I just realized that some of my users start uploading BMP files that are quite big (up to 1 MB).

Is there any option to convert uploaded BMP images to PNG?

-- EDIT:
Absolutely weird, I download the file that was uploaded by one of my users. Now I try to upload it here and in my forum as well. Both give me the error notice:

The image could not be read. Please upload one of: GIF, JPG, PNG

So how was my user able to upload the image?

-- UPDATE:
I checked qa_blobs table and see that the uploaded images are in file format PNG. However, q2a displays them as BMP? Is this a bug?
