format file bmp

What is a bmp file and how do I open a bmp file?

The BMP file format is comprised of a set of image encoding specifications implemented for the production of uncompressed raster image files. These bitmap image files are attached with file headers that include bitmap identifiers among other details specific to the image content of the corresponding BMP files. The digital image content stored in a BMP file consists of pixels within a rectangular grid. The pixels contained in these BMP files can be integrated with varying color depths, depending on the file headers of the BMP files. Grayscale gradients may also be applied unto the pixels of a .bmp file, and these .bmp files can be exported unto more widely used digital image file formats with smaller size for optimal portability.
