Hi Krzysztof,
  the only solution for MS-Windows is my PNGBitmap package It read &
write Portable Network Graphics into the kernel. You need a conversion
porgram to bring Your Windows Bitmap's into the PNG  format (PaintShop
4.x, PhotoPaint, PicturePublisher ...). In contrast to the bmp format
PNG uses compression that will save diskspace.
You can download the package & the MathLink program from

Hope that helps
