I was wondering about the significance of the .bmp type image file, in particular. I know about .gif's, .jpg's, and .png's. But I don't know what .bmp's are for. Could someone inform me?
.bmp is almost exactly the same as a .jpg just higher quality and it takes up more space due to less compression
Oh...I was wondering because most of the time when I upload images to something, they don't accept .bmp's, and I was wondering if there was something more significant.
Thanks for the info.
BMPs are not accepted due to the sheer size of it.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

BMP is also highly pixelated.
They're not as pixelated as some JPEGs though...
For example in Falcon 4.0, there is a Big quality difference between the two. The JPEGs usually look worse than the BMPs.
