Can you clarify the origins and state of the bitmap files?  For 
example, were the bitmaps generated by the notebook front end by
converting a graphics cell to a bitmap from a menu command?  Or  were
the files created by a third-party application, and you want to import
the graphic into the Mathematica kernel?  What is the  format of the
bitmap (e.g. TIFF, JPEG, GIF, etc.)?  What platform are you working on?
