Sample Images Not Opening

Hi,

When I Try opening a sample image on ImageJ on my Mac, they return the error:

“Open URL
Error Loading Image”

It works on my other PC and even a friends Mac, yet his imagej2 install process was no different to mine.

Please can someone help me diagnose this?

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi @rpbrookes,

to trace this error, it would be very helpful to get some more information such as:

  • Which image are you trying to load?
  • Is the computer properly connected to the internet?
  • Can you open the URL https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/images/ in a browser on that PC?
  • What version of ImageJ (or FIJI?) do you have installed?
  • What operating system version are you running on?

Thanks,
Robert

In the latest ImageJ version the URL has changed. See the release notes here:

https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/notes.html

The ImageJ website (imagej.nih.gov/ij) will soon start using encryption incompatible with Java so sample images and updates are now downloaded from wsr.imagej.net and URLs used to open images and text files are redirected to mirror.imagej.net.

So you believe it’s just a matter of updating?

Eventually yes. But I had also situations were the server simply did not respond for a certain time.
However we can double check by adding an URL to the open URL action for both.

All,

Thanks for your responses - they were so helpful!

I’ve now fixed the issue by changing the version of ImageJ I was using; uninstalling the previous version (which I believe was bundled with Java 1.6) and reinstalling ImageJ with Java 1.8 included sorted it.

Thanks for pointing out that the link has moved too.

Hey, I am facing the same problem. I tried deleting and reinstalling but it did not work.
I use Windows 10 on my HP laptop.

Can you help fixing this problem?

Thanks
