I am not sure this addresses your question.  What I have done is save the
graph as an eps file.  Then, my linux machine has a conversion package and
I convert the file to jpg, gif, tiff, or whatever I need.  My linux
version of stata8 allows me to save a graph as an eps file.  I don't know
whether this is possible in other OS's but I would assume it is.

Hope this helps.
