Does anyone know of any software that can convert images to be shown on mobile phones?

Most newer colour phones will handle GIF and JPEG directly (but you need to send these images via WAP Push or MMS), so no conversion is necessary.

ImageMagick ( can convert to the Nokia OTA Bitmap format which is used by Nokia Smart Messaging.

I am off-line at the moment (this message will post to the forum when I go back on-line later today), otherwise I'd try to point you to some other threads on this discussion forum. But if you search here on a keyword of ImageMagick, you should find some other information. There is also a web site that is good for quick on-line conversions, but I can't remember the address ... if you search this forum on a keyword of WBMP, you should be able to find the link. (WBMP is a monochrome bitmap format used in WAP ... the on-line converter that I am thinking of supports conversions to both WBMP and Nokia OTA Bitmap format, that's why I think the WBMP search will turn up a link.)
