In order to make the downloads from this site as easy and accessible as possible we are using PKZip compression for all files, including Macintosh files. We previously used StuffIt, but there are better Mac utilities for extracting PKZip files than there are PC utilities for extracting Stuffit files. This also lets us avoid having to Binhex all the files.
Please note that contrary to the claims of Aladdin software StuffIt expander WILL NOT extract PKZip files reliably. We recommend that you download ZipIt and use it to open our PKZip archives if you have a Macintosh. Alternatively, try StuffIt Lite, which actually has a PKZip extracting feature.
We have now added several image processing programs which should be a lot of help if you're a novice in dealing with images, or if you need a first class shareware graphics utility. Graphic Converter for the Mac is a very solid format conversion utility which will work with just about any image. Thumbs+ is similar in concept to Graphic Converter, but is newer and has more features. It's available for either the Mac or the PC. NIH Image is a powerful graphics editor for the Mac similar to Photoshop, but absolutely free courtesy of our tax dollars at the National Institutes of Health. It even uses Photoshop plug-ins. Paint Shop Pro works with Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 and offers most of the same features as Photoshop. Very powerful and will let you access most graphic formats. If you are having trouble with any of our TIFF fomat images, these utilities should help out a lot.
