Copy it to your desktop (if you are a Windows man), and just rename it xxx.jpg. That works for me.

DON'T!

It's like converting a lawnmower into a gumbo shack.

Gifs and Jpgs are for completely different purposes, and you will do no good by converting it. In addition, your converted image will still only be on a 265 color pallette. Gif= large simple arrangements of shapes and colors, jpg= photos

For the most part he's right, but not entirely. It depends on what you want to do this for.

Changing a GIF file with flat colors, text and simple shapes to a JPEG is not recommended. However, you're not going to destroy an image or anything if you do convert something from a GIF to a JPEG and sometimes doing so can be really useful.

For example, this image that I found on the web was saved as a GIF when it really shouldn't have been:



After I threw it into Photoshop, added some noise, softened it up with the gaussian blur tool and saved it as a JPEG, it looks quite a bit different:



Hope this helps. If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

Cheers,
Jeff

Adobe Photoshop is expense but is great for any little thing like this and big editing jobs! But if all you want is to convert gif to jpg you really really do not need it!

In this case you'll have an 8 bit GIF with a JPG suffix, not a JPG kompressed 24 bit graphic.

You should also be aware that .jpg files have lose data when opened and saved repeatedly. I wish I'd understood that when I scanned some pictures that I no longer have access to. They have seriously deteriorated over the years. Now when I get a picture I know I want to last I save an archived copy as a .tiff
