    Hi, I initially tried to find an online batch image convertor and now think that OSX automator can do the task.
    I just cannot seem to puzzle it out (350 png's to gif) ,it appears that the option for gifs is not there ?
    Can anyone please,please give me a 1,2,3,4 on how to do this ?

    That's because(I believe) it uses Preview to save as an image type, and Preview doesn't do GIFs. I have Graphic Converter, but that didn't show in the options.

    Yes Preview can, just hold down the "Alt" key before clicking on the image selection box to bring up all the hidden format options.

    Now Automator or AppleScript on the other hand....
