BMP file information

Full NameBitmap Image File
Mime Typeimage/bmp

A BMP file is an image file format created by Microsoft in the '80s for use with their Windows operating system. Due to its integral support within Windows and the prevalence of Windows-based computers over the years, the BMP format has become well supported by many image editing applications.


The BMP format is largely considered a legacy format at this point, with designers and digital artists preferring more modern formats such as PNG and JPG for storing and distributing their work.

Palette and Transparency Support

While the BMP format does not support transparency, it does support the use of 1-bit, 4-bit, and 8-bit color palettes to enable efficient lossless storage of images where the total number of colors used fits within a set limit of either 2, 16, or 256 colors.

Compression Technology

BMP files do not support compression, which is why people prefer a more modern format, such as PNG, over using BMP to store an image.
