launchbox not showing .bmp screenshots

Hi,

 

I'm currently adding a few images for platforms than have screenshots missing and Ive noticed that when I drag and drop an image from a browser into the EDIT pane of a launchbox rom and make it a SCREENSHOT - GAMEPLAY, it seems to add the file to the ROM item fine but not display the image in the details tab at all. However, if I convert the dragged .bmp to .jpg then it works fine. What's more puzzling is that if I drag an image to the EDIT pane and make it a BOX - FRONT, it then displays the .bmp file fine.

 

Not sure if this is something thats just happened to launchbox, or if its an issu with browsers on Win10 (Firefox or Chrome seem to have the same result).

 

EDIT: Also, if I choose EDIT and ADD IMAGE to get a file dialogue box, into which I drag the image from my broser it appears as a jpg and I can add the image fine, and it displays in the details tab too. So it appears to be something to do with launchbox and/or my browser making the file a .bmp and the details tab not liking them.

I know that the LB Database does specify that images be in either jpg or png format.
And you're right in that manually added images in bmp format will not show in the Game Details. Funnily enough clicking on the images icon just above a game box will show bmp format images.
