Most graphics files available on the net are usually stored in GIF or 
JPEG/JPG format because both formats incorporate data compression making 
them easier to store and transmit.  The way to get these files into BMP 
(bit mapped) format is to use a graphics conversion/viewer/editor. On the 
shareware side of things LView Pro is highly recommended.

The SIMTEL/OaklandU archive is a good place to find both Lview and graphics
