[Coral-List] Free software for percent cover analysis?

I’m trying to analyze some photos of fouling communities to figure out the percent cover of the species, is there a really good (free) program recommended for this? I’m thinking I’d like to lay down 50 random or non-random points on a picture, then count the points per species to get percent cover. In a lab I worked for in the past I used Coral Point Count (CPC) to analyze photos from coral reefs, which worked really well, but no longer have access to that software. Any advice is appreciated!
