Free online tool to convert BMP to JPG without affecting the image quality, via a simple drag and drop, without watermarks.

JPG (which follows the standard of the Joint Photographic Experts Group) is the go-to image format for sharing.

It’s a lossy, compressed format, which results in much smaller file sizes. Bitmap images (BMP), on the other hand, are usually raw, large files—as they’re the exact copy of the pixel values of your images. Their size makes them hard to share and a hassle to store. Also, you can’t open BMP images within your browser. If you want to share a bitmap image with someone, it’s likely their size will be an issue, as most email clients nowadays still have a file size cap. You can avoid all the hassle by turning your BMP images into JPGs.

To convert BMP to JPG images, you can use our free-to-use online converters. As we’re a PDF software, our process involves first turning your BMP into a PDF, before converting that file to JPG for you. A tutorial is included below, along with all other info relating to our service, requirements, and security measures.

What’s Better To Use? BMP or JPG


Each file type has its own application. It really depends on what it is you need to do with your images. JPG files are compressed. They offer a more compacted size and balanced image quality. Thus, for storage and sharing, JPG is the ideal format. But if you are looking to further process or manipulate your images, you’d better keep them in BMP format. It’s also not recommended to convert images back and forth, between BMP and JPG, as this may lead to a loss in quality.

And that's that. Until next time!
