The micaToolbox supports Windows, Mac & Linux
1 Download & Install ImageJ
The micaToolbox is an add-on for the standard NIH ImageJ (not FIJI). ImageJ can be downloaded for almost any operating system here. In general, use a version bundled with Java. Note the specific instructions for MacOS (path randomisation) which are flagged on the download page.
To install ImageJ simply unzip the contents of the zip file to a location on your computer. In windows, avoid unzipping to a system-protected location such as Program Files. Use some other location on your hard drive (e.g. somewhere in Documents).
Double-click the “ImageJ” or “ImageJ.exe” file to run ImageJ. You can make a shortcut to this file if you want easy access.
2 Download & Install the micaToolbox
Download the latest micaToolbox version (link below).
Unzip the contents of the zip file to your ImageJ/Plugins directory. If ImageJ is currently running, either restart it, or go help>refresh menus to load the toolbox. Do not install this version into the same ImageJ as previous versions of the toolbox.
This link will download the latest version. Please visit the micaToolbox GitHub repository for downloading older versions.
While we have made every effort to check the toolbox functions, the developers accept no liability for any loss, damage or other issues arising from its use. Use entirely at your own risk, and see the user guide for more information.
