You can try with Mablab's findpeaks function, or see the attached code in file exchange:

Won't work, at least not right away. He said he does not have the data but has an image that is a scan of a printout. First, from that image, he needs to get the 1-D signal data, then he can use findpeaks().

Try this:
But you'll have to decide how many elements you want the signal divided up into, say 500 or 1000 elements. And once you do that you can't get any wavenumbers because all we know is that the first element is around 2180. We have no idea what the last element in the array would have for a wavenumber because it's not shown on the plot.

Do we need to assume that the axes can be tilted, or can we assume that they are aligned with the image rows and columns? What about the color of the plotted line? Black, blue, or any possible color, except pure white?
