Unfortunately BMP is uncompressed and therefore very large in filesize for an image. I chose not to include BMP because it takes a large amount of time to save to the db, takes up an unecessarily large amount of space on the db, and is very memory intensize to produce a thumbnail of.
TIFF/TIF has been excluded because of how extensible it is. I can not guarantee that the elog can serve up the image after it has been uploaded. From wikipedia: "The tagged structure was designed to be easily extendible, and many vendors have introduced proprietary special-purpose tags – with the result that no one reader handles every flavor of TIFF file".
