File format information for BMP and ICO

Mime Typeimage/bmp

BMP files are used to store bitmap images in a simple and uncompressed manner. Introduced by Microsoft in the 1980s as a standard image format for use with their Windows operating system, the format has evolved over the years and is still relevant today.

Due to the uncompressed nature of BMP files, they can quickly grow in size when using high resolutions. Modern formats such as PNG and JPEG can be used as an alternative when dealing with larger images or images where transparency is a requirement (PNG only).

The BMP format supports different pixel color depths, allowing creators to minimise file sizes if their content has a lower color depth. Due to their age and popularity, BMP files can be opened in most modern image editing applications without requiring conversion tools.

Full NameIcon
Mime Typeimage/x-icon

An ICO file is a bitmap graphics format first introduced as part of the Windows operating system as a means of assigning a user-friendly visual indicator for applications that run on the operating system.

Multiple images can be stored within a single ICO file; these images can be of varying sizes and color depths, with the operating system choosing the most appropriate size when rendering an icon for a specific task.

As the ICO format has been around for many years and is still used today not only by Windows but also by other platforms, it is well supported with many 2D graphics applications able to export to the ICO file format.
