    File conversion

    This is another piece of information that was available in the Run8 forum but is now unavailable. Anyone have any suggestions for a file converter to convert the .bmp files that Run8 creates with screen shots to .jpg files that I can upload to my file sharing software? I like Pixillion but just don't want to pay for it. I'm looking for something that will do batches instead of one file at a time.

    Any suggestions?

    I believe the default Windows Picture Viewer allows you to do it, but if not there's also Irfanview.

      I open it in paint and save as .jpeg. The problem is that you have to make it picture by picture and can't do it in bulk. Otherwise you can use imgur since it accepts .bmp as well.

        I've been using IrfanView since years now, it's freeware and plenty of useful tools.

            I do use Imgur but there is some kind of problem with my upload when I use the default bmp. created by Run8 because the pictures come out without color.

                  So far I have tried Pixillion, IrfanView and XnView. The Pixillion is not free for long even verifying that I am using it non commercially. The XnView would change the contrast of the screen shots upon opening them so that after conversion they looked washed out. I found this unajustable. Currently I figured out how to use IrfanView to do batch conversions and it is working well. I have not tried any of the other suggestions yet.

                  Thanks for all the input.
