Converting $S to BMP

The $S format represents a Hobetta picture image associated with one of the first brands of personal home computers available in Europe: the ZX Spectrum. Released in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd., this line of computers supported an 8-bit color rendering, which was considered an advanced technological innovation when compared to earlier version such as ZX 81 that only supported black-and-white. Though rarely used nowadays and compatible with a limited number of image viewers and editors, the $S format can be converted to more popular extensions for easier handling.

The BMP or Bitmap file format is a popular raster graphic format, compatible with a wide array of image processing software, both on PC and Mac computers. BMP files store grids of pixels and detailed information concerning color tones and shades, and are highly appreciated for their ability to provide increased quality images. However, due to the lack of any compression algorithm in storing pixel data, BMP images can often be very large in size and thus difficult to store or transfer.

So, how to change $S into BMP?

The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter.
