The latest version of Image
is always available from the NIH Image Web site (http://rsb.info.nih.gov/nih-image/) or by anonymous FTP from zippy.nimh.nih.gov. A reasonably current version, including complete documentation, Pascal source code and example images, is available from one the following sources:

describing the files, subdirectories
and file formats.

go to the Software Center of the Computer forum and use the Search Libraries command
