    Love this plugin. Just plain simple, but it fixes some problems I have with the journalists on my site. Great job! Thanks!!

    I would like to suggest an additional feature. When you work with people that aren't graphically trained I see and have an additional issue: They don't really see the difference between a big (huge) .bmp file or a .jpg and they could choose to use the .bmp. It would be great (I'm not sure of GD is capable of this) to resize and convert .bmp files to smaller (if needed) .jpg files. Just to make sure 'all' possible problems are avoided.

    Thanks for considering it :)

    good idea! i just added it in as a feature in version 1.0.2 which will be available for download in a few minutes.

    GD is not capable of scaling bmp images and so WordPress normally cannot do it, but I found a library to work with bitmaps so they will be converted to JPG first and then WordPress will even create the thumbnails and everything as if the original uploaded image was a jpg.

    you can turn this feature on/off on the Imsanity settings page
