Yeah, please use GIFs, JPEGs, or PNGs instead. BMPs are huge and waste space and bandwidth.

Shocked ,. Umm, how do you know I'm using BMPs???

load time? or somthing? I've found a GIF converter and I'm planning some new gfx for my site, so, I'm looking into it..

PS: Smiley Sorry for the BMPs,. But MS Paint is the only editor I got, so, and I do all my own gfxs, I'm hoping this GIF converter works.. they JPEG messed up my pic half the time..  :roll: , I do have RipTide, but I nomaly use that in Pixal Shifting, not web gfx,. not made for it..

Besides the BMPs,. how is my site?

JPGs are simply not suited for pixel art. JPG uses a compression that reduces the crispness of your image, as it uses fourier transforming to achieve a frequency-domain representation of you rimage. JPG is suited for photos. For pixel art, you need a non-lossy compression system. BMPs don't feature compression. You better use GIF.

It's not a mystery. There are like 1,000 programs that load and save in many formats. My favourite is http://www.irfanview.com which is small, free, and fast. And it loads and saves to almost any format.

na_th_an, BMPs do have a minor form of compression for paletted images, they can use a form of RLE. But not at 24bpp. You don't want to use BMP images for a website anyways, because even compressed with RLE, a GIF or PNG with the same bitdepth is going to be far far smaller (with PNG beating them all out 95% of the time). The last thing anyone wants to do is sit around waiting for your 2MB of BMP images to load. Tongue
