CDisplay RAR Archived Comic Book (CBR) is a compressed file type that can contain many different files stored together to form a single archive file of digital comic books. In reality, it is a Roshal Archive Compressed (RAR) file but renamed to CBR to distinguish it as a file that contains comic books. CBR files are also known by the more simple term, Comic Book Reader file.
The default program for opening CBR is CDisplay Ex, which is free, popular, and can read other comic book file formats. Alternative readers to try are SumatraPDF, which is also free, or CDisplay Comic Reader. For macOS and Linux/Unix, try Calibre. On mobile, use Comic Zeal.
Since CBR is an archive file format, converting it involves extracting the files and then re archiving them into another archive file format. Or, after extracting the files, you can convert individual images to other file types, such as CBR to JPG, CBR to PDF.

Bitmap (BMP) is a pixel-based file format that stores two-dimensional images, generally without any compression. BMP utilizes a dot matrix data structure called raster graphics, which establishes the color depth of the image. BMP is mostly used for digital publishing of photographs. However, due to the lack of compression, BMP files are usually large.
BMP can be device-dependent or independent. BMP opens readily in the Microsoft Paint application and is often associated with Microsoft operating systems. Despite the association with Microsoft, a device-independent BMP, or DIB, can open on almost any device, operating system, or application.
In addition to opening BMP files, many applications can be used to create them, such as Adobe Illustrator. Should you need to convert the BMP into a vector-based image, then consider using CorelDRAW. Other applications that can open BMP files include Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Photos, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and ColorStrokes.
