Yup.  Use imsnap (usually an icon of it in your workspace) to grab the
image, save as an rgb or sgi format, convert to whatever you want with
either the image tools from ftp.sgi.com (also usually included with the
machine in the 4Dgifts dir (I think) or use the 'im' tools available from
ftp.sdsc.edu, 'imconv' mostly.  If you want to save the 24 bit depth,
you'll want to convert to tiff files probably; if you want to save space,
use pict.

Need more help, yelp.
