BMP Image Format BMP Converter
BMPs are also known as Bitmap Image files. BMPs are raster images, like JPGs and PNGs, which are composed of pixels in a grid format. However, unlike JPGs and PNGs, BMP images aren’t compressed. The format stores RGB colour data for every pixel making up the overall image. As a result, BMP images can be very high quality and good for printing. However, this also means they can have much bigger file sizes than some other digital image formats. Many people choose to convert BMP images into another format for sharing or publishing online.
The format was originally developed by Microsoft, but BMP files are device independent, and they can be opened by most devices and photo applications. You can also use most graphics or photo programs to save images in other formats as BMP files.
ICO Image Format
ICO is the name of the format used for icons on Windows, such as the paintbrush and palette used for MS Paint, the tab file image for folders on File Explorer, or the different-coloured ‘W’, ‘X’, ‘P’, ‘O’ and ‘A’ logo icons used for Microsoft Office apps and files. The ICO format was developed by Microsoft especially for Windows. It’s not possible to associate an image with an app or file on a Windows device without using an ICO image.
ICO files contain one or more 2D ‘raster’ images – usually in different sizes so that they can be scaled appropriately as needed. The images are normally a lot smaller than most standard image files. You can use certain image editors and drawing programs to create ICO files from JPG or PNG files, or you can create the icons from scratch. Microsoft Paint, Adobe Photoshop and Preview for Mac can all be used to create ICO files. You can also use these programs to open and view ICO files.
