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

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

It is a lossy, compressed format, which results in much smaller file sizes. On the contrary, bitmap images (BMP) are usually raw, large bitmap files - as they’re the exact copy of the pixel values of your images. These images are also not very portable, as you cannot open them within your browsers. In turn, this makes it much more of a hassle to view, upload, and share BMP images.

To convert BMP to JPG images, you can use our free to use online converters to do so (essentially, you will convert the BMP to PDF, and then to JPG). 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


The use of the two file extensions depends on your preference and needs. JPG files are compressed, for a more compacted size and balanced image quality. Thus, for storage and sharing, JPG would be the ideal format. But if you require to further process or manipulate your images, then you’d better keep them in BMP format. It is also not recommended to convert images back and from, between BMP and JPG, as the quality loss may occur.

And that's that. Until next time!
