As far as I know, unless you know the encrypting scheme for .bmp files, mathematica is not capable of reading those files as arrays without help from a third party program. Paintshop pro can read in over 30 kinds of bitmap files and a few vector formats as well. Among its output formats are RAW, PGM(portable grey map) and PPM(portable pixel map). -- Remove the _nospam_ in the return address to respond.
