Gimp can save as gif. Just either do 1) Image->mode->indexed then File->Save as and chose GIF in the available formats
or
2) File->Save as and chose "by extension" in the file type. Type a file name ending by ".gif" will do the trick.

However, if you use windows build of Gimp, you may need to install first the gif/tiff plugins using LZW. More details are given here http://www2.arnes.si/~sopjsimo/gimp/ (additional packages) and on gimp.org pages for the windows build. Unfortunately, at present, gimp.org does not answer, so I cannot tell you exactly th page URL to look at.

If you are looking for other software to save as gif, imagemaick is usually a must have on Unices (see http://www.imagemagick.org ), and there ar many graphics programs to use on unices. For windows, my personal pick is Irfan Viewer (google for the exact page URL), and Xnview work on the two systems Windows and GNU/Linux.

Regards,

Olivier.
