Its ok, I remembered a program I have. Irfan View, as I type is it converting all 2437 files from bmp to png.

That might help a tiny bit, but in the end *.png is a lossless image format and the filesize will still be pretty large. Go *.jpg and you will probably shave a gig off of that size.
Lol are you sure you know what your talking about? I shaved 4 GIGS off :P

shard, someone could tell you to put a magnet to your hard drive to suck off all the magnetic dust inside it and you would probably believe them.

.bmps are taboo in image formats, no one wants to use them because they're so f**king huge. .pngs are much smaller than .bmps. .jpg's are even smaller, and can look exactly like the .png it was converted from. a 3.23mb png image of my desktop is only 673kb in jpeg format, and looks exactly the same. if you're going to store a shitton of images you probably never look at you'd be best off using jpeg

Depending on what the image is, GIF can be appropriate and will be even tinier.
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Honestly I dont give a crap what you all think. I know nothing about image types, except that bmp's take up alot of space and pngs take up less....

Thinkto, a screen of my desktop in png format is only 897 kb

Well Shard, it's totally up to how you take up space on your hard drive. Converting all your soldat screenshots from .bmp to .png is definitely a step forward, but converting them to .jpg is the right way to go when you have a lossless image converter to do the job for you.

(And by lossless image converter I mean irfanview, not ms paint)

Just stop with the MySpace angles. :)

What angles are not considered as "MySpace angles"?

Very nice app, but man, those default icons are SO GODDAMN U.G.L.Y. D:

Uh, the typical "I look down on you" or just angles with a hint of showoff. (IMHO)

Any angle that hides any part of your face you don't want to be seen.

.JPG is lower quality compared to .PNG!
Maybe you won't notice it that much, but I certainly do.
Almost anything is better than .BMP because of it's size although the quality is somewhat good.

You can even proof your point! Just create a new picture (size 30x30px) and fill it with any colour except black or white, save it as .JPG, close it and open it again.

Oh wait, I read it as "What angles ARE considered". Missed the "not". :S
Oh well, you get the point.

Any angle that hides any part of your face you don't want to be seen.
That's a good way to put it, though I'd say "hiding personality" instead of face. Usually the less there is to hide on the outside - the more there is to be ashamed of on the inside.
