NIS Elements is the proprietory software from Nikon Instruments for Image documentation, presentation, processing and analysis
Two of our confocal systems, our Super-resolution and Deconvolution system run NIS elements
If you have used NIS for image acquisition it has some useful features for processing and display. You don’t need to learn a new software for these. The software is proprietory and only available in the imaging facility.
Add Scale bars to images
Create 3D and Orthognal plane view
Contrast stretching, counting, measuring, plot profiles
Process and analyse super-resolution images
User friendly look and feel, almost no command line processing
There are disadvantages for this software: It isn’t always apparent what is happening to the image, the help rarely gives mathematical formulae. The processing can’t be distributed as the software is closed source. Limited options to code for specific application.
