I convert jpg and bmp to .gif on my XP system and then create a coco disk image of the GIF's that I then write to a floppy disk for viewing on the coco3.

The viewer I was talking about is an add-in for Projector-3. You drop the file onto the P-3 boot disk and then BMP becomes a part of the P-3 system automatically.
I'll get ripped by at least 3 list members for doing this, but I've attached two BMP decoders for P-3, both written by Robert Gault as far as I know. As I said, these .fmt files go on the P-3 boot disk. From P-3, click on a .bmp file and they should load if they are within the specs set by Gault.
