5 Best Free Image Measurement Software For Windows

Here is a list of Best Free Image Measurement Software for Windows. These software are basically used for taking measurements from a photo to perform various image analysis. In these free software, you can estimate a number of values on an image including angle, distance, area, perimeter, mean, median, area fraction, center of mass, integrated density, skewness, coordinates, centroid, etc. To take various image measurements, you can use draw tools such as line, freehand drawing, rectangle, ellipse, polygon, etc. In most of these software, the measurement results are shown in a spreadsheet-like window. You can easily save the results in a text or CSV file.

Many of these are image analysis software (check full list), in which you can find an advanced set of image analysis tools including Calibrate, Plot Profile, Surface Plot, Histogram, Object Analysis, Count Black/White Pixels, and more. Some image processing tools like smoothen, sharpen, enhance color profile, etc., are also provided in some software.

These free image measurement software work well with various raw and standard images. Most commonly supported image formats in these software include BMP, TIFF, PNG, JPEG, GIF, etc. All in all, these are quite useful tools to take measurement from digital images and for performing general image analysis.

  • Snap Image: It lets you save the imported image with annotations and measurements in any of the supported image formats.
  • Microscope: It is a tab where you can manage configurations (magnification) related to microscope and calibrate it (define image scale). You can also select the measurement unit before taking actual measurements.

Additional Features:

  • It lets you apply the perspective correction and vignetting filters on the images.
  • You can rotate, flip, or zoom an image accordingly.
  • You can view histogram graph of an image in it.


It is another good free image measurement software which lets you easily take various numerical measurements from images.

CMEIAS ImageTool

CMEIAS ImageTool is the next free image measurement software for Windows. It is also an image analysis software which is primarily used in microbial ecology field. You can find Object Analysis, Count Black/White Pixels, Image Processing, Histogram, and more tools to properly analyze an image. Along with these image analysis tools, it also provides options to measure distance, angle, coordinates, and area in an image. It works well with all major image formats like BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, etc.

Main Features:

  • For area and distance, you can choose to view various related measurements including perimeter, mean gray level, median gray level, integrated density, standard deviation, etc. You can do that by going to Settings > Preferences.
  • To measure angle, you can select the desired unit from radians and degrees.
  • It shows all measured values in a separate Results window.
  • You can directly print results or save measurements in a Text file.


It is one more nice software to measure digital images without much hassle. You get some more handy features in it related to image analysis which you can check in this article > Image Analysis Software.


JMicroVision is yet another free image measurement software for Windows, Linux, and Mac. It is another image analysis software which lets you examine, quantify, and measure different aspects of digital images. You can measure different kinds of images in various formats including JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, PNM, and WBMP. Let’s checkout what are the main image measurement features you get in this software.

Key Features:

  • 1D measurements: You can perform various 1-dimensional calculations such as distance, points, orientation, orientation significance, Azimuth, color, etc.
  • 2D measurements: As the name suggests, you can calculate 2-dimensional shape values using it, such as area, perimeter, eccentricity, etc.

To take measurements, you can use tools like line, rectangle, circle, polygon, etc.

Additional Features:

  • You can find Spatial Calibration, Object Extraction, Point Counting, Image Factory (segmentation, arithmetic, logic, gradient filtering, rasterize drawings, etc.), and more tools in it.
  • It lets you view Histogram graph of an image.


It is a simple image measurement software to take various 1D and 2D measurement from an image.

ER Viewer

ER Viewer is a dedicated viewer for raster GIS images for Windows. It can also be used as image measurement software as it provides a dedicated measure tool. In it, you can simply import an image of any of supported formats like JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, etc., and measure length between two points in the imported image. You can view the results below its interface. The measurement tool can be accessed from the Tools menu.

More Features:

  • You can find some more image viewing features including simple zoom (zoom in, zoom out, data extents, etc.), zoom box, hand, smoothing, etc.
  • It provides an “Open ECWP URL” feature which lets you import an image using its URL.
  • You can save an opened image in formats including ERS, HDR, BMP, JPG, and TIFF.


It is a very basic image measurement tool which only lets you measure distance between two points in an image.
