3i maintains a Bio-Formats plugin to import SLD files into FIJI by enabling an additional update site in FIJI. Using the latest version of FIJI/ImageJ and latest Bio-formats (version 5.2.0 and above) you will need to enable the SlideBook update site for SLD file import to work. The steps are:
1. select the ‘Help > Update…’ menu item
2. press the ‘Manage update sites’ button
3. find the ‘SlideBook’ update site (linked to http://sites.imagej.net/SlideBook/), and check to enable it
As noted above, to receive the latest Bio-Formats updates you must be running the latest version of FIJI. This requires that you have the ‘Java-8’ update site selected. New installations of FIJI have the ‘Java-8’ update site enabled by default.
Older installations will require repeating the steps above while selecting the ‘Java-8’ update site.
If you do not have the SlideBook update site enabled, you will get the error “File is not in a supported format, a reader plugin is not available, or it was not found.”
We recommend using FIJI because Bio-Formats and many other useful plugins come pre-bundled. Contact 3i Support if you still need help reading SLD files in ImageJ.
The plugin supports Windows x32 / x64, OS X and Linux x64 systems. If your operating system is not supported the error message “3i SlideBook 6 native SLD reader library not found” will appear. If you receive this error please contact 3i support for assistance.
