Export a stack of .lsm files to an animation

imagej

#1

Hi all, I am very new to ImageJ, so bear with me. I have a series of confocal images in lsm format for different planes. Is there a way I can export these to create some kind of animation (like a gif) that could be embedded in web pages or presentations? I have searched this forum and I also looked in the documentation (although not exhaustively).

Some guidance or link to some instructions would be most welcome

You can convert your *.lsm to a stack (if it is, e.g., a hyperstack) or reduce the dimensionality (see menu Hyperstack) to create a selected channel stack over the time or a stack from the channels.

Then select the stack animations options for speed control, etc. and
export the stack as a *.gif (will be animated in ImageJ).
