ImLab is a free open source graphical application for Scientific Image Processing that runs in Mac OS X systems. It is implemented in C++ and also in C to provide a very simple way to add new functions. It has many image operations and supports several file formats.

This program has been created to serve as a laboratory to implement routines of image processing. ImLab was build using IUP (interface), CD (drawing) and IM (imaging) libraries. It runs in Windows, Linux, SGI IRIX, SunOS, IBM AIX and MacOS X (using X-Windows).

The Tecgraf libraries and ImLab are free for academic and commercial use. See the copyright note of ImLab.

Its interface is very simple that means it still does not have direct image manipulation. However, it can be extended for that purpose.

It does not have a generic plug-in extension mechanism, but creating new functions in the "Process" menu is quite simple and very similar to a plug-in.

ImLab for Mac OS X is implemented in C and C++, but aiming simplicity I did not use complex classes to model images and other objects, so the code looks like an extended C. I do use some C++ templates to implement processing routines for the available data types, the code is rather simple to understand, even for those who do not know this mechanism.

In several situations ImLab can be the ideal program to develop new Image Processing algorithms, articles, thesis and dissertations. If you are interested in using ImLab download the source code and/or the executable. If you find it useful and would like to contribute, forward your work in ImLab to me and I will include it in the next distribution. And I hope to be able to help so as to make this feasible.
