bmp files

I have run into a problem with Gimp. I had scanned a lot of photos using a windows based program. I just discovered that I cannot open any of them in Gimp. I get an error message that "this is not a valid bmp file". Yet I can open and view them in other programs such as Fspot and g thumbs. Has anyone an explanation. I had hoped to touch up these photos. These were my good photos and spent hours scanning them some years ago. Now I am fearing that they are no good.

get something like imagemagick and use utilities like identify or convert and examine metadata for clues or just try to convert formats and see what happens. This should tell you more completely what state the files are in and you can figure out how to proceed then. Probably easiest thing to do is just convert them losslessly into another format, maybe even just convert bmp to bmp if they are in a "bmp" format other utilities can read,

Ken,

If at all possible, use any other program to convert your BMP images to PNG format. You can think of PNG as being "losslessly compressed BMP". Not only will you most likely solve your problem with The Gimp not being able to open your files, you will also reduce the filesize of each image by approximately 35% without losing any quality. To my knowledge, there is zero advantage to storing/keeping images in BMP format, thanks to PNG.

Let us know how it goes,

Myke
