Picture Files ("CLIPART") Software Needed

Can any of you out there recommend any software products that have
that  is relatively inexpensive?  It should have simple pictures that one
might want to use for making posters or flyers.

Please e-mail to me and I will post the list that I compile.  Thank you.

I forgot to add that such software should run on a Mac SE.

 
 
 

1. TIFF LZW compressed (type "MM") pictures ?

I recently scanned some very nice art pictures (Dali, Escher, Margritte) on
a Apple Macintosh IIcx, using a software called ImageStudio (or was that the
grey-level version ?).  I stored the pictures as a "LZW compressed TIFF image"
with 256 colors, which turned out to produce a TIFF with type "MM".

Now, it seems that no other software either on a Mac, PC or a Unix sun4 can
read these.  Does anyone have any clue to converting these to some more common
format like Mac PICT, X10 or perhaps even (the final target) GIF ?
I have tried vgaimg and graphics workshop on the PC, a couple of freebies on
the Mac and pbm on the sun4, all which say that type "MM" is not supported.

Sorry for the cross-posts, but I'm really getting to my wit's end with these...
Please reply by mail, if at all possible.
