This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Support Common Image Formats (EPS, GIF, PDF, BMP etc.)

For what would be some simple coding to view bmp files by Adobe..., Lightroom would have been the new replacement to what was an excellent DAM software, Extensis Portfolio, (discontinued and Portfolio users not happy !!!!)  but Lr doesnt support a native raster file type hat has existed since the inception of windows, that of bmp. All others do. I am gutted. Thats Lightroom of no use, I have thousands of bmp files, and no  I am not converting them, as I am making them daily with the progs that by default make them, simulators, and also I have to make them for Msoft Access database displays as it only works on bmp.

As such Lightroom falls at first hurdle.

Sorry to hear that it won't work out for you. Lightroom is designed specifically for photographers, rather than as a general DAM tool.
