Load and save Analyze format images

Author: Guy Williams (gbw1000 at wbic.cam.ac.uk)
Limitations:Cannot save RGB images
Source: Analyze_Reader.java and Analyze_Writer.java
Installation: Download Analyze_Reader_Writer.jar to the plugins folder, or subfolder, restart ImageJ, and there will be new File>Import>Analyze... and File>Save As>Analyze... commands.
Description: These plugins load and save images in Analyze format, a common multidimensional biomedical imaging format. You can open Analyze images using File/Open or drag and drop if the HandleExtraFileTypes plugin is in the ImageJ plugins folder.

The NIfTI Input/Output plugins are extended versions of these plugins that add support NIfTI-1, an extension of the Analyze file format, and also add support for hyperstacks.
