The scientific image viewer

What is it?

CImgExplorer is a viewer for scientific intensity images. It shows intensity images as false-colour images, displays the value below the cursor, and allows zooming and selections. The histogram is shown and the false-colour scale may be tweaked to best view the required features. Automatic histogram optimisation is possible, basic analysis filters like intensity conversion of multichannel images and Gaussian mean filter are available.
