A Java library to faciliate the loading & saving of Windows BMP pictures. It can read 2, 16, 256 or 24-bit colour pictures and write internal Java image objects as 24-bit colour bitmaps.

The classes are free for your own personal use, and provides a simple way to work with lossless images bmp in Java. If you intend to do more serious work with images, I'd advise using the superior PNG format rather than BMP. (*ref JAI below).
