If multiple edits are applied on a JPEG picture, image data will be
lost so it is necessary to keep an original copy of the picture in
a lossless compression format like BMP and only convert to JPG after
all the edits are made. Also converting a bitmap image to a JPEG file
will reduce the file size by a factor of about 10x.
JPEG and BMP image formats
The most used file format for storing digital pictures is JPEG,
also known as JPG. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group
JFIF image format and it uses a lossy image compression algorithm.
As the name implies, a lossy compression algorithm is an algorithm
that sacrifices image data for a smaller file size.
However the resulting picture will often be undistinguishable from the
original one by the human eye.
BMP, also known as Bitmap is an image format created by Microsoft®
for the Windows® platform. A BMP file format stores uncompressed
image data which results in large file sizes for the bitmap images.
Change BMP to JPG/JPEG easily
Almost any picture editor can be used to convert BMP to
JPEG/JPG files one by one but this solution is not desired when
having to transform dozens of bitmap images. Instead we recommend
the use of a batch BMP to JPEG/JPG converter application capable
of changing multiple images in one go.
With BatchPhoto image converter it's easy to convert bitmap to JPEG/JPG
files in one session. BatchPhoto can handle batches of bitmap images in one
operation and very fast. Besides converting images you can also
rename, resize and annotate your pictures at the same time!
Your settings can be saved for later use and even applied on multiple
photos without starting the application, directly from Windows®
Explorer's right-click menu.
But why not see for yourself if BatchPhoto is the right tool for your needs?
Download and test the fully-featured free trial below without any obligations!
More than a converter software
Need more functionality? Convert BMP to JPG/JPEG files and at
the same time annotate them with comments, date/time,
watermarks, and also rename, resize, and more. So BatchPhoto is
much more than a BMP to JPG/JPEG converter tool!
Note: BatchPhoto works on Windows® 8, 7, Vista, and XP as well as Mac® OS X Mountain Lion (10.8), Lion (10.7) and Snow Leopard (10.6).
BatchPhoto is designed to be easy to use. Its user interface is organized
as a three-step wizard as you can see below:

Using the program was easy and quick, I really liked the filters
it offered me as well as the filename modification. I was also
amazed at how many different output types were available. The
previews were also found to be excellent.
