Issue: Employee submitted a .bmp file, I can only use .jpg files in Publisher or InDesign.

Solution: change the file from .bmp to .jpg

Easiest way is to use Powerpoint

Insert picture file into a slide or copy and paste it into the slide.

“right click” on the photo, select “save as” and save as .jpg or .jpeg

Can also do this in Photoshop of course, but generally doesn’t work well in Word or Publisher

This will also work on .pdf’s
