NIH Image is freeware.  It was developed by Wayne Rasband of NIH and it runs on Macs.
There are versions for 68000 and PPC.  There is also a port to win95 which isn't quite 
as good (of course).  For more info and downloads see:

I think these are all correct.  I hope this helps.  You can also go to the main NIH
site, www.nih.gov, and into DCRT, the computer division and search there.
