Be aware that the first three components above are licensed under BSD-2, whereas ome:formats-gpl is licensed under the GPL, which might affect your project's licensing.

Details: Add the following blocks to your Maven POM:
