The images are previewed via the browser, so it cannot show you a file type that your browser doesn't support. I'm not aware of any web browsers that natively support any of those formats. I'm assuming it would be possible to script something to run those formats through a filter that converts them to a compatible format in memory before sending them to the browser for rendering, but it would be a very daunting task and require significant resource consumption.

I understand you have the software to convert the picture formats. I meant this type of process would have to be on the server, and then edit the XSLT to pass the image URLs to the filter instead of directly to the browser.

However, this is pretty much what can be done in theory - I'm not aware of anybody with such an implementation and it would likely be difficult to create it. More so than the amount of support I can provide. The closest thing I can see is a product by MediaRich:
http://www.equilibrium.com/eq_software/mediarich_for_sharepoint/mediarich_for_sharepoint_at_work/

Basically, it extends Sharepoint to add more features, especially for images and popular document formats. That tells my theory of how to do it via a filter is possible, but I don't have the expertise to actually create it. Maybe another expert with more Sharepoint software development skills can help you, but just be aware it's not a simple task and may be more work than you bargained for.
