Requires: ImageJ 1.30m or newer


Installation: Download StackAverage_Kalman_16.class to the plugins folder and restart ImageJ

Description: Calculates the average values of pixels located at the same position in each slice of the stack and creates a new image showing the average values. Averaging is done by the Kalman method in which, after adding the first two images and dividing by 2, a divide by 2 is done after adding each subsequent image. This lends more weight to the last images that are added.

This plugin is based on the plugin StackAverage, an example plugin form the ImageJ plugin writing tutorial previously located at
