convert BMP to PDF
The given blog is all about how to convert BMP to PDF. BITMAP is a technical file format as compared to PDF format but here I will explain to you in simple terms “what is a BMP file” and what benefit you will get after converting a .bmp image file into a .pdf format.

BMP is a file extension of the image also known as “Bitmap”. It stores images in a raster graphic way which represents two-dimensional as a grid of square or rectangular pixels. In simple terms we can say that raster graphics characterized the image by height, width and by no of per bits pixels (smallest addressable element in display devices).

There is no doubt that a BMP file is a good image format, when you need images to be in high quality and realistic manner. Other than this, there are no issues while Sharing and editing the BMP image file.

Limitations of BMP Files

The BMP image file contains a large number of colors and this affects the size of the file. So, an increase in no. of colors will increase the size.

Data compression can reduce the size of pixel data, and this can slow down the reading and interpretation process and also affect the colour of the image.
BMP files are not easy to resize without pixilation of the image.

These disadvantages may be less but their effect on image is serious. As BMP image file contains a raster graphic image with colour combination in more bits than normal image, the corruption chances are high as well.

All things have bad sides too. And to maintain that balance, we will need some good things side by side.
Converting a BMP file into PDF is a good way to avoid the above explained con’s that the former file format offers.
