Liam Bedford clarified for you the actual effect of the mv command.
If what you in fact wanted to do was convert graphics formats at the
command line, one command that would help is "convert". This is part
of the imagemagick collection.
It may already be installed on your system, or if not it will almost
certainly be available via the package manager (e.g. yum on Fedora, as
Liam points out).
Using imagemagick, to convert the file is as simple as
convert test.png test.gif
There are lots and lots of possible options (some of which depend on
the output format you have chosen) that can be applied to get the
specific results you want (e.g. changing resolution, applying filters,
type of compression, and so on).
