MacTeX installs the convert tool from ImageMagick, so that
convert <basename>.bmp <basename>.pdf
There's also the built-in OS X tool sips, so that
sips --setProperty format png <basename>.bmp --out <basename>.png
This can be automated with the epstopdf package, provided you have modified you pdfLaTeX processing tool (in Preferences > Typesetting) by adding the --shell-escape argument in case it's not there by default (I don't remember, mine has this argument). See
Then you can write
and either of
convert #1 \OutputFile
sips --setProperty format png #1 --out \OutputFile
Tested here with both sips and convert, seems to work.
It's possible that XeLaTeX can deal with BMP format with no preliminary or on-the-fly conversion. In the tests I just did it doesn't complain
File: testgraph.bmp Graphic file (type QTm)
<use "testgraph.bmp" > [1
] (./test-tw.aux) )
but the BMP graphics is not visible in the PDF output.
Hope this helps,
