Seed counting using microscope images?

I visited NLGRP in Fort Collins this week, and they showed me their new microscope software (for their Keyence microscope) that had lots of fun bells and whistles including software that has promise for counting seeds and pollen through the microscope. Does anyone currently use digitial seed counting as part of their currently seed bank methodology? I'm mostly curious if anyone has worked through all the hiccups and actually put it into practice.

Do you know if the program was called imageJ? I'm pretty sure it has the capability to count objects within an image if you define what the object is initially. If it's something else, I would love to know more about it. 

Have a question or info about Conventional Seed Banking?
