Convert DIB to JPG online, for free.
Device-Independent Bitmap (DIB) is a type of bitmap (BMP) that displays properly on any device. DIB accomplishes this through the use of a color table that translates pixels to RGB colors. There are two types of DIB, bottom-up and top-down. The main difference between the two is that bottom-up DIB cannot be compressed, while top-down can. For additional information, Microsoft published an excellent article that describes the more technical aspects of DIB.
As a device-independent file type, DIB opens in most image viewers across platforms. For example, on Microsoft Windows, it opens in Paint. On macOS, it opens in Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and ColorStrokes. DIB opens readily in all Adobe image-viewing and editing applications. Furthermore, on Linux/Unix, as well as all platforms, you can use XnView MP and the free program GIMP to open DIB files.
DIB files convert easily to many other common file formats, such as PNG, PDF, JPG, and TIF. To accomplish this, there are lots of free image converter programs to choose from, such as XNConvert. FreeConvert's free tool can also be used to convert DIB files: DIB to JPG, DIB to PNG, DIB to TIF. One cool fact about DIB is that you can open it with a free text editor, which might reveal text that offers useful information about the image.

JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), is a universal file format that utilizes an algorithm to compress photographs and graphics. The considerable compression that JPG offers is the reason for its wide use. As such, the relatively small size of JPG files makes them excellent for transporting over the Internet and using on websites. You can use our compress JPEG tool to reduce the file size by up to 80%!
If you need even better compression, you can convert JPG to WebP, which is a newer and more compressible file format.
Almost all image-viewer programs and applications recognize and can open JPG files. Simply double-clicking the JPG file will usually result in its opening in your default image viewer, image editor, or web browser. To select a specific application to open the file, utilize right-click, and select "Open with" to make your selection.
