Photoshop is very capable in most regards, and alot of 3rd party plug-ins
are available for special needs. It's expensive, but there is a heavily
discounted academic version which sacrifices nothing in capability.

Might be worth a look. There are also cheaper image processors which use
Photoshop's plug-in architecture. So if you can find a plug-in that does
what you want, you might be able to use it with a less pricey application.

functionality to the Mac version. You can certainly import say a TIF file
and then scale, digitise x-y coordinates and drop them into a file. The URL
for NIH downloads is


Look down the list and you will see ImagePC (alpha 6).
