I just plotted a national 1 km radar image and saved it using FRMSAVE
in my McIDAS-X MCGUI session:

SF 1

Does this not work for you?

Since you are trying to create GIF (tm) images for web pages, it seems
likely that you will be wanting to do the display and GIF generation
from a script.  Is this the case?

Are you trying to generate the date portion of the file name from the
image that is displayed?  If so, there is more work to be done, but
we can talk about this after you answer the above questions.
