Installation: Download MeasureMTF_.class to the plugins folder and restart ImageJ.
Description: This plugin simplifies the task of measuring the Modulation Transfer Function (resolution) of an optical system, given an image of variously sized bar patterns.

This dialog-box-like plugin is based on the PlugInFrame class, and could serve as an example of how to automate repeated measurements.
