RE: Image Error
Hi Vash Stampida and welcome to the forums ^.^ !

.BMP is a bandwith hog especially for large images.

=== *I suggest you try to export/save to .PNG or .JPEG(faster yet) format. ===

The reason for the difference in color in the browser(FF) maybe by chance or a color setting in firefox, or it could be saving an indexed image to .BMP

Bitmap is also an older format.

If there is a special reason you need the image in indexed color, you COULD save/export it to .GIF *AFTER* previewing it in Gimp
To do this:

Image > Mode > Indexed... , pick settings, click ok
(if it looks good, proceed to export to .GIF) .Gif supports indexed colors

However, looking at the properties of the above posted pictures, they are both .PNG and only around 23 KB in size Smile

RE: Image Error
I can not totally reproduce that problem in PClinuxOS and a Firefox v24

A 2 colour indexed bmp shows with black lines on a dark gray background, so something is not correct with the way FF renders a bmp.

I go with iForStyle007,
Image -> Mode -> Indexed -> Use black and white 1 bit palette
Then Layer -> Transparency -> Remove Alpha Channel (if there is one)
Export as a .gif file.

and it is about a third the size of the bmp.

You are, as ever, correct.
For 1 bit images the file sizes here for, bmp, gif, png, run 80k 30k 6.6k

As earlier, in FF (v24) I get a dark gray background here with the bmp image so I thought I would try Imagemagick
A bright green/red this time. In Opera (v12) browser both are bright green., so not only FF.
