BMP is a huge image file format unnecessary for the internet. Highest quality JPEGs or full-palette-size GIFs are still much smaller than Bitmaps.

I assume Terra, Giga or one of the other admins disallowed .bmp formats so it doesn't gobble up our juicy bandwidth or slow visitors down especially for dial-up users.

By saving the image as GIF or JPEG you can do that. If I recall correctly you were on dial-up, no? You'll be waiting at least several minutes if not more just uploading a BMP let alone downloading it. What paint program(s) do/are you use/using?

I'm sure it can save as .jpg, .gif or .png instead of .bmp
