You can convert your PostScript file to an EPS file with the utility 'ps2eps', 
which I found here:


creates image.eps (does cropping)

Then convert the eps-file with the 'convert' program from (I believe) the 
ImageMagick tools (I use PNG in the example, but it probably does GIFs as 
 convert image.eps image.png

This works for me.
