Some people produce multi-year series of images. Changing to PNG will
likely require updated color LUT's. If your system provides a library
with GIF support (e.g., SGI) it may be better to write your own IDL
routine to save GIF's.
Many people who work on unix systems are still running Photoshop 3, which
AFAIK does not support PNG.
