Hello All,


I looked for Bitmap references from Microsoft and found below links : 


1)      Bitmap storage : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd183391(v=vs.85).aspx (This is mentioned by Vadim also)

2)      Bitmap Overview : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd183377(v=vs.85).aspx 

3)      Bitmap Reference : This is subset of second link. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd183388(v=vs.85).aspx

4)      Bitmap basic header : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd183371(v=vs.85).aspx 


I think 1 or 4 can be good candidate for common pointer to Bitmap information.

Please let me know your inputs.

I filed https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8168609 to track adding a format specification link for BMP.

The content of the Bitmap Storage link looks good but the hyperlink is rather strange I agree. Perhaps the BMP link issue could go under a different issue as this has nothing to do with TIFF?
