Hallo -

> \documentclass{article}
> \usepackage{graphicx}
> \usepackage{epspdfconversion} % or \usepackage{epstopdf}
> \DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{png}{.png}{`convert #1 `dirname #1`/ 
> `basename #1 .tif`.png}
> \AppendGraphicsExtensions{.tif}
> % See .log file for a list of known graphics
> % extensions
> \begin{document}
> \includegraphics{Hello} % Do not use a suffix. That way Hello.tif  
> will be converted to Hello.png
> \end{document}
> The \AppendGraphicsExtensions command appends to the list of known  
> graphic extensions (to prepend use \PrependGraphicsExtensions).

thats a good idea! \AppendGraphicsExtensions and  
\PrependGraphicsExtensions are described here:


> That way TIFFs get converted only once to PNGs (the other solution
