multi-platform image conversion tool

ImageConverter is a  program to convert and scale in a single run mutliple images with a file format common to electron microscope software applications. The image files can be converted into more widespread pixel image formats or, if information is to be conserved, into a binary file format with a fixed length header. ImageConverter is written in the IDL programming language which supports Apple Mac OS X, LinuX and Windows. A valid installation of the freely distributed IDL virtual machine is required. Visit the IDL website for further information.
