How to Resize a BMP

A BMP is an image format that is generally quite large because images in this format are uncompressed. It is the standard image format for Windows operating systems. While BMP images are quite large, you can resize them to a different resolution if you want to upload them to a website or device with a size limitation. Resize your BMP files easily without downloading software.
