Free JPG conversion online. Quickly and easily convert JPG files to GIF, PNG, BMP, PDF and more from this site without installing any software. Use our easy interface below to convert your image files to or from JPG.
This site also provides resources for free software tools which can also manipulate images as well as convert file formats. There are bulk converters for people who work with large numbers of images, or you can learn a simple image manipulation program like MS Paint that nearly everyone already has installed in their computer - most likely, it is sitting in your computer already waiting for you to find it!.
If you want the highest quality method with the most control, the best way by far is to install a professional graphics package like PhotoshopTM or, if you do not want to spend any money, The Gimp. The Gimp is a great way to get started as it is free and can do almost anything that Photoshop can do. With the gimp, you simply open your file that you want to convert and simply change the extension name, that's it!
So for example, if you want to change image1.bmp to a JPG, you simply open it in the Gimp and save it as image1.jpg and it automatically gets converted. You will see a dialogue which asks you what quality you would like the image to be, and the default is 85%, which is sufficient for most web and email purposes - the only time you might wish to maintain a higher resolution is if you are producing photography or fine art pages, in which case you should experiment with the settings to determine the best resolution you can offer while conserving bandwidth.
It is not enough to merely change the file extension (.bmp to .jpg) to convert a bitmap to a jpeg. Follow the instructions we provide or download a professional graphics package such as photoshop or the FREE Gimp.
Bitmaps are huge files and thus are very cumbersome to work with whether on a website or in emails. When you convert these images to a JPG or GIF, they are much smaller and when you use a robust program such as the GIMP, you can tweak the size and quality very easily.
