Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a XCF (GIMP - eXperimental Computing Facility) file and from this, create a new image saved in the BMP (Bitmap Image File) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your XCF to BMP.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your XCF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the XCF to BMP conversion has completed, you can download your BMP file straight away.
We aim to process all XCF to BMP conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the XCF file you submit to us. The resulting BMP file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our XCF to BMP tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our XCF conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||GIMP - eXperimental Computing Facility|
The XCF or eXperimental Computing Facility format is a raster image file format native to the GIMP image processing application which is a freely available program used for photo retouching, composition and authoring.
XCF files along with containing raw raster image data contains additional information for defining image layers, channels, paths and other data. The GIMP application is still under development and is available to download for Windows.
|Full Name||Bitmap Image File|
The BMP file format is a two dimensional image file format popular on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Data is stored in the BMP file in a raster format with pixels being represented using various colour depths ranging from monocrome 1-bit per pixel (bpp) to full color 24-bits per pixel.
The format can also contain an image alpha channel which is typically 8 bits per pixel in size and is used to describe image transparency. BMP files can also optionally be compressed using a lossless compression algorithm meaning smaller files with no loss of image quality.
