BMP Support

It doesn't appear that FILEman is rendering images of BMP (bitmap) images in the thumbnail view. Is there some setting or option that I can change to get it to show these? I have another extension that renders them just fine but I was hoping to uninstall the other product in favor of FILEman.

Hello James,

You are right. Thumbnails for BMP files aren't created on FILEman.

FILEman makes use of the GD image processing library which is provided with PHP by default. Unfortunately GD doesn't provide support for bitmap files out of the box. This is why we don't generate thumbnails for this format.
