RE: How to save a image to GIF by GIMP?

I'm not aware of graphics and it's specific pro's and con's, since adobe
support .jpb for webgraphics i thought i didn't matter that much
PNG tends to be rather 'heavy' for a website to use, No ?

It's possible the non-free package will get you what you need.

JPEG is not good replacement for GIF in many cases. PNG is better as

I think I saw in dselect something like 'gimp-non-free'. Probably this
packages comes with gimp with GIF support.
