BMP files are native Windows raster images. BMPs can store pixel data at several bit depths and can be compressed using the lossless RLE method. BMP images are typically much larger than formats such as JPEG or PNG.
To export a BMP file, make sure a map or layout view is active. On the Share tab, click Map or Layout , depending on the active view, to open the Export pane. Change the File Type to BMP. Set a name and location for the file, and any other properties, and click Export.
The following properties are available when exporting to a BMP file:
The compression scheme used to compress image or raster data in the output file. Choose from the following:
Compression is only supported when Color depth is set to 8-bit Adaptive Palette or 8-bit Grayscale.
The resolution of the export file in dots per inch (dpi). DPI is only available when exporting a layout. When exporting a map, the dpi is calculated automatically.
The number of bits to describe color in a pixel. Choose from the following:
Embed color profile
Include the color profile set for the map or layout in the exported file. This helps create consistency in colors when the file is viewed on different devices.
