Most likely, GIF is NOT the right file format for your images ...
particularly not if they are color images; with greyscale images, GIF can
work, but it might become tricky when the browser has to display more than
one image at a time.

You'd have some possibilities:

Try to convert the images to GIF externally, for example in Photoshop.

Try to convert the images to JPEG extermally, and then use a Search and
Replace in the HTML files to change the file names.

Hope, this can help.
