BMP is a Windows file extension, often used for icons and used in graphics programs and is the native graphics format for Windows users. The BMP format stores color data for each pixel in the image without any compression. This method of storing image information allows for crisp, high-quality graphics, but tends to be inefficient as it produces large file sizes. The JPEG and GIF formats are also bitmaps, but use image compression algorithms that can significantly decrease their file size. For this reason, JPEG and GIF images are used on the Web, while BMP images are often used for printable images.
