Information about BMP and DDS file formats

File extension .bmp, .dib .dds
MIME type image/bmp, image/x-bmp image/vnd.ms-dds
Developed by Microsoft Microsoft
Type of format Raster graphics texture files
Description The BMP file format, also known as a bitmap image file or device-independent bitmap (DIB) file format or simply a bitmap, is a raster graphics image file format used to store bitmap digital images independently of the display device, especially on Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems. The DirectDraw Surface container file format (uses the filename extension DDS) is a Microsoft format for storing data compressed with the proprietary S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) algorithm, which can be decompressed in hardware by GPUs.
Technical details The bitmap image file consists of fixed-size structures as well as variable-size structures appearing in a predetermined sequence. Many different versions of some of these structures can appear in the file due to the long evolution of this file format. The DirectDraw Surface format is useful for storing graphical textures and cubic environment maps as compressed and uncompressed data files. The Microsoft Windows file extension for this data format is '.dds'.
