have you looked at XnView. There is a Linux version and a windows version. It 
can open .pnm files and it free for download. Windows version is a little 
better than linux version. I've used both and now use the Linux version a 
lot. You can open a .pnm  and save it as something else. Not sure how much 
you can do to them.


Sorry about sending this direct to you. But some of my posts never show up on 
the list.

Hope this helps you.
