We’ll start with an ImageJ [1] built-in algorithm that can identify local extrema in digital images. Object counting is a common task to be performed in many use cases such as colony counting (figure 1a), lysis plaque analysis, local lesions counting in plant leaf pictures (figure 1b, c) or cell/nuclei counting in biological tissue images.
