Is there a tool available on NICE that I could use to reduce the size of my bitmap files, without losing quality?

Question FR

 

Question details EN

I thought about converting them to ".jpg" format - but how to do it?

Question détaillée FR

 

Answer

Bitmap files (extension ".bmp") are quite space consuming. I suggest you convert them into ".jpg" files with "Paint" (programs - accessories) or "Corel Photo Paint".

The resulting files will be smaller, which means they will use less memory and disk, and load quicker.

 In any of the above mentioned tools:
 - Open the .bmp file
 - Select the file
 - Save As: choose the .jpg file extension explicitly
 

Your file is now considerably smaller in size and can be read/edited by other appropriate software, for instance Microsoft Photo Editor.
