The first time Sage ask me to choose an application (or a FileFormat), I chose PDF, but now I would like to export in a Image format (like png). Thanks in advance.

from view?

-  ``engine`` -- string or ``None`` (default: ``None``). Can take the
   following values:

   - ``None`` -- the value defined in the LaTeX global preferences
     ``latex.engine()`` is used.

   - ``'pdflatex'`` -- compilation does tex -> pdf

   - ``'xelatex'`` -- compilation does tex -> pdf

   - ``'latex'`` -- compilation first tries tex -> dvi -> png and if an
      error occurs then tries dvi -> ps -> pdf. This is slower than
     ``'pdflatex'`` and known to be broken when overfull hbox are detected.

So, you migh try view(<whatever>, engine="latex").
