Yeah, BMP have a big size, but it would not lose quality of the

Ever heard of lossless compression?
SeaBIOS has an lzma decompressor, so on coreboot, one could pass in a lzma compressed bmp (or jpeg). The decompressor isn't hooked up in qemu/kvm - it wouldn't be hard to do that, but I don't see it getting much use.
