ask file "Give Gifs" with filter "blah only gifs blah,*.gif"

the text is not important as long as it does not contain a comma (,) 
but after the comma must stand: asterix point <appendix> where as 
appendix can be any, well, appendix e.g. : gif jpg html txt exe png ...

for multiple entries:

ask file "pictures please" with filter "gif, *.gif, jpeg, *.jpg, bmp, 
*.bmp, png , *,png"

see your documentation (the rightmost button on the toolbar) under "ask 
file" for more info and to see how to filter filenames under Mac OS.
