Read Windows Bitmap (BMP) Images

Reads Windows BMP format images. Currently limited to 8 bit greyscale images and 24,32 bit (A)RGB images. Pure R implementation without external dependencies.


  • Simple R package to read Windows BMP format images.
  • No external dependencies
  • Currently only reads 8 bit greyscale and 24 or 32 bit RGB images.
  • Limited testing

The recommendation is to install from CRAN.

install.packages("bmp")

You can, however, download the tar ball, and run R CMD INSTALL on it, or use the devtools package to install the development version:

# install.packages("devtools")
 
library(devtools)
install_github("bmp", "jefferis")

Note: Windows users need Rtools and devtools to install this way.
