Exporting BMPs instead of PNGs in SLADE?

Question

If someone could help me with this that would be fantastic, it's the one and only final reason I still have XWE installed..

 

Is there some way to export sprites/GFX lumps as BMPs rather than PNGs? I still use the version of mspaint that came with win98 to do sprite edits and it doesn't like PNG, and I just generally prefer editing in the BMP format.

That is one of the reasons I turn to XWE. [Plus, it can be used to extract graphics and resources from a bunch of old games.]

I, too, like editing BMP format images in MS Paint. Newer versions of MS Paint seemed to have dropped the BMP-editing functionality.

 

Incidentally, I have become fairly proficient in editing JPEG and PNG format images in GIMP, which I highly recommend. Another great program for modifying images is XNView, although there are no pencil or similar tools. (I.e., it can be used for resizing, adjusting color/hue/saturation, editing palettes - especially for assigning transparency, etc.)
