The BM file format represents a bitmap image used in the X11 version of the X Windows operating system. BM files contain screen captures and are not necessarily compatible with other versions of X Windows or with regular image viewers. Moreover, their size can be very large, so the best option is to convert them to a more accessible image format.
WebP is an image file format released by Google in 2010 with the aim of challenging the leading positions of JPG and PNG in the domain of storing and transferring digital images. The purpose of the WebP format is to improve the speed of browsing by offering the same quality as JPEG or PNG, but in a smaller size. WebP images can contain both lossy and lossless compression. They continue, however, to be incompatible with some image viewers and browsers, and are often described by analysts as "work in progress" — a format that still needs to be developed.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert BMs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .bm files you intend to convert into .webp because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select BMs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .webp files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the WEBP as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
