Tools for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) Files?

» close window

The Question is:

Is it possible to convert Windows GIF files for use on OpenVMS?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is unfamiliar with a _Windows GIF_ file format.
  If this is a CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) file,
  then the available OpenVMS web browsers (eg: Mozilla) and various
  of the imaging-related tools and Freeware (eg: xv, ImageMagick) can
  display the image contained within.  No conversions are required.
  If you have Mozilla installed, specify the URL file:///spec.gif.
  If you wish to convert a GIF file to another graphics file format,
  available tools such as xv and ImageMagick can be used.
  If you had intended a different question, please realize that
  one- or two-line questions are exceedingly and surprisingly
  difficult for the OpenVMS Wizard to answer -- such questions
  can easily be (and entirely unintentionally) ambiguous.
  Background information can often help eliminate ambgiguities,
  and can allow the OpenVMS Wizard to answer the question intended.
