Converting BMP to GIF

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.

GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) files are widely popular due to their ability to store animations and images in a relatively small size. Their compression algorithm implies the use of a limited color range (up to 256 colors), which means GIF files are great for storing static and animated images of a small size — like logos, icons or avatars, especially if you plan to transfer them or upload them online. GIF images, however, are usually not suitable for high-quality image rendering or printing.

Select BMPs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.

Choose Output Folder

Go go the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .gif files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.

Select GIF as Output Format

Then pick the GIF 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.
