There is AFAIK no specific gnuplot image format, so saving to some other
format would have to be involved anyway. My version of Gnuplot includes
support for PNG, jpeg, encapsulated PostScript and SVG among other things.
PNG is probably the best overall choice.
For bonus points, one could generate the format the browser says it
 "set terminal" at the gnuplot prompt lists them.
