Macnification lets you work with images of microscopic details like never before. This advanced image editor is aimed mainly at academics and professionals.

This professional imaging software offers very powerful organizational tools. Images can be saved in different projects, tagged and quickly previewed in a mini browser.

Macnification also features stacks and smart folders to save your pictures the best way you like.

In terms of editing Macnification offers a good set of tools to detect ROIs, create lines and shapes and adjust settings like exposure, brightness or contrast.

Macnification may seem like a fairly complex image editor yet it provides a very complete help guide and even some sample images to learn how to use the program

Macnification makes great use of Leopard's new features.

Use Quick Look to preview images, Spotlight to search, or Apple Mail to send your results to other scientists.

The real drawback to Macnification is the price.

At a minimum of $199, Macnification is obviously destined for professional environments rather than single users.

Macnification is an expensive yet very advanced image editor for microscopic images, which makes full use of Leopard technology.

Changes

  • Support for Leica Image Files (.lif). In addition, we fixed a bug that sometimes prevented image searches and we improved performance throughout the application.

Most scientists rely on the Finder to manage their microscopic images. While the Finder is great for general purpose file management, it has never been designed for managing scientific images.

Macnification, on the other hand has been built from the ground up for microscopic image data: it knows how to handle many file formats (including JEOL tiff and Zeiss lsm, among others) and image metadata.
