Default Bitmap .bmp image files, are not uploadable, to the site

I wanted to upload a couple of .bmp image files, from a mini oscilloscope that I have, rather then converting it to a different file type, I ended up posting a link to the images instead. The images bitmap images are not compatible to be uploaded to smokstak, is there a technical reason, that this is not feasible, file size wise?, ect? Thanks Harry!

Bitmaps are an antiquated miserable format. Please convert.

I might have to see if if any of the open source firmware for this mini dso, ds212, can save "screenshots", in any other file types, because bitmap files are apparently the only way to save screenshots, on this dso, it also lists other files save type options, but the others are not for images., Thanks Harry!
