    Sure from .bmp you can make your icon, this needs 2 files: the picture by itself and the mask (think of it like the icon's shadow).
    You can do this with a SVG I got nice results with both.
    From my point of view, if you want coloured icons with gradient, shadows and stuff, use bitmap.
    If you want less sophisticated icon like flat colors icon, use SVG (SVG also look cleaner 'cause it's vectors only). There are still many problem with color mixer.

    If you intend to port it on a device that have a big screen and especialy big zoom on icon, bitmap may look a bit dirty. On common handset it looks nice however.

    Have a look at "mifconv" keyword you'll find some nice wiki and advices

    Please note that it's not really easy to test i.e. on 9.0 device I have to restart the phone on every try.

    Using SVG try at first in a 32*32 square, even if it's vectors I got problems with larger canvas.

    Have fun! it's nerves-breaking at first sight but it works fine.

    Do you need to do it on a phone (i.e. on Symbian) or you just need to convert an SVG-file to BMP?

    Actually, SISXplorer (for PC) can extract SVG from .mif.

    As for extracting bmp from .mif , i don't know any software for that purpose.

    Re: jpeg or bmp from mif

    Maybe not the best way but it works:

    You can open your SVG-file in Adobe Illustrator, select all, copy, paste into Adobe Photoshop and save as BMP, JPEG or whatever format you need. Maybe Illustrator itself has an option to save as bitmap...
