# Where can I find the Decimate modifier?

I need to decimate a 3d-scanned image. I am in Object Mode, but I do not see the Modifiers Panel. The wiki says that F9 will display the Modifiers panel, but this does nothing in my Blender session. I am running Blender 2.70 on Windows 7. Thank you for your time.

• You may also try out Mesh > Vertices > Remove Doubles (or via W menu, both in Edit Mode). – CoDEmanX Apr 28 '14 at 22:05

You must have an object selected for the modifiers panel to be visible.

Once you have an object selected (yellow outline), it will be in Properties > Modifiers. Then click on Add modifier and select Decimate:
