I use

pstoimg -density 300 -antialias -aaliastext -type png -transparent

Here pstoimg is a script from latex2html distribution.

Examples of the result you can see if you create a pedigree here:

site uses TeX, PSTricks and pst-pdgr package internally).

Good luck

To accuse oneself shows that one's education has begun.  To accuse neither
oneself nor others shows that one's education is complete.
