If you use Linux, there is KXStitch.  It is free and works great.

In the olden days, I would use an opaque projector and shine the photo on a piece of graph paper and trace the areas of the main colors.  I also have used a light box and graph paper, or when completely desperate, I have used a window on a sunny day and taped the image and graph paper to it to trace.

The stitch count is simply the number of stitches in that particular color.

If you can run Linux, I highly recommend KXStitch.  It is free and very easy to use.  I've been using it for years and love it.
