Is gd unable to convert GIF to PNG?

Jpeg works for me, but gif doesn't. Is gd unable to convert gif to png?

I've set my image.ini like this:

I had this with ImageMagick.

Reports the problem, and offer a solution that I used as PNG do not display correctly on Mac.

An interesting thing is that now GIFs are out of patent, i wonder how this will affect the future of PNG?

I hope this helps

It seems like gd is unable to convert GIFs.

I solved my problem by making convert work, and let it do the GIFs.

I'm not sure why convert hasn't worked before, but I suspect that I forgot to add image/gif to AvailableMimeTypes.

Hey Lars,

I got a problem similar today, it appears 3.1 cannot use ImageMagick when converting gif to gif, you need to keep the default of converting gifs to pngs.


instead of my preferred


This is a shame as it worked no problem in 3.0, well its only a problem if you are using large images on a mac, which has a real problem with large png images..
