This is not good syntax. You'll have a GIF File with a ".tiff"
extension. Use this instead:
'printim wibble.gif white x720 y381'
From the printim documentation:
If the filename ends with ".png" or ".PNG" then GrADS will
automatically create the image in PNG format
If the filename ends with ".gif" or ".GIF" then GrADS will
automatically create the image in GIF format
If the filename ends with ".jpg" or ".JPG" then GrADS will
automatically create the image in JPEG format
Remember that the printim image has to have the same aspect ratio as
the data grid for it to display properly with the KML file.

'set kml wibble'
'set gxout kml'
This gives you two files: wibble.tif and wibble.kml.
You can then edit wibble.kml and change the name of the image file in
the <href> tag to whatever you created with printim.
