ImageJ Alternatives

    ImageJ is described as 'public domain, Java-based image processing program developed at the National Institutes of Health. ImageJ was designed with an open architecture that provides extensibility via Java plugins and recordable macros' and is a Image Editor in the Photos & Graphics category. There are more than 25 alternatives to ImageJ for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Online / Web-based, Linux and Android. The best alternative is Adobe Photoshop. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Photopea or Fotor.
