There are several programs you can use to do this. The Gimp, xv (I think)
and other graphics applications. Most of these are available with most
distributions. In addition, for tracing applications and similar stuff, you
can turn logging on in an xterm, and it will give you an ascii file with the
data. Most of these can deal with the popular graphics formats, including
jpeg. Some also do BMP, but BMP files are bloated and less portable than
jpegs and gifs.
