Look here.  Forget cards.  Forget headers.  This is the route:

Get a TIFF (any old TIFF) from a PC, Sun or a Mac.  Use the shareware
GIF Converter to open it.  I have NEVER come across a sinple image file
that cannot be read by GIF Converter.  Save the file as a PICT.

Launch Image and open the PICT.  Here is you gel in the bottom right corner.

Next load in the Gel plotting Macro's and off you go.  Dead simple.

If you need a Gel-plotting manual, I have written on which I can
send out to you.  Email me though and give your full address.
