How to convert bit map files to JPG files.? Answered

My Digital Picture Frame will only accept .JPG files. Many of my pictures are in bit mat (and some other) formats. I need software that will convert the pictures to JPG. Thanks, Bill


Just about any image editing program -- including the Paint program that comes with Windows -- can now read and write JPEG files as well as bitmap files. Load the bitmap into one of these and save it back out. The better ones will let you control how heavily the image is compressed, trading off file size against image accuracy.

Download Paint.Net or another similar program. Install the program, the launch it and Open the bitmap (.bmp) file, and then Save As and choose .jpg format.

Note: Paint.net is an open source image viewing and editing program, It is 100% free and quite a good program...similar to photoshop in capability
