I was going to suggest you load the pict into a paint program and put a grid overlay on... multi step and might have other problems but a thought

Loading a grid overlaying a picture is not a proper count. You do not know the volume of the sample you are viewing. Haemocytometers can be had for cheap on Ebay. Definitely recommended.
