The latest version of ImageMagick, 6.2.7-2, permits you to produce RGB images from CMYK with the -colorspace RGB option:
  • convert -colorspace rgb cmyk-image.eps image.gif
With older versions of ImageMagick you need a CMYK and RGB color profile to get a proper conversion from the CMYK colorspace to sRGB.

Post a URL to your original EPS image so we can reproduce the problem and investigate.

This command produces the expected image:
  • convert -density 300 701256.eps -profile USWebCoatedSWOP.icc -profile sRGB.icm 701256.gif
Note, the LCMS delegate library is required to apply color profiles to an image.

Check the config.log file very carefully for sections on LCMS. It will tell you why ImageMagick failed to validate the LCMS delegate library.
