This line is telling you that the system can't find a command called  
"convert". You might have the path set up wrong.

If you're working from the command line, type "which  
convert" (without the quotes). You should see something like "/usr/ 
local/bin/convert" as the result (that's the result on my machine).  
If you don't see that (the system will say something like "no convert  
in /bin /sbin /...."), then either you don't have convert on your  
system, or the path is not set up correctly so that the system can't  
find it.
