How to convert a BMP image to a JPG image without any additional software

Digital images or photos are saved as files in various formats. Some people are familiar with those different types of formats and some are not. Bitmap also known as BMP is a type of format for images, which are usually large size files. Because these files are large, this may cause problems in storing or sending the image. By converting the BMP image to a JPG image the image will have a smaller file size.  To convert a BMP image to a JPG image without any additional software, follow the instructions below.


  1. Click on the “Start” button and follow the path “All Programs > Accessories > Paint“
  2. In the navigation bar, choose “File > Open” (Or you can use the shortcut by holding down both Ctrl+O).
  3. Locate your BMP image and click on the “Open” button.
  4. In the navigation bar, choose “File > Save As”.
  5. Type the name into the “File name” dropdown. (Original name is set by default).
  6. In the “File type” dropdown, choose the “JPEG (*.JPG, *.JPEG, *.JPE, *.JFIF)” option.
  7. Click on the “Save” button.
