if you are on Windows platform, this is what you need..

i donwloaded, installed & test the same & it works quite fine.
Since its a demo version, the output .gif file has the company's watermark.
Therefore you have to purchase a registered version to get your output without the watermark.

=====================================================
2GIF.EXE is a command-line utility which allows you to convert images from 15 popular formats into GIF.


You can convert to GIF format from BMP, DCX, DXF, EPS, FPX, GIF, IMG, JPG, PCD, PCX, PNG, Targa, TIFF, WPG, and WMF.

In addition, the program supports zooming and interlacing, and lets you perform conversions in batch mode.
