Converting BMP file to JPEG in GIMP

GIMP is a wonderful open tool that is completely free for downloading. It is very versatile and useful for amateurs and enthusiasts alike.

Conversion of a file from BMP to JPEG (xxx.JPG) is easy to do in GIMP. A free alternative is the Windows PAINT application (recent Windows versions).

After opening GIMP, click on pulldown tab FILE and click OPEN. On my version it is the third selectable on the menu. Now find your BMP file on the computer, select it and click OPEN. 

On the same pulldown tab, click SAVE. You have the option to save in several formats. Pick JPG. It is just that easy!
