Nothing happened. Just I received test mail with no Face header.
I got no error message.

OK. I installed ImageMagick and confirmed "convert" command is valid.
I retried to send test mail and got time lag.
It is evidence that Gnus processed something.
Error mssage wasn't displayed.
But I received test mail with no Face header again.

I see. I generated PNG file by GIMP because I am used to it.
And I set .gnus.el

(setq message-required-headers
      (nconc message-required-headers
             (list '(Face . (lambda ()
                              (gnus-convert-png-to-face "~/face.png"))))))

Finally I generated and inserted Face header succesfully.
Thank you very much.
