FILE TYPE EXTENSION DESCRIPTION Bitmap .bmp Bitmap is a window format for bitmap images Flash Player .swf Flash Player files is exported Flash movies. The movie is flattened into a single layer and scene, and all animation is converted to frame-by-frame GIF Image .gif Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) is a bitmap image type that uses "lossless" compression.
