.LSM is Zeiss' proprietary image format based on TIFF. LSM files are the default data export for the Zeiss LSM series confocal microscopes (e.g. LSM 510, LSM 710). In addition to the image data, LSM files contain most imaging settings. These can be viewed and extracted using additional tools like the LSM Toolbox for Fiji.
