Is there away to save whats in a canvas, to JPG in Blitz + or convert with a line a BMP to JPG or PNG?

Blitz can only save in BMP format, but you can save in many other formats using the FreeImage userlib available at BlitzCoder:

II would think twice about using the JPG format. They seem to really be going after the people using if for violating their patent.

Does it have to be jpeg? PNG is a nice format, does a good job of compressing and is patent-free!

I thought it was the jpeg2000 format that was patented?
