How would I go about doing that?
As file formats go, BMP is not that complex, and most apps don't
support all the obscure variations. If you just need a BMP file that
can be read by most graphics tools, then you write out a couple of
short headers and some picture data and you're done. (If you want less
than 24 bits per pixel, you'll have to generate and write a color
table too. Again, not hard.) If you're comfortable with bits and
bytes, then this probably represents about an afternoon's work. If
not, it's probably not a good workaround for you.
Google for "BMP file format" and start reading. Here are some pages I
