Georeferenced coordinates for a tiff file

I think it is not what I was asking for.
I know how to insert georeferenced coordinates in a tiff file that is what
you are telling me I undertand, but, my problem, is that I have defined my
EXTENT with the coordinates provided by my OVF file and I need that my
raster image (a tiff file) matches with them, so I need to calculate the
georeferenced coordinates to insert in tiff file, from the existing ones.
I have two layers one of them calls to a database to insert several points
in the map and the other is the raster image that have to be displayed under
I found the present georeferenced coordinates of tiff file trying a lot of
values until it match with the existing image but I supose that there is a
method to calculate it exactly.
I hope I explained my problem so you could understand me.
