Images of different formats are generated, edited and transmitted on a very regular basis in a vast number of systems today. The BMP format is the native format for the Windows World and vast majority of windows-based applications supports this format. But a BMP image is quite large and voluminous. It becomes cumbersome to move it around in bandwidth-constrained systems or where bandwidth is to be conserved for cost purposes such as the World Wide Web. Such scenarios demand use of a conversion technique to a format, which is compact, such as JPEG, which compresses the image to a high degree with little loss in perceived quality of the image. This report deals with the steps used for converting an image stored in BMP format to JPEG format.
