What is a "jif"? It's not a commonly used image format, so you'll need to tell us what it means. Or do you mean JFIF? If so, most JPEGs are JFIFs already.

Or did you mean GIF?

Why the conversion? Browsers can display either format. Why bother?

If you meant GIF, note that that's a lower quality format than JPEG (8 bit instead of 24 bit). The image might well look crappy after the conversion.

Lina,
Googling convert jpeg to gif yields a bunch of ways.

I can think of one scenario where this is useful. If a bunch of apps point to the jpeg image and you need to change the image before they can update their reference to the image. In this case, I'd leave up both a gif and jpeg version and tell the callers to switch with their next release.
