      JASC Software makes a product called Paint Shop Pro that will allow you to do entire batch conversions from one image type to another really quickly. For example, if you have a directory of jpegs and you want them to be gifs, then it will do this for you saving a lot of time. You can even opt to keep both formats if you want.

      I use it a lot for this. It also has a cool feature that lets you view as thumbnails the entire contents of a directory of images and just double-click on the one that you want to enlarge.

      You can download and evaluate for 30 days at http://www.jasc.com/product.asp?pf%5Fid=001&mscssid=8Q6EQ8UC84SR2PMR00SPN10L3DCT9QC5

      Just copy and paste that link exactly as it is to the address field of your browser to go to their site.

      Your question is the very reason why I have invested the small funds to purchase and keep upgrading this very powerful and versatile program called Paint Shop Pro. I was quite tired of trying to figure out how to take one type of image and convert to another for different effects. Now I find I have little problems in this area. Image conversion is not the ONLY advantage to Paint Shop Pro, but it’s the main reason I bought it.

      Try http://www.dadaware.com/ I don’t remember if batch conversion works even under Windows (the products was born as OS/2 software).

      Get Visua95 (you might find it at nonags.com)
      it is freeware and will convert many image types, the nice thing is that you can select as many files as you want and it will convert them all.

      Just use Microsoft photo editor. Irt’s part of office. Why convert to gif? Jpg has more advantages.

      A Freeware/shareware product called Stuffit can handle this with ease. It is easy to use to.

      I have used Vuepro by Hamrick Software for several years personally. (http://www.hamrick.com) While other programs have nice conversion functions, this one can convert virtually ANY format image to another format. Just select “File, Convert” then select your file(s) and the new format.

      THIS RECOMMENDATION IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I suggest you download a program called ACDSee. It is made by ACDSee Systems. You can convert any number of graphics from any format to any format. Either single or batch. Its quick, easy, and i don’t know what i would do without it. I was doing web creation for a while and I really needed to convert BMP to gif and jpg. This program does it all. You can set it up to use the current name but convert the extension (ie: mypic.bmp -> mypic.gif) or you can have it ask you for a new name when it converts (ie: mypic.bmp -> me.gif). Good luck. If you don’t choose this one, I suggest looking into it for future reference. I really think you’ll be impressed. I know I was. I used Paint shot pro, but this doesit better and FASTER!
