Converting PNG to BMP involves transforming raster image data from the PNG format to the BMP format. BMP (Bitmap) is a standard uncompressed image format commonly used in Windows environments.

Here are the steps to convert PNG to BMP:

  1. Read PNG Image: Load the PNG image file from the file system or a URL into memory.

  2. Decode PNG Data: Decode the PNG image data to extract pixel values and metadata such as width, height, and color depth.

  3. Encode as BMP: Encode the decoded pixel data and metadata into the BMP format. This process typically involves converting the image data to a bitmap representation and storing it in a BMP file structure.

  4. Save BMP Image: Save the BMP-encoded image data to a new file or buffer, ready for use or further processing.

Uses of PNG to BMP Conversion:

  • Compatibility: Convert PNG images to BMP for compatibility with legacy software or systems that require BMP format.
  • Lossless Conversion: BMP format is uncompressed, making it suitable for preserving image quality without compression artifacts.
  • Printing: BMP format is commonly used for printing purposes, especially in professional printing workflows.

Example Inputs and Outputs:

  1. Input PNG Image: "image1.png"Output BMP Image: "image1.bmp"

  2. Input PNG Image: "photo.png"Output BMP Image: "photo.bmp"

  3. Input PNG Image: "logo.png"Output BMP Image: "logo.bmp"

In these examples, the PNG images are converted to BMP format, resulting in BMP images with the same content but without compression. The converted BMP images can be used in various applications, including printing, archival, and compatibility with systems that require BMP format.
