Successful analysis begins with high-quality
images. Image-Pro Premier supports an evergrowing list of scientific cameras to ensure a
superior capture experience.
Live Tiling – No Automation Needed
Stitch together multiple fields of view as you manually
move around your specimen. Combine with Live EDF
to create a focused, tiled image.
Live Measurements
Measure distances, angles, object areas, and
more while previewing live images. No need
to save your image.
Fast Acquisition & Streaming to Disk
Acquire rapid events or experiments that last
for longer periods of time. Image-Pro Premier
is not only able to utilize the memory (RAM)
available on your computer, it can also stream
multi-gigabyte movies directly to your
hard drive.

Auto-Alignment &
Extended Depth of Focus
Correct for microscope shift with
post-acquisition auto-alignment tools.
Extended Depth of Focus (EDF) creates
a focused image from a series of images
captured at different z planes.
Overlay & Compare Images
Overlay images on top of one another
to see changes over time. Use with
previously acquired or live images.
Extract & Merge
Color Channels
Remove background noise and reveal
hidden details with an extensive set of
image processing filters. Preview filters
on your active image for instant results.
Navigate & Edit Movies
in Gallery View
Navigate through time-lapse and image
sequence files with the Gallery View tools.
Easily combine and separate images into
RGB, HSI, and HSL color channels.
Post-Acquisition Tiling
Tile together a series of images with
post-acquisition tiling tools and view a full
representation of your research sample.

Analyze Ringed Structures
& Detect Edges
The Caliper/Line Profile tool automatically
detects edges along a defined line. Measure
distances between these changing intensity
levels to analyze aging. Classify edges to aid in
analysis and reporting.
Track Moving Objects
Manually or automatically follow
cells or other organisms as they
move through time and space. You
can even track challenging objects
that fade out of view and move out
of the image workspace.
Count & Classify
Use one-click tools to automatically segment, count, measure, and characterize objects.

Webinars
Measure Distances
between Objects
Measure one-to-one and
one-to-many distances
between objects.
Analyze the Spatial
Distribution of Objects
Use the Voronoi Map feature to analyze and
display the spatial distribution of objects.
Segment Difficult Objects
with Smart Segmentation
Use Smart Segmentation to
identify and segment challenging
images with faintly colored
objects, textured objects, and
uneven backgrounds.
Sort Counted Objects
Create a new image displaying all
counted objects arranged by size.
