Can't open Tiff template file


Hi there,

I have 2 tiff file: one is a micrograph which can be imported, and another is template 16-bit grayscale. The problem arises when I try to import my tiff template; the software says it doesn't recognized the file. Is there any suggestions on how to successfully import the tiff template/change tiff to mrc?

Hi Niko,

Thank you for your recommendation. Do you have to have Imagic installed in order to get it to work for mac (I'm using OS10.8.2)? I followed the URL, downloaded and unzipped the file, but when I double-click the em2em icon, nothing shows up but
; exit;
usage: dirname path
[Process completed]
And their instruction doesn't seem to be applicable to the software the provide to download for free.
Is there any other software that can convert .tiff to .mrc?

We have IMAGIC installed, so I am not sure. Please contact ImageScience with this question. All I know is that em2em is offered free of charge. So I assume that one should be able to run it without purchasing a full version of IMAGIC.

eman 1, eman2, and bsoft, as well as imod will all perform this operation. I believe they are all free.
