limitation: jpeg decoder have its limitation, it only accept jpg file with width=16*N, height=16*N. Strange thing is for some picture it have a good visual effect, while some with observable quality loss. bmp decoder only accept 24bpp file, with a resolution that a VESA mode could support. Recommended is 640x480(mostly used).
BMPs are notoriously bloated. Wouldn't it make sense to have a format with at least a modicum of compression? Odds are it would make a smaller image even with the extra code for the decompressor.
