Converting a DC or BMP to PNG

I've learned that the GIF format is patented and Unisys is enforcing it. Bummer! I am writing a commercial application that must display graphics over the internet. I don't think BMP is supported by all browsers.


Does anyone know where I can find a good algorithm for converting a BMP (device dependent or not) to a PNG file?

  • you can make java applet that reads BMP

    or you can learn about PNG from www.wotsit.org

    Try out http://www.cgi-resources.com/ and look at the C/C++ section. There's a Gif manipulator library for CGI.
