You will need some sort of image converter, or photo manipulation package.
One of my favourites being MGI Photosuite4
You just click on your Bitmap, and save it as a Jpeg image.
If you are stuck, feel free to send me the image as BMP, I will convert it for you into Jpeg, and return it to you.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org

I recommend Polyview, which you can see at polybytes.com. Moving this thread over to the computers/tech forum ... :)

You can't upload bitmaps but you can attach them to your thread.
The attach option is in the reply page, underneath the box where you type your text.
It's not a particularly user friendly option because:
people can't see the image - it appears as a link which they download to their computer
bitmap files are much larger so it is a bigger download
Did you get any software with the camera that you might be able to use to convert the files?

Microsoft Paint (included with Windows) allows you to open a BMP and save it as a JPG. Although far from the best editor around it can perform this at least.
