Any and all graphic tools i've tried consider it a 'corrupt' image, Gimp included.

If it is corrupt then maybe the bytecode is damaged (at least). This may be why it is identifying it as a macbinary. It wasn't made on Windows was it? Occasionally I've had trouble with .png, it's when working with the gimp which I use in Windows (at work)and linux(at home). Windows is usually the one that's fussy though.

Nope, it was made on a Mac. Presuming it's damaged in some way, is there any way of restoring it?

Silly questions perhaps, but...
Can you obtain another copy of the file? What type of media (floppy, cd, etc.) was the original file (where you got it) on? (I am assuming you did not down-load/up-load it, or you could just go get it again.) How/Where did you get the file? (I am not looking for personal information - rather, media/method/etc. - just assuming it did not magically appear on your hard-drive)
Do you have access to a mac? Can you see if you can view the file on a mac? (curruption test)
(Should I dare ask?) What is in the picture? Would you be willing to send it to someone (via 'PM') and let them do "surgery" on it to recover it? How big is the file?
For what it is worth, try loading it from 'kuickshow'...

I recommend having someone who owns a Mac open it for you and convert it to something you can open.
