First of all, most of us would appreciate plain text postings, thank you.

Now, to this rather FAQ (really, the FAQ linked at the bottom of this
posting, I hope, does cover this topic pretty thoroughly): almost any
Windogs image editor (even paint) will save a bmp in jpeg format and that's
sufficient for pdftex; set up a postscript printer and print to file to
create a ps from any application (you may need to manually chop the funny
head and tail lines containing control characters fo specific printers).
