Device Independent Bitmap

Pros

  • Every BMP file is device-independent, meaning you can store and display it across different screens and devices without losing quality.  
  • It is a highly versatile format. It can handle multiple profiles, color depths, and alpha channels. Moreover, it supports color compression. 
  • BMP formats are compatible with many software types and web browsers. It can also work with many photo editing programs like Adobe Photoshop. 

Cons

  • Some users believe BMP file formats are old-fashioned since Microsoft initially designed them for older Windows desktop applications until Apple and Android devices took over. 
  • Uncompressed BMP files can be much larger than PNG and JPEG files, making it challenging to share them. Furthermore, they can be too large to store on hard drives with limited space or use on websites. 
  • They can only hold RGB images.
