tiff2png provides direct TIFF-to-PNG conversion capabilities in a single package. The primary goal was to preserve alpha (transparency) information, but scaling information is also preserved, and the compression setting can be set by the user. This is a command-line program with batch capabilities (e.g., ``tiff2png *.tiff'').
Note that Willem's tiff2png page has a separate offshoot of version 0.7 that he labelled version 0.82. It has a couple of new features (such as the ability to automatically convert certain text info) that should be merged into tiff2png 1.0, but it does not include wildcard (batch) support, nor does it test whether the specified output file exists before overwriting it. This can lead to the inadvertent loss of source files, at least on Unix systems (where the shell would expand ``tiff2png *.tiff'' into a list of actual filenames, the second of which would be treated by tiff2png as the output filename).
