Hi,

Bitmap is a format in which you can save images. You can edit bitmap images using the Microsoft office picture manager which you can access by going to start on your computer then typing Microsoft office picture manager' in the blank search field.

Press enter after that.

Once it has opened click on files then locate pictures. Open the location of your bitmap image, and open the image.

You can now click on edit pictures in the column on the right. You can alter the brightness size contrast color etc of the picture as you like click on file then save.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Lee Hung.

Bitmap

 
In computer graphics, a bitmap or pixmap is a type of memory organization or image file format used to store digital images. The term bitmap comes from the computer programming terminology, meaning just a map of bits, a spatially mapped array of bits. Now, along with pixmap, it commonly refers to the similar concept of a spatially mapped array of pixels. Raster images in general may be referred to as bitmaps or pixmaps, whether synthetic or photographic, in files or memory.
 
In certain contexts, the term bitmap implies one bit per pixel, while pixmap is used for Bitmap images with multiple bits per pixel.[1][2]Many graphical user interfaces use bitmaps in their built-in graphics subsystems;[3] for example, the Microsoft Windows and OS/2 platforms' GDI subsystem, where the specific format used is the Windows and OS/2 bitmap file format, usually named with the file extension of .BMP (or .DIB for device-independent bitmap). Besides BMP, other file formats that store literal bitmaps include Interleaved Bitmap (ILBM), Portable Bitmap (PBM), X Bitmap (XBM), and Wireless Application Protocol Bitmap (WBMP).
 
Similarly, most other image file formats such as JPEG TIFF PNG and GIF also store bitmap images (as opposed to vector graphics) but they are not usually referred to as bitmaps, since they use compressed formats internally.
 
 
May this help you.
God Bless.,

A bitmap is the graphic format used in computers. Bitmap files are one of the first image formats created. An individual dot that forms an image is known as a 'bit', so a bitmap would be the shape made by the bits when combined together. A bitmap uses a fixed method of specifying an image. When the 'bits' are put together they produce a picture which is stored as a computer file.

The picture can be manipulated, that is can be written to, changed or even copied. Bit maps can usually be used to display pictures on word processors, audience presentations or even database files. You can create a bitmap to do several functions like display it on a window or paint a geometric area where you would be using the bitmap for a brush.

One can edit bitmap files by using software's such as micro soft paint. Bitmap images usually have very large files, whereby you can convert it to a compressed format such as 'JPEG' which is smaller in size. Here is how to format a bitmap file to a compressed file using 'paint'

1. Open it in paint

2. Select file and save as

3. Choose any compression format and finally save.

The BMP file format also known A bitmap is a type of memory organization, image file format used to store digital images¾

Or A file format for storing computerized images.
