    I have a ton of BMP's I want to change to JPEG's.

    I searched and found a few different programs but I thought I would check here for some suggestions. I don't really need anything with a lot of bells and whistles, just something that's good quality, easy to use, and free.

    ImageMagick makes it very easy from command line, and being command line there are no bells and whistles.

    When installed and the DLL is registered you have all the commands available from command line, no need to start any programs to do graphics manipulations, tons of options if you read up on it on ImageMagick.org.

    What you want would be as simple as opening a command prompt, go to the Dir with your pics, and type...

    Code:
    mogrify -format jpg *.bmp
    ...and that's all.

    But as said, it can do MANY other things, if you read up on it.
