BMP is also known as Bitmap image file. It is a simple raster graphics image file format designed to store bitmap digital images independently of a display device, originally and primarily on Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems. The format is sometimes known as Device-Independent Bitmap (DIB), since, when loaded into memory using Windows software, the image is held as a DIB structure.
