gif2png is an utility that converts files from the obsolescent Graphic Interchange Format to Portable Network Graphics.
gif2png is an utility that converts files from the obsolescent Graphic Interchange Format to Portable Network Graphics. The conversion preserves all graphic information, including transparency, perfectly. The gif2png program can even recover data from corrupted GIFs.
The distribution also includes a Python script, web2png, that will convert entire web hierarchies (images and HTML or PHP pages). The script requires Python 1.5.2 or later.
The program has actually been functional and stable since 1996.
The sources can be built under any Unix, or under MS-DOS or Windows using djgpp, or using Borland C. I don't know when the djgpp or Borland builds were last tested, but the Unix version is as stable as a rock.
Note: Some ImageMagick 4.2.x versions have a bug displaying grayscale PNGs that makes it look like gif2png is broken. It's not. The bug has been fixed, at least as of 5.2.2.
