BMP – is a popular bitmap file format for storing the scan-line files, presented by Microsoft experts. It is designed exclusively for single-layered scan-lines. Such files are able to have several extensions: .rle, .dib, .bmp. With the built-in support in Windows OS / 2, the extension is seamlessly opened by various applications.
Technical details
The image is placed with the DIB extension, which implies the ability to determine the pixel's hue in a form that is not related to the color display method. As a result, Windows OS can display a scan-line image on any display device. The BMP files are larger because they contain an uncompressed image.

XBM is an image format with the source containing image data in the form of plain binary text. The bitmap image's pixels support different shades of a single color. They were created as a format for storing images of icons and cursors displayed on the Graphical User Interface of the UNIX-based X Windows System. As an extension of the C programming language, XBM can be directly integrated into a graphics application code. The image data is stored as comma-separated strings of 4-character length, with each 4-character portion representing an 8-bit memory space.
Technical details
Quite similar to PBM files, the XBM format strictly supports monochrome bitmap images. Though several single color shades can be stored as XBM, most XBM images come in black and white. Some files in the XBM format use the .bm extension instead of .xbm. XBM format lost popularity, and the XPM format – an extended version of the former replaced it. XBM, however, still finds use in the Graphical User Interface of some software programs for storing cursors, icons, and selection buttons. XBM files can be read directly by a C-language decoding program, compared to other image files that require a graphical viewer or editing program to access their data content.
