Can WordPress resize BMP files?

Posted by Prem Tiwari | Updated on

No, wordpress can not resize BMP files. Beware that it does not make sense to use BMP files in a website because a broad number of webbrowsers is not able to display them.

Filetypes that are supported by WordPress and which are widely supported by internet browsers are: GIF, JPG and PNG.

Those formats are optimized for internet use as they compress image data. BMP is a common image format but not in the internet because it has large file sizes.
