Convert EMF to BMP online, for free.
Enhanced Windows Metafile (EMF) is a bitmap-based file format, which is the descendant of Windows Metafile Format (WMF). With an expanded color palette enabled by 32 bits per pixel and device independence, EMF is an improvement on WMF’s 16-bit file format.
The default program for opening EMF is XnView MP, which works across platforms. On Microsoft Windows (Windows), a popular program for opening WMF is CorelDraw Graphics Suite. On macOS, try WMF Converter Pro. Adobe Illustrator is another great program for opening EMF, which is available on both Windows and macOS.

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.
