If it isn't to be animated, just take a sreenshot of it and paste into your favourite graphics manipulation program and resave in whichever image format you wish.

Hi maj
Am i on the wrong track here,i was thinking this is a flash video or possible banner of sorts ? :-)

Hi skidzy, yes swf is a flash video, they can be converted to animated gifs using software like Magic swf2gif click here. It's used a lot for peoples signatures in some forums which allow animated gifs but not other video file types.

As the OP didn't mention animated gif, I thought maybe he/she just wanted a screenshot in gif format, hence my rather basic suggestion.
