looking for ImageTools - where did they go?

The developers at San Antonio basically went their separate ways and
discontinued development (as far as I know). Fortunately, they left the
program in a usable state. I prefer Image Tool to Scion Image (even though I
have a Scion capture card) because it is more tolerant of image color modes.
Scion Image is based on Mac color conventions. I'm sure if I was accustomed
to NIH Image, though, I would echo your sentiments.

Actually, the two programs are quite different (I know, I have loked at
them both). The Scion Image program is a port of the Mac program NIH
Image to Windows, and appears to be a pretty good job at that (also
looks very much like NIH Image). Image Tool was a completely home grown
program from UTHCSA. Sorry, I don't know what happened to it. Having
played with both, I preferred the Scion Corp program, but that is just
my opinion, very subjective, and probably biased by my familiarity with
NIHImage.
