On my side I quite miss Lenna within a course where I show FFT and explain
that all the data of the pretty picture is conserved in another way within
its FFT version of it.

I noticed that, since updating ImageJ to version 1.52, my favorite sample

You can restore the Bridge sample image by upgrading to the latest ImageJ daily build (1.52p36) and adding
item = "File>Open Samples>Bridge";
class = "ij.plugin.URLOpener(\"bridge.gif\")";
call("ij.Menus.add", item, class);
